Delhi School Admission:New guidelines have been released for the admission

New guidelines have been released for the admission of this class in Delhi. Find out what changes have been made.

New rules have been implemented for school admissions in Delhi for the academic year 2024-25. As per the new regulations, the ‘No Detention Policy’ has been abolished, which will affect the admission process for class sixth. There will be changes in the way students are admitted to this class.

The Delhi Education Directorate has issued guidelines on the admission process for the 2024-25 session that will commence in April 2024 in Delhi schools.

That’s interesting information. It seems like the Delhi Education Directorate has made some changes to the admission process for the upcoming academic session. Now, students who are aged between 10 to 12 years and have not studied from a recognized school till class 5 can apply for admission in class 6 under the Right to Education Act. It’ll be interesting to see how this new guideline will impact the admission process in Delhi schools.

Delhi School Admission rules for class nursery to class 5 and class 7 and 8 remain unchanged. No new process implemented. Admission will be done accordingly.
