If you think that the admission scene in private schools is terrible then you are wrong. Not just high-end private schools, but the admission crisis is prevalent in the government schools as well. The Punjab government schools are closing admissions for class XI closes on April 30 and a chaos of sorts has spread with the number of available seats falling short of the demand by a large margin. Applications amounting to twice the number of available seats have been filled. Parents are using recommendation letters from politicians, bureaucrats and VIPs to get their wards through. The admission process is most chaotic at Government Model Senior Secondary School. There are 450 seats up for grabs and around 1700 applications have been drawn. Out of 450, 350 seats will be given to students of the same school and the rest 100 are for outsiders.
