The Admission in the JNV School can only be taken at Class VI Level only through the National Level Competitive Examination which will be conducted by the CBSE. Children are also being admitted against the vacant seats in class IX and in class XI also through Regional Level Examination/Marks in the previous qualifying examination.
The test called the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas Selection Test (JNVST) is of non-verbal nature, class neutral and so designed as to ensure that talented children from the rural areas are able to compete without facing any disadvantages. Because of the poor communication facilities in rural areas special care is taken to ensure that children from far-flung rural areas get admission forms free of cost without any problem.
Sufficient publicity is done through Doordarshan, All India Radio, local newspapers, pamphlets, visits of Principals and teachers of Navodaya Vidyalayas to the local schools of the district. As a result, rural areas are becoming aware of the Navodaya Vidyalaya Scheme.
