Although there have been many discussions and opinions on how these assessments were performed, it may well be noted here that these school interviews that evaluate the students, their preparation for school, and the parents to some degree.  

School interviews allow school authorities to recognize the child's special needs so that any educational support is available. School interviews often enable the preparation of your child to enter the kindergarten and help get to know a student beyond the academics. The parents need to do extra homework along with their kid to crack these interviews to get into the 𝐛𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐠𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐞𝐧 𝐢𝐧 𝐬𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐨𝐫 𝟒𝟖 𝐆𝐮𝐫𝐠𝐚𝐨𝐧.

 A child is psychologically transformed through various stages. The age of 0-2 is about hope and trust. The confidence of the child for the parents can be used to build the confidence of a child. You should have a good open relationship with your child in order to have confidence in you.

The last impression is the first impression. Teach your child to greet people morning, shake hands, and keep from picking up the nose. Make sure that "mam/sir" is addressed to authorities and not with aunt/uncle. Make sure your kid treats everyone with respect. Tell him/her to express their opinion calmly rather than weeping. A child who says sorry or thank you would certainly create a good impression, not just of the child, but of the entire family.

In front of strangers, most children feel shy about expressing their views. Their social interaction is aimed at overcoming this hurdle during admission. You can encourage your kid to recite poems to elders; insist on talking in English at family gatherings or with your mates in the workplace.

Besides, by conducting mock tests, familiarize your child with the interview/test environment, which helps them a lot.
