2. Dates are Very Important

important dates

Give calls to best schools in Karachi  and the first thing they will ask you is ,”Whats your child’s birth date?”

  •  Birth Date

Your child’s birth date will lead his future.

If your child was born before July he will be in different class and if after July it will be a different class.
So plan a year ahead and if now your child is one year right now  I am sorry to say you are already late.

  • Registration Date

All schools have a registration date and you have to register your child on that date.

So be very vigilant about these dates. Stay updated from the schools websites.

 Registration fee

While some schools charge Rs 2000 for the registration, Karachi Grammar School registration is free, and other schools such as British Overseas School charge Rs. 40,000(non-refundable)

Documents required for Registration

  • Child birth certificate
  • NIC copies of both parents
  • A family photograph
  • Some schools also ask for the vaccination record
  • School leaving certificate of previous institution

Completing the Registration Form

Always take a pen with you.

Read the form thoroughly and fill it in correct English, the writing should be neat without grammatical errors.

Write honestly about your occupation.

Always give accurate information.

What are the best schools in Karachi looking for?


Once you get a call or a message from the school for the interview, start preparing.

Preparing for the Interview

Best schools in Karachi want children from well educated families to be a part of them. This maintains their standards and decorum.

The interviewer is smart enough to judge you by your conversation and can easily pin point if you are pretending to be someone you are not.

Also its best that you don’t pressurize your child about performing perfectly in the interview rather keep him calm and just prepare him for the basic academic requirements according to the class.


3.What to Wear in the Interview

Wear simple, comfortable clothes, nothing too flashy and not over the top. Your clothes should reflect your seriousness towards the interview and your child not your desperation.

4.Your Attitude matters

Be honest, and please don’t try to pretend to be someone you are not.
Be confident but definitely not OVER CONFIDENT.

A gentle smile, a firm handshake, eye to eye contact and clear, concise answers impress everyone.

5.Common Questions in a School Interview

What do you do?(more questions related to your profession).
Why did you choose this school?
How much time do you spend with your child?
Do you live in a joint family or a nuclear family.

Are there siblings in the school?



decisionChildren whose siblings  are already attending the school are given admission easily.

And if you are a stake holder, Bank CEO,Government officer the chances are high your child will get admission easily.

Then once you are done with the interview don’t be too hopeful for a positive response because there are chances that you might be rejected.

But then there is always another good school lined up and you can always apply there.

    1. Salam Aisha,

      Karachi is a BIG city! And there are like thousands of schools here, with varying tuition fees range, so my first recommendation is when looking for a school try to select a school which is close to your home. And then you can list down all the schools nearby and select the one which is most appropriate for your kid.
