Here is the feedback from one of the school about Online admission Process
-Principal (Dr. Mrs. Erin Nagarvala School)
“We will be using ePravesh® for our LKG admissions for the third time this year because it has most certainly proved to be beneficial. Naturally it saves the administration time and man power when compared to the old way of issuing forms. Most importantly it saves parents a very long and uncomfortable overnight wait outside the school gate to ensure they get a form. As every stage in the admission process can be communicated by email or sms messages it once again saves many hours of answering telephone and walk in inquiries. The Notice Board is a very convenient way of keeping parents updated at all times. As all the students data is compiled in an excel sheet it is convenient to arrange and sort as required. “
