Admission in Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya is made on the basis of a Selection Test designed and conducted by the CBSE. The test is called the Jawahar NAvodaya Vidyalaya Selection Test (JNVST). It is of non-verbal nature, class-neutral and designed so as to ensure that talented children from rural areas are able to compete without facing any disadvantage. Special care is taken to ensure that children from far flung areas get admission forms free of cost without any difficulty. Sufficient publicity is done through Doordarshan,etc.
17,09,087 students applied for admission in class 6 in various JNVs for 2011-12 Selection Test.

However, children belonging to SC/ST, Girls and Physically Handicapped and from the families whose income is below poverty line are exempted from payment of fees.
