Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday launched a virtual school and said students from across the country will be eligible for admission. The application process for the Delhi Model Virtual School (DMVS) began on Wednesday. The school is for grades 9-12.
“Admission to the schooling platform will be open to students from all over India and they will also be prepared by experts for entrance exams like NEET, CUET and JEE along with skill-based training,” Kejriwal said in an online briefing.
The Chief Minister said that the country’s first virtual school will be a milestone in the education sector.
“There are many children who cannot go to school because there are problems such as the school being far away or other obstacles. Many parents do not educate their daughters because they do not want to send them away.
“We are starting this virtual school to ensure that it is educated. This school is inspired by the virtual classes that had been necessary due to the Covid-19 pandemic,” he said.
Classes will be online and recorded lectures will also be uploaded online, Kejriwal added.
