Navodaya (JNVST) School Entrance Exam


Before introducing to JNVST Coaching , we must first understand what Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya Samithi is. The National Policy on Education-1986 envisaged setting up of residential schools, to be called Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas, that would bring out the best of rural talent.

It was felt that children with special talent or aptitude should be provided opportunities to progress at a faster pace by making good quality education available to them irrespective of their capacity to pay for it. Such education would enable students from rural areas to compete with their urban counterparts on an equal footing; seamlessly assimilating and integrating them into the mainstream of the society.

The Navodaya Vidyalaya System which began as a unique experiment, is today unparalleled in the annals of school education in India and elsewhere. Its significance lies in the selection of talented rural children as the target group and the attempt to provide them quality education comparable to the best in a residential school system.

VISION :  To provide good quality modern education-including a strong component of culture, inculcation of values, awareness of the environment, adventure activities and physical education- to the talented children predominantly from the rural areas without regard to their family’s socio-economic conditions.  Navodaya Vidyalayas draw their students strength from talented children, selected on the basis of a merit test, called the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya Selection Test,  designed, developed and conducted  initially by NCERT  and now  by CBSE. The test is held annually on an All India basis and at block and  district levels. The test is objective, class neutral and is so designed as to ensure that rural children are not  at a disadvantage while attempting it.

WHY JNV’s :  It has some of the best faculties who are selected through a strict selection process. Every permanent faculty has to face written test and interview along with detailed background check. The school faces routine inspections from various authorities both internal and external. Deputy Commissioner/District Collector/District Magistrate is head of the Vidyalaya Management Committee. The school have the best pass percentage among all schools affiliated to CBSE. It has on an average a campus spread across 30 acres which has many sports facilities. In fact, JNV is recognized as a separate state by School Games Federation of India. The students also take part in Japan- East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths, wherein students from JNV go to Japan as part of Exchange Programme. Many of the schools have also been awarded International School Award from British Council. As part of exchange programme students from India have gone to the UK. Many of the alumni are part of Civil Service.

ACADEMICS :  Navodaya Vidyalayas are affiliated to CBSE and offer free education to talented children from Class-VI to XII. Each Navodaya Vidyalaya is a co-educational residential institution providing free boarding and lodging, free school uniforms, text books, stationery, and to and fro rail and bus fare to students. However, a nominal fee @ Rs. 600/- per month is charged from students of Classes- IX to XII as Vidyalaya Vikas Nidhi. The students belonging to SC/ST categories, girls and children of the families Below Poverty Line (BPL) are exempted from payment of this fee. VVN is collected @ Rs. 1500/- per student per month from the students whose parents are Govt. Employees.

Special care is taken to ensure that children from far flung areas get admission forms free of cost, without any difficulty.
