KiasuParents.com Analysis (Updated 1 Aug 2014):
Phase 2C is now closed. After 3 nail-biting days for many parents participating in this Phase, many can now rest and celebrate the successful registration of their child in their choice Primary schools.
However, several parents will also face balloting at many schools. A total of 93 schools have completely filled their vacancies, with 91 schools over-subscribed, some exceeding by as little as 1 place. This is lower than the situation last year where 99 schools were over-subscribed in Phase 2C.
Rulang, Rosyth and Nan Hua are the most over-subscribed, by up to 3 applicants to 1 place. Anchor Green and St. Gabriel’s just managed to meet their quota with no overflow.
Congratulations to parents who managed to get a place in Phase 2C. For parents who have to go through balloting next week, we wish you the best of luck. Just make sure you have a proper backup plan for Phase 2C(S).
KiasuParents.com Analysis (Updated 31 July 2014):
At the end of the second day of Phase 2C, 74 schools have filled their quotas, with 72 schools over-subscribed.
In all, a total of 113 schools have filled 80% or more of their available vacancies. These are outlined in the table below. Schools with between 90-99% TUR are those at the highest risk of over-subscription by tomorrow.
Rosyth has overtaken Rulang as the school with the highest application rate (more than 3 applicants for 1 place). In fact, it seems that more applicants are trying for many of these popular schools despite knowing that the schools are over-subscribed by the first day. We attribute this to the side-effect of the new “20 places” policy that gives many parents the illusion that they have a better chance of securing a place in those schools.
Our advice to parents at this stage is to be rational, and go for the school that they have the highest chance of getting into, and not the one that is already heavily over-subscribed. There are many good schools which require balloting in Phase 2C(S), which parents can avoid simply by registering for them in Phase 2C. Do your best to get your school by Phase 2C, as Phase 2C(S) is a wildcard and best avoided.
KiasuParents.com Analysis (Updated 30 July 2014):
After the first day of Phase 2C, 59 schools are over-subscribed, while a total of 101 schools have filled 80% or more of their available places for this year’s registration exercise.
The table below shows the 101 schools which are likely to be over-subscribed. It is sorted based on the Take-Up Rate (TUR) to date.
Rulang leads the pack with an almost 3 to 1 over-subscription rate. Most of the popular schools at the top of the table will require balloting for Singapore Citizens staying within 1km. PRs will not have a chance to get into these schools in Phase 2C.
KiasuParents.com Analysis (Updated 23 July 2014):
We are now entering the most competitive stage of this year’s Primary One Registration exercise – the free-for-all Phase 2C stage.
Once again, to let parents have a taste of what to expect, we are publishing a table comparing the Phase 1 to 2B take up rate so far for each school, against the average take up rate for the same phases in previous exercises from 2006 to 2013.
For those who prefer to look at and study more recent numbers, we have also compared the number of vacancies remaining for Phase 2C this year, against the number of applicants for Phase 2C last year. We then sorted the table in ascending order of schools with the lowest number of places left, assuming that the application rate for Phase 2C is going to be similar to that of last year’s. This should highlight the schools which will face the greatest competition in Phase 2C.
In the table below, schools marked in RED are those with short-falls in vacancies should this year’s demand be the same as last year’s demand. These are the schools with the highest probability of over-subscription in this year’s Phase 2C. There are 83 of such schools, which is almost half of the total number of primary schools available for this year’s exercise (187).
In fact, we are expecting several more than 83 schools to be over-subscribed this year in Phase 2C.
Good luck to all parents participating in this Phase!
