Student Composition, Registrations and Admissions
As the first Chiefs’ College in 1870 and subsequently as a founding member of the Indian Public Schools Conference in 1939, we today have a commitment to uphold the aims & objectives of our founding fathers.
The Daly College was never seen as a neighbourhood school but as a national school with moral obligations to the neighbourhood and to those less privileged.
We are expected to replicate at a micro level the composition of our nation, in terms of regional, ethnic, social, financial and professional diversity.
We are also committed to maintain a healthy balance of boys & girls. This would be pointless if we do not encourage parents to provide their daughters equal opportunity for a good education. Equally we welcome the children of our old students, who are loyal, supportive and have played an important role in the growth and development of this institution. It is for this reason that on our Board of Governors sit representatives of the parents and of the Old Dalians. And it is for the above reasons that, admissions are based on a variety of factors.
As per the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act of Parliament, 25% of seats in our first intake class PKG is reserved for children of disadvantaged groups in the neighbourhood. As per law this will be followed and, depending upon the level of financial support provided by the Government, the College reserves the right to balance costs by sharing the difference among all the other students in the school. This is because the primary source of our revenue is school fees. This contribution will be at estimates of actual as determined by the Board from time to time.
We would make admissions from amongst those registered, ensuring representation of different categories in propositions determined by the Board of Governors from time to time. Categories would be based on overseas, regional and professional considerations and also ensures a balance of boys and girls, representative numbers from original patron families, siblings, children of Old Dalians, children of Government officials, Defence officers and College staff.
Examination Boards: CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) is our regular Board. In classes XI or XII the subjects offered are indicated at the end of this prospectus. There are four streams: medical, engineering, commerce and humanities.
Registrations: No student can be considered for admission unless he or she is registered in advance. Registration by itself does not guarantee admission. Admission is normally intimated in December and a place offered for the new academic session in April of the following year.
Admissions will be made by the Principal and his decision will be final.
Re-registration for Class XI: Students have to re-register for class XI. No additional fee is charged but conditions apply with regard to conduct and academic motivation. For students going from class X to class XI, the cut off grade for PCM will be B1 in Maths and B1in Science with minimum CGPA of 8.0. For Commerce students the cut off for Math will be B1.
If however, there are less seats then students who qualify, the seats will be offered purely on the basis of merit keeping in mind overall performance as well as performance in individual concerned subjects.
New students will only be taken provided there are vacancies after accommodating existing students.
Admissions are not made in Classes UKG, II, III, X and XII. Students securing CGPA 8.0 in CBSE, 76% in ICSE or 80% in any State Board may apply for class XI.
