In Delhi / NCR, the admission process starts from the end of August and runs till December. Some schools adhere to the point system, many draws, come first and more than 90 percent of school screenings.

Therefore, it is better to be well prepared for the conversation. Questions can be from any corner but whatever you have to do is answer wisely.
