I.          KV STUDENTS : Admissions in different Streams viz. Science, Commerce, Humanities of Class XI in KVs for KV students who have passed Class X  will be regulated as follows:

a.     The merit list will be drawn / prepared as per CGPA obtained by applicant in CBSE/Class X results in every School.

b.      The Seats will be allotted as per the rank in the merit list prepared as at (a) above vis-à-vis number of vacancies available in a particular stream in the Vidyalaya  and  as  per  the  option  of  stream  exercised  by  the  student. However, the Class Strength will be fixed by the Principal of the Kendriya Vidyalaya concerned in following manner:

The total No. of applications received from students of the same KV, from neighbouring KVs which are upto Class X or not having the desired stream, if any, plus no. of students failed and detained, etc. in class XI (including all streams) would be divided by the number of sections of class XI available in the KV (including Science, Commerce and Humanities streams) and the quotient arrived at, will be the maximum strength of each section of class XI of that KV of each stream.

For   example,  if   200   applications  are   received  from   same   KV   and neighbouring KV which is upto Class X and 12 students failed in class XI (including all streams in the school)  and 4 sections of class XI ( 2 Science, 1 Commerce and 1 Humanities) are available, then 200+12 = 212/4 = 53.

53  would  be  fixed  as  maximum  strength  of  each  section  of  Class  XI. However, the maximum strength to be fixed should not be less than 40.

Thus a  combined merit list (including students from neighbouring school which are up to class X or not having desired streams) would be prepared. As per the option given by the students and maximum number per section as fixed  (above),  admission  would  be  granted  in  each  section  (including detained students) e.g.: if 53 is the class strength fixed in a particular stream, 3 students are detained in that stream 53-3=50 students would be admitted (including students from neighbouring schools which are upto class X, if any)

c.   Concessions wherever applicable shall be incorporated while preparing the Merit List.

d.  In case of two or more candidates obtaining equal CGPA, the inter-se merit of such candidates may be determined as follows:

(i)         Candidates   obtaining   higher   grade   points   in   Maths   will   get precedence in admission.

(ii)        If two or more candidates have got the same grade points in Maths, then the candidates securing higher grades in Maths and Science taken together will get precedence over the others.

(iii)       In case of a tie between two or more candidates obtaining same grade points in maths and science taken together, the student older in age as per the D.O.B will be given precedence over the other.

e.   Principal may admit children to class XI only up to the permitted class strength.

f.    A student who was earlier not found eligible for admission to a particular stream may be    allowed fresh admission to a particular stream in class XI in the next academic session, if he/she improves his/her performance within one year from the same Board.

Note:        Informatics Practices as an elective subject is offered to all streams. Admission to this would be granted as per the combined merit list.

Computer Science / Bio-Technology, wherever available as an elective subject, is to be offered to students of Science Stream and admission would be granted as per combined merit list. Multi-media & Web-Designing Technology (wherever available) as elective subject may be offered to students of all the streams (Commerce, Humanities & Science) as per combined merit list.


(a) After accommodating all the eligible students of the KV concerned and other KVs in the entitled stream, fresh admissions to non-KV students would be allowed, if vacancy exists.

ii)        Humanities Stream A minimum of 6.4 CGPA.

(b) In case vacancies remain, after admitting KV as well as non KV students by the above procedure, a lower CGPA of 6.0 for Science and Commerce streams and a CGPA of 5.4 for Humanities stream may be allowed.
