Hope the seniors here an advise
I am keen to register my boy at the new Alexandra Pri (AP) -think I'm about 2km away. I will be under Phase 2c.
How should I plan in order not to loose out on my 2nd choice which is GESP (I'm 1-2km away)?
I think AP will be really "hot" because its P will be from Maha Bodhi. If I can't get a place in P2C, I'm not sure if I will be too late if I register for GESP under P2Csupp.
To get around this, I will wait till the end of P2C registration at AP, if there is balloting for 1-2km and chances are not high, I will withdraw my application and run over to GESP to submit my application there??!!
Anyone can advise if this is the best "strategy" to adopt?
Assuming your child is a SC, yes, you may adopt this strategy. However, please note that MOE implemented the priority for SCs rule last year and it was the first time in history that GESPS had to undergo balloting for those staying beyond 2 km. So, GESPS may not even have vacancies for P2CS.
Why don't you wait till the third day of P2C registration to apply? You won't have to go through the trouble of withdrawing and reapplying.
