For classes V and VII admission is based on the results of an entrance examination held in November of the year preceding the year of admission,followed by a personal interaction. The admission test comprises of the following components:

1. English (a written test of 100 marks; time duration one hour)

2. Mathematics (a written test of 100 marks; time duration one hour)

3. Science (a written test of 100 marks; time duration one hour)

4. Hindi (a written test of 100 marks; time duration one hour)

* Students who have not studied Hindi for more than three years are exempted from this test at the discretion of the Headmaster, on request. A certified copy of subjects studied form the previous school is mandatory for seeking any exemption from Hindi.

Sample papers for the above-mentioned components are available on the School’s website.

A merit list is prepared on the basis of the performance in the written examination. Depending upon the number of girls / boys to be admitted, students are called to the School for a personal interaction with the Headmaster. A candidate must pass (40%) in all the subjects to be eligible to be called for the personal interaction . A student is awarded marks out of 100 based on the personal interaction. The School lays a lot of emphasis on communication skills, participation in sports and other extra-curricular activities and promotes reading habits. Due consideration is given to the students excelling in one or more such areas during their personal interaction. A final merit list is then prepared incorporating all the above components (written tests and personal interaction). The merit list is not published or displayed anywhere but individual results will be sent to the concerned parents. There is no reservation for any category . However, due consideration is given to siblings (sisters / brothers of students studied / studying in School), children of Old Sanwarians and children whose parents are serving defence personnel (a 30% subsidy in the fees is admissible to the wards of serving Army/Navy/Air force Personnel). However, the performance in the written test and personal interaction is the main criteria. Children, who are unable to make it to the cut-off list, are placed on a waiting list. Admission offers are made to such students (in the order of merit) if any student(s) decline the admission offer or leave the School. The vacancy thus created is specific to the Class / gender and cannot be switched / swapped.

For classes VI, VIII and IX admission is based on the results of an entrance examination and personal interaction held in February of the year of the admission. The examination pattern and the admission criteria for Classes VI, VIII and IX is the same as for Classes V and VII. The admission procedure for Class XI begins in April after the Class X Board Examination. Admissions are offered in Class XI strictly on the basis of the performance in the personal interaction with the Headmaster. Students opting for Commerce with Mathematics are tested in Mathematics while those who opt for Sciences are tested in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics (for non-medical stream) and in Physics, Chemistry and Biology (for medical stream) for qualifying standards.

Given the nature of the School site and the demanding nature of the boarding life, the School reserves the right to refuse admission to those children who, in the view of the School's Resident Medical Officer, would be adversely challenged by the routine of the School.

The admission of a child will mean a complete acceptance by the parent/guardian of all School Rules as in force or as amended from time to time at the discretion of the School.

It is important for the School Office to have the parents' updated postal address. Offers of vacancy are datelined and will automatically lapse if formalities are not completed by the stipulated date.

The School reserves the right to refuse admission/re-admission without assigning any reason. The Headmaster's decision is final.

All newly admitted children will be on probation for one year during which the parents and School will decide if the child should continue in the School.
