    Dear Sir,
    My son will completed 5 years on 22nd January 2014, whether he can be allowed for admission in pre-primary class. Only 22 days less about to 5 years. If not considered then he has to wait another 11 + months to consider for pre-primary admission. I request your goodself for considering the above cited matter at least allow the students those who are yet to complete 5 years one or two months after.
    Thank you.
    Yours faithfully,
    Shanta Kumar Jha

    about the age of children for admission in class 1, i have a question to the honorable secretary Govt. of West Bengal that, what about the students who had already been studying in the Govt affiliated schools from the age of 3+ in sessions 2011-12? As these schools have created a new class in between 4+ to 5+ of age to through these kids in class 1 at the age of 6+ by plunging the parents in the well of another 30-40 thousand rupees loosing one valuable year gaining nothing. pl. clarify me whether any kid completed 3+ session can be promoted to 5+ session from the academic year started on 1.1.2013?
