Update: 15 August 2017
At the end of the 1st day of onsite registration for Phase 2C(S), 8 schools are oversubscribed, while another 2 schools (CHIJ OLGC and Woodgrove Primary) have no vacancies left.
The most heavily oversubscribed school is Springdale (300%), followed by De La Salle (175%), North View (168%), Jurong Primary (150%), Pioneer Primary (145%), Fengshan (136%), St. Gabriel’s (127%), and Tampines North (108%).
Update: 2 August 2017
With Phase 2C behind us, more than half the schools have completely filled their vacancies.
The chart below shows the current availability of vacancies for Phase 2C(S) (barring the outcome of possible balloting in Phase 2C and withdrawals), compared with the availability of vacancies and applicants at the same point in last year’s (2016) Primary One Registration Exercise. The purpose is to predict the possible outcome in this year’s Phase 2C(S) registration, assuming that demand for the places are similar to that of last year’s.
Schools with lesser places this year compared to last year are marked in red. The Projected Buffer column shows the difference between this year’s Places and last year’s applicants. Those schools which have lesser places than applicants are highlighted in yellow. These represent schools with the highest risk of oversubscription in this year’s Phase 2C(S).
There are 8 of these schools. Springdale leads with a shortfall of -60, followed by Fernvale (-51), Jurong (-19), De La Salle (-15), Fuhua (-11), Geylang Methodist (-6), Palm View (-6), and St. Gabriel’s (-6). These are the schools which you should avoid especially if you do not stay within 1km.
Remember that Phase 2C(S) is the last Phase where parents have a definite choice of school that they want to apply for, before Phase 3 where you have to leave it to MOE to assign the place for you. This is not a Phase for gambling. Go for the school nearest to you which will guarantee your child a place.
