Paper Title
Class 10th Student Enrolment Forecasting for Government Schools in Delhi

This paper aims to study and forecast students’ enrolment for the year 2021 for class 10th Delhi Government Schools by using several forecasting methods. Microsoft Excel Solver was used for finding the optimal value of single exponential smoothing coefficient (α) by minimizing the mean absolute percentage error (MAPE) for the given data-set. A plot was formulated between the arbitrary values of α for [0,1] versus the corresponding MAPE. Finally, the forecast values that were obtained from this method were used to evaluate trends in school and total enrolment of students; which finally indicate the successful implementation of the various academic schemes by the Delhi Government.
