Please find information requested below.


1.       There is no difference between ‘out of catchment’ and ‘priority
admission area’, it is purely the wording used, they both refer to the
same thing. 

2.       As per the previous information given ‘2018 Entrance Exam 14 boys
were accepted with the Lowest Score being 390’.  2018 Entrance Exam is for
2019 Entry.
