Update 21 July 2015:  End Phase 2B Analysis

Phase 2B has just ended, and 22 schools are over-subscribed, with one school having just enough places to meet demand.

ACS Junior overtook Tao Nan and Nan Chiau to become the most oversubscribed school for Phase 2B this year.  The other surprise is that Henry Park managed to escape oversubscription.  It appears that there were 2 withdrawals from the earlier Phases from Henry Park, and that bumped up the number of places available in Phase 2B by 1.  That was just enough to save the applicants from the uncertainty of oversubscription.

Other than that, the rest of the schools were pretty much in line with expectation.

Please remember that oversubscription does not automatically mean balloting for affected parents.  We can only know the exact balloting situation after MOE releases the information tomorrow.

Update 20 July 2015:  Day 1 Analysis

At the end of Day 1 of the 2015 Phase 2B Registration Exercise, 13 schools are oversubscribed, with another 20 having less than 20 places left.

Overall, there are no big surprises.  As we had anticipated earlier, Tao Nan (-15) and Nan Chiau (-13) are the most heavily oversubscribed, and we expect these numbers to go up even higher tomorrow.

Update 17 July 2015:  Predictions

As we move towards the final stage of the P1 Registration exercise for 2015 for some parents to enjoy priority registration before the free-for-all stage, 7 schools have already dispensed all seats other than the 40 places which were reserved for later Phases.  Once again, we compare the numbers between 2015 and 2014 in an attempt to understand the potential competitiveness of Phase 2B.

The table below shows the schools which are at the highest risk of oversubscription for Phase 2B in 2015.  We have updated the table to include the average applications in Phase 2B for the schools in the years from 2010 to 2014, to give a better understanding of the historical fluctuations of the application rate year on year.

The standard deviation measures the variance of the application rate from the average.  Within 1 standard deviation, we can be confident that 68% of the population will fall under the range of values.  For example, if you look at the numbers for St Joseph Institute which has an average application rate of 79 and a standard deviation of 2, we can be confident that there is a 68% chance that the next application rate will fall between 77 and 81.  There is also a 95% chance that the next application rate will fall between 2 standard deviations, ie. between 75 and 83.

At the top of the table is Tao Nan, which has an exceptionally high take up rate so far, leaving only 28 places for Phase 2B as opposed to 42 places last year.  Given that it was oversubscribed last year with an application rate of 64, if the demand is similar this year, there is no way Tao Nan can escape oversubscription in Phase 2B.  Incidentally, the average application rate for Tao Nan is 82, with a high standard deviation of 20.  The drop in application rate in the recent years is probably due to the measures taken by Tao Nan‘s Principal to control the number of applicants in Phase 2B since 2010.

The schools in the table from Tao Nan down to Kong Hwa are in the same predicament.  All of them, except for Kuo Chuan Presbyterian, were oversubscribed last year, and the number of places this year for Phase 2B are mostly lower or similar, with the exception of a handful of schools (Fairfield Methodist, Maris Stella, St. Andrew’s, Rosyth, Maha Bohdi, Pasir Ris, and Kong Hwa).  Unfortunately, even for these schools which did manage to increase their available seats for Phase 2B, the increase is not enough to get them out of the danger zone.

Some schools which were oversubscribed last year, such as Holy Innocents, Temasek Primary, Mee Toh, Pei Chun and Singapore Chinese Girls’, can breathe a little easier.  The number of places they have in Phase 2B this year should be enough to handle the demand.

Good luck to parents who are registering in Phase 2B.  Remember that you still have another chance in Phase 2C if you fail to get a place by Phase 2B.

Thanks!

Thank you for your support!  Do contribute and share what you know so that other new parents can also benefit.  We want to grow together as parents too.

RE; Any info on balloting

Hi Chief , any info on balloting due to the distance for p2b?

Simple example

If a school has 10 places and there are 20 applicants, it is oversubscribed. But if 10 of the applicants are citizens and the rest PRs, then all the SCs will get the places without balloting while the PRs will not even get a chance to ballot.

Oversubscription does not mean automatic balloting?

Why not? If not how can it be resolved?

Thanks for all the analysis

Chief, would like to say a big Thank You to you for the informative analysis of the phases that have helped me and my wife tremendously in this year’s primary 1 registration for my daughter. And yes, my daughter has got into the choice school that we would like her to go to and by doing so, the path for my 2 younger children have been set as well. Kiasuparent has been my most read website for the whole month of July and it will continue to be oart of my life for many years to come. Thank you again

To all the parents out there, thank you for the sharing in the forum. You guys made the difference in this very stressful period of ours (my wife and I).

No available distance data

Unfortunately, MOE does not publish distance-related data.  The closest would be balloting info, but even so, the number of people balloting is not published.

Any distance related statistics?

Is there any distance related statistics? Or are these are for 1km and below and if beyond that no hope? Thanks

Missed P2A

Yes, if the parents do not qualify for P2B, they have to wait for P2C.

Missed P2A2

For those who qualify for Phase 2A2, but landed with no seats in the school in that phase will have to wait till Phase 2C?

Poor Alumni (without membership) and poor teachers and staff of the school.
