Why opt to study in a JNV school

In every District of the country, other than in those of the State of Tamil Nadu, the Government has set up a Jawahar Navodya Vidyalaya (JNV) to provide free education, board, and lodging. All JNVs are co-educational schools under the management of NVS, with residential hostel accommodation for boys and girls. The students follow the curriculum of the CBSE Board.

Students of small towns and villages find it beneficial to study in a JNV since all the school academic fees and other general expenses, such as for books, are covered. It is only the students who get admission to Class 11 and 12 who have to pay a small monthly fee (students from SC/ST category, girls and students from BPL (Below Poverty Line) families are exempt). A fee of Rs.1500/- per month is paid by wards of Govt. employees who are eligible for children education allowance.

On the academic front, a JNV student gets to learn how to work on a computer. Sports and games and co-curricular activities provide a learning experience as well, with Scouts & Guides, NCC, NSS, yoga sessions, etc. What's more, it is exciting to interact for a year with students of a JNV in another State through the JNV special migration scheme.

The quality of education in a JNV is translated into good academic results. As per NVS data, more than 4,000 students qualified in the JEE-Main-2019 out of more than 11,000 students while 966 students qualified in JEE (Advanced) -2019. Out of more than 16,000 JNV students who appeared for NEET-2019, more than 12, 000 students qualified. The school average marks in the Class X Board exam is an impressive 77.75% while for Class XII it is 74.91%.
