JNV Class VI admissions eligibility criteria

Age criterion: The date of birth of the child should be within the dates of 1st May 2009 to 30h April 2013.

Educational qualification: The child should be studying in Class V in the entire academic session of 2021-2022 in a Government school or a Government-aided school or a Government-recognized school in the same District where a JNV is functional and to which admission to Class VI is sought. The student who is studying a 'B' Certificate Competency Course of NIOS (that is, the National Institute of Open Schooling), in the same District where a JNV is functional and to which admission to Class VI is sought is also eligible to apply.

If the student has already passed Class VI or studied in class V in any previous academic session, he/she is not eligible to appear in the selection test. In the case of the NIOS certificate course, the school from which this is obtained should have accreditation of NIOS. The student should also have successfully completed Class V in the session 2021-22. Those who pass the NIOS 'B' certificate competency course on or before 30th September 2021 can also appear for the selection test, provided they are in the prescribed age group.

In case the student is applying for JNV admission under the rural quota, he/she should have studied and passed the previous Classes of III, IV, and V from a Govt./Govt. aided/recognized school, with a full academic session spent each year in a school located in a rural area. Even a few days of study at a school in an urban area will make the student ineligible to apply under this quota. A student who has not been promoted and admitted to Class V before 15th September 2021 cannot appear for the selection test.

Important points to note- The child selected on the basis of the Test will be admitted only in the JNV located in the district from where he/she is studying in Class V and appearing for the JNVST. Admission to any other JNV will strictly not be allowed. Secondly, as per the unique feature of the NVS education program, students of a JNV located in a Hindi-speaking State may have to be migrated to another JNV in a non-Hindi-speaking State, and vice-versa, for one academic year when going to Class IX. If the student or parents refuse to participate in the migration, then continuation in JNV will not be permitted.
