The minimum age for admission to LKG and Std. I is completion of 3 and 5 years respectively. Parents desirous of getting their children admitted to the vidyalaya are requested to get them registered and obtain the prospectus and the application form on payment of Rs. 100/-. Registration, however, is no guarantee of admission. The child has to sit for an assessment and appear for an interview on the appointed date and time except in the case of LKG admissions. For admission to LKG there will be an interview with the parents along with the candidates. Admission will be made subject to availability of seats.
Students of UKG who have successfully completed their KG course should seek fresh admission in Std. I. For this, the parents should adhere to the admission date schedule notified by the vidyalaya. Non-adherence can imply that the ward does not need the seat in Std.I.They are to bring the convocation certificate at the time of admission. Application forms duly filled in may be submitted on the stipulated date along with the original birth certificate and a photocopy of it.
Students coming from other schools should bring their transfer certificates duly countersigned by the AEO/DEO/DDE of the area. New students must be introduced personally by their parents/ guardians who will be responsible for their regularity of attendance and payment of dues. Right of admission is reserved with the management and the decision of the Management in this regard is final.
Admission to higher classes is subjected to availability of seats, performance in the assessment and production of T.C. duly countersigned by the educational officer concerned. T.Cs produced from foreign countries must be countersigned by the Indian Embassy of the country concerned.
Transfer certificate will be given only on the basis of a written application in the prescribed form, to be submitted at least a week in advance by the parent/guardian. However, if a letter regarding the urgency is produced from the school where the student is seeking admission, Transfer Certificate will be issued on the third day of application. It will be issued, however, only to those who have fully settled their dues. The management of Chinmaya Vidyalaya has decided to collect the following fee from students who will take theT.C. during the academic session.

There will be regular classes in April/May for classes IX & X. Attendance is compulsory.

VI. Rules of Promotion
The promotion of a student to the next higher standard depends on his/her overall performance during the entire session. Since due credit is given to project/oral work, assignments (written and oral), periodical tests, Summative Assessments I & II, it is very essential that the student takes all the tests and completes all assignments in time. If a student is absent for any of the above, he/she will forgo the marks allotted.
Re-tests or re-assignments will not be held.
For a pass, from one standard to the next higher standard (standard V to IX) a student must get at least 40% marks in each subject or the total performance as arrived at in the last column in the progress report.
From the academic year 2009-10 onwards Grading based on Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation System is introduced as per directions from the CBSE. Students studying in standards V to IX must also get good grades in the Work Experience (Computer Science), Physical & Health Education and Art and General Education.

VII. Examination Reports and Results
Answer papers of all except those of Summative Assessment II will be given back within ten days of the examination. Parents are requested to watch out for this and contact the vidyalaya authorities if the time limit is not kept up. When the answer sheets are distributed, a deadline is set for presenting any grievances for redressal. No change in marks of the answer sheets will be effected after the deadline.
No arrangement will be made for special tests/assessments for absentees before or after the time fixed for tests/assessments. An absentee will forgo the marks allotted to such test/ assessment. Students absent for examinations without grave reasons will not be considered for promotion.
