Dates: 13-14 Aug 2013 Results: 20 Aug 2013
For a child who is not yet registered in a school after Phase 2C.
Update (14 Aug 2013)
At the close of the Phase 2C(S) Registration, we have 22 schools oversubscribed, and 1 school meeting its quota exactly.
In Punggol Primary, 6 of the 12 applicants withdrew their registrations, leaving the remaining applicants to fill up the last 6 vacancies completely.
Other schools are not so lucky. Northview, Qifa, and Unity remained just as heavily oversubscribed as in the previous day. Marymount was a big gainer in Day 2, with 41 applying for its 25 vacancies, as opposed to a relatively uncompetitive 26 in Day 1.
May luck shine on those who have to ballot!
Update (13 Aug 2013)
After the Day 1 of the Phase 2C(S) Registration, here are the interim results. 14 schools are over-subscribed, with another 22 schools with 90% or more take-up rate.
Punggol Primary and North View are the most heavily over-subscribed, at a rate of 2 to 1. That’s not surprising given that these schools have as low as 1 to 6 places left over from Phase 2C. For those eyeing Marymount Convent, well, it is already oversubscribed now, albeit only by 1 place. If you stay more than 2km, you may either be cut-off, or face a balloting situation.
Update (6 Aug 2013)
With the completion of the ballots, Phase 2C has officially ended, and what is left now is for parents who were unlucky enough not to get a place in Phase 2C, to go for their backup schools.
In the table below, we have sorted the schools based on the number of places remaining. Schools which have a take-up rate (TUR) of 90% and above are the ones which are most likely to require balloting in Phase 2C(S). If parents do not wish to go through the stress of balloting again, please avoid these schools and choose one with least 30% of its vacancies remaining.
Note that all schools in this list have vacancies for Phase 2C(S). The last column “DEV from AVG” refers to the deviation of the 2013 TUR so far from the average TUR (2006-2012). A negative value indicates that the 2013 TUR is lower than the average TUR. In other words, the school is less competitive this year, than usual.
