Admission Procedure

CNIS admits students who can be successful in the regular academic programme of Cambridge University, known as Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). In the admissions and educational policy of the school there is no discrimination of any sort on the basis of religion, caste, gender or nationality. Admission is awarded simply on the basis of professional criteria, like:

  • The potential of the applicant to benefit from the educational services provided;
  • The capacity of the school to meet the educational needs of the applicant, including English (which is the medium of instruction).
  • The ability of the selected student to meet the behavioural and/or emotional capability expected of a student of this school.

In normal case the children who enter the first Grade should be six years old; rarely exceptions are made. The secondary factors that affect Grade placement are previous educational system, academic success with the previous system, additional assessment by CNIS, and academic calendar.
