Sainik School Amaravathinagar to admit girls for Class VI

For the first time since its establishment, Sainik School Amaravathinagar near Udumalpet in Tiruppur district will admit girls to Class VI from the academic year 2021-22.

Principal of the school Captain K. Nirmal Raghu announced that the Sainik Schools Society would conduct the All India Sainik Schools Entrance Examination (AISSEE) on January 10, 2021 for the academic year 2021-22. While boys and girls would be admitted to Class VI, only boys would be admitted to Class IX, he said in a release.

The school at Amaravathinagar expects around 10 girls and 100 boys to be admitted in Class VI for the coming academic year, the official said.

Within the State, the AISSEE will be conducted in Amaravathinagar, Chennai, Coimbatore, Thanjavur and Udumalpet and also in Puducherry.
