Admission Procedure

 Talented students from each district are selected through an All India Level Entrance Exam conducted each year by CBSE and are given admission to 6th standard/class in the JNVs of respective districts. Till 1998, the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya Selection Test (JNVST) was conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education. The test is largely non-verbal and objective in nature and is designed to prevent any disadvantage to children from rural areas. Now admissions are also taken in Class IX and XI. During academic year 2008-09 admissions are allowed in Class VIII. These admissions are conducted through an objective and descriptive test containing questions on English, Mathematics, Science, & Social Sciences. This "Lateral Entry" system is devised to fill the vacancies that arise due to withdrawal of admissions of the children who are admitted in class VI.  


Since the Vidyalayas have an objective of providing opportunity and education to the underprivileged children of rural areas, the entrance examination has a list of eligibility criteria. They require the student to be:  

1. a student of V standard by a Government recognised school 2. in the age group of 9-13 3. a student of III, IV and V in a Government recognised school in a rural area, to apply for a rural quota. 4. a first time appearer in the entrance exam  


Well trained teachers are reqruited through a national level competitive examination. Trained Graduate Teachers teach from Class VI to X and Post Graduate Teachers teach XI and XII class students. Vice Principal assists the Principal in administration. Committees of teachers are formed to effectively implement the programs.
