How the Merit list is prepared?

The merit list of Nursery admission is based on a point-based criterion. All the Delhi schools, including private unaided recognised schools, are ordered to follow the unique point-based criteria for fair, equitable, transparent, non-discriminatory, reasonable and unambiguous admission.

In December 2020, the Delhi government were thinking of scraping the Delhi Nursery admissions, however, the principals of the Delhi schools opposed this idea.
