2011 - 2012 admissions
I have collected some information regarding the admissions for the next academic year (2011-2012):
Admission to St Patrick's Academy, Bangalore for academic year 2011-2012 starts on 2 Nov 2011.
Nursery: There are plenty of seats available and it may not be difficult to get admission.
LKG: Since students from nursery are promoted to LKG, there are not many seats available. 15 seats are expected to available for LKG in next academic year. The application forms will be distributed from 2 Nov, 2011. Since admissions are based on first come first served basis and seats are limited, the admissions are expected to be finished in few minutes on the same day. It will be really challenging to get an application form on that day.
UKG: UKG will be full with students from LKG and there are not vacancies expected.
1st standard: There are 40 seats available for 1st standard. Application forms will be distributed from 2 Nov onwards and admissions will be based on an entrance test.
2nd standard to 6th standard: There are several seats available and admissions should not be very difficult. In the intermediate classes, there are only one or 2 divisions this year and more divisions are expected next year. Usually, not many students will switch schools in the intermediate classes, so it will be relatively easy to get admission in higher classes next year.
