admission

Old Boys


1. The Medical Examination of Candidates for admission to Sainik School will be carried out by a Medical Board
 
2. It is not possible to lay down precise standard for height, weight and chest measurement for these candidates. But the Medical Board will be guided in its assessments by the physical standards laid down for candidates for admission to National Defence Academy. Height and to an extent weight are constitutional qualities which are largely governed by heredity. Therefore candidates whose parents are short statured and below normal weight may not eventually attain the minimum standard height and weight required for the Armed Forces. This point should therefore be borne in mind by the parent / guardian of such candidates before they seek admission for their children / wards.
