NEW DELHI: The revised admission guidelines for admissions into the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan schools have been released by the KVS for Classes 1 to 12 on the KVS website -- kvsangathan.nic.in. KVS admissions 2022-23 says that a student of Class 1 must be at least 6 years old as of March 31 of that particular academic year and should not be more than 8 years old on March 31. "Child born on 1st April should also be considered," says the guidelines.

KVS admission 2022 guidelines do not put any age limit on students for taking admission to Class 11 if the students are seeking admission in the same year they passed the Class 10 exam. Similarly, no age limit is provided for admission into Class 12 for those students who have not taken any break after passing Class 11. In the case of differently-abled children, age relaxation of up to 2 years can be given by the principal of the concerned school on the maximum age limit.

The revised admission guidelines also have provisions for the admission of children orphaned due to the Covid-19 pandemic over and above the class strength under the PM CARES for children scheme. These children will be exempted from payment of fees from Classes 1 to 12.
