An official claimed that the recently established Delhi Model Virtual School (DMVS) would probably extend the application deadline after receiving about 800 applications for admission. Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, introduced DMVS on Wednesday, calling it “India’s first such platform,” where students from around the country will be eligible for admission. The National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) refuted the AAP leader’s assertion, claiming that the Center had already begun operating the nation’s first virtual school in 2021.

“Since the application process began on Wednesday, we have received close to 800 applications as of Friday. There isn’t much of a difference between the genders in the applications that have been received so far, “the official remarked “Although it will be extended, September 6 is the deadline for applications. Nevertheless, many people are unaware of it, so we do not want anyone to pass up the chance to apply “said he. According to the source, the new session would probably begin in October.

The government is using social media platforms to tell kids nationwide about the school that will be associated with the Delhi Board of School Education (DBSE). “We are using social media to raise awareness of the school. Teasers on social media are also being used to reveal information about the school “Added he. Speaking of the fundamental tenet of the school, he claimed that since children now have greater access to the internet, it will enable them to pursue an education.

“Internet availability was quite limited during the early stages of the Covid-19 outbreak, but it has since increased. Additionally, we’ve observed it in our students at school “added he. “In the early days of the pandemic, about 50% to 60% of students had internet access, but that number has already increased to 90 to 95 percent,” he continued. He emphasised that the virtual school is for people who desire to continue their studies and that the government is not attempting to position it as a one-stop shop.

Every community has a primary school, but not every village has a secondary school, which makes it difficult for girls to attend school because their parents are reluctant to send them away, according to the speaker. “After class 9, there are more dropouts. Thus, this will benefit them “Added he. Kejriwal stated during the opening that the Delhi Model Virtual School (DMVS) would serve children in grades 9 through 12 and prepare them for competitive exams including the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE), the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET), and the Central Universities Entrance Test (CUET).

The school’s official website, www.dmvs.ac.in, opened the application process on Wednesday for the 2022–2023 academic year. Any youngster who has finished class 8 at a recognised school and is between the ages of 13 and 18 may apply for admission to class 9. The online platform utilised for the classes will include an integrated attendance tracking system and the institution will not impose any fees.
