2015 P1 Registration Phase 2C(S)

to
 

For a child who is not yet registered in a primary school after Phase 2C

Announcement of Results:

By Tuesday, 18 August 2015

Updated 13 August 2015: Last Day Analysis

Phase 2C(S) has ended today, with 13 schools oversubscribed, and another 5 fully subscribed.

The good news is that none of the oversubscribed schools exceeded more the 2.8 times the number of places offered.  This likely translates to a higher chance for those who may have to ballot to get a place in these schools.

On the other hand, it is depressing to see schools such as Macpherson Primary to have only ONE registrant for its available 131 places!

Interesting notes:

1. North View’s registration actually fell “drastically”, even though only 1 Phase 2C(S) registrant withdrew, because 2 others who were registered in other Phases also withdrew.

2. For only the 2nd time in 9 years (the last in 2009), Marymount is underscribed.  This is good news for parents who have to contend with Phase 3.

Updated 12 August 2015: Day 1 Analysis

After Day 1 of Phase 2C(S), 8 schools have either fully met their quota or are oversubscribed.

Good luck to parents registering today!  Please choose wisely.  If you are staying >1km from the schools which are oversubscribed in the table below, you should probably look elsewhere.

 

Updated 5 August 2015:  Predictions

For parents who were either balloted out or unable to withdraw from an oversubscribed school in Phase 2C, Phase 2C(S) is the final chance at grabbing a school of your own choice before MOE makes the decision for you.  Hence, it is imperative that you choose wisely to get a school in Phase 2C(S) to avoid mandated posting by MOE.

We have once again worked out the projected competition for Phase 2C(S), by comparing the application rate for the remaining schools last year in 2014, against the remaining places in the schools this year in 2015.

Our objective is for parents to understand the risk of applying for those schools listed at the top of this table.  Phase 2C(S) is no longer a Phase to gamble with.  Most of the choicest schools will be snapped up by Phase 2C(S).  Our recommendation is for parents to choose those schools which will clearly not require balloting in Phase 2C(S), rather than to bid for schools which will obviously be very competitive.  Also, for schools which have a very high shortfall in places, please do not attempt to apply unless you stay within 1km of the school!  You will run into the risk of being stuck and unable to withdraw in time even if it becomes apparent that you will not even have the chance to ballot for a place in the schools.

A quick note on the table below.  Phase 2C(S) is notoriously difficult to predict as it is so far downstream the Exercise.  Regardless, schools which have shortfalls marked in Red are those that parents must take extra care.  Some schools had no vacancies left over from Phase 2C last year, but have plenty left over this year.  It is likely that they will also be oversubscribed in Phase 2C(S) this year too.  Schools marked in Orange were oversubscribed last year.  Need to keep vigil on those too, even if they have more places this year.

Phase 3 registration

Dear parents or whoever knows well about moe placing of seats,, as in my case .. I have elder one studying in Tkps and I want my younger one also in the same school. Both are dp holders..so we don’t have a chance for phase1. Just tell me if anyone experienced similar situation.. The school is within 1km range of my residence and it has seats available after 2c supplementry. Just give me some hope for both of my gals in same school. Please whoever well known about moe method of placing seats reply to me!!!

 

 

 

MOE's discretion

MOE does NOT reveal information on how it allocates places in Phase 3.  It only says it is centrally allocated.  Parents will have no right to appeal even if they do not like the allocated school.  In other words, allocation is fully at MOE’s discretion in Phase 3.

Contact with MOE

Hi there,

I just called MOE and they said the schools with vacancies only take the applications. So that means there’s no concept of choice of school. After that, MOE centrally will process all the applications into consideration factors such as availability of school vacancies and ensuring a good spread of students.
That’s what I heard today. lol

2Cs Balloting

Hi sdnick,

   What is ur criteria for ur kid’s school? 

MOE Criteria for allocating schools in Phase 3

Hi All Parents,

I am the parent of a foreigner kid (Kid on DP). Can some one guide me based on their experience (as MOE never disclose this on the website) 

1) Which all are the (unwritten) criteria MOE actually follow when allocating the schools to kids on DP?

2) Does the concept of ‘Choice of School’ really matter or apply at this stage?
 

3) Assume if Yes, than does it mean that the school where we will submit our kid’s application on Thursday Aug 27, 2015 morning is considered as our school of choice?
 

4) Does MOE try their level best to accommodate kids in their school of choice, having known the fact that good number of seats are still vacant in the school?
 

5) In order to apply the concept of “ensuring a good spread of students…”will MOE post my kid to a far flung area from my residence, even if the seats are available in the school of our choice near our residence?
 

6) Does MOE sends the letter of rejection stating that they cannot accommodate my kid anywhere in Singapore only for the sole reason that no seats in any school is vacant? or there could by any other reason as well?
 

7) In a worst case scenario if my kid has been allotted a far flung school from our residence and if we cannot opt for this, does it mean that in future MOE will not entertain us for any local school if we try in higher schools may be in P2 or P3.

I know that these are typical questions and I will take your reply to these questions as something which may be based on your experience, speculation and street knowledge and will not take it as final verdict from authority.

However I urge to guide us on these with whatever information or analysis you all have.

We want our child to study ONLY in local school and we are very much concerned about his admission. 

Regards,
A parent like you all.

Phase 3 allocation

The following is taken verbatim from MOE’s website:

Registration at Primary School

Registration is conducted at the primary school with vacancy in this phase. The hours of registration are from 8.00 am to 11.00 am and from 2.30 pm to 4.30 pm on the scheduled registration day. Parent is to submit the registration form and required documentsat the school with vacancy.

Alternatively, parents can authorise a person to register their child on their behalf. An original letter of authorisation(80kb .pdf) is required from the parent.

Parents of non-Singapore Citizen (SC)/ non-Permanent Resident (PR) children should note that admission is not guaranteed as there are limited vacancies remaining for non-SC/non-PR children after places are allocated to SC/PR children.

MOE will publish the list of available primary schools for parents to register their child in this phase. MOE will thereafter centrally process all the applications and the posting outcome will be released to parents by 30 November 2015.

School posting will take into consideration factors such as availability of school vacancies and ensuring a good spread of students.

In view that Phase 3 vacancies are limited, MOE posting is final. We will therefore not entertain nor reply to appeals on the posting results. Our schools will also not entertain any walk-in applications for admissions or transfer of non-SC/non-PR children. As admission is not guaranteed, parents of non-SC/non-PR children may also wish to consider other educational options such as private schools.

The exact allocation parameters are not published by MOE.  However, it is suspected that MOE does consider distance and registration date/time, but only after other more important factors such as “availability” and “good spread of students” are taken into account.

Same concern herei

 

 

Hi all mummies.

 

I am a foreigner with DP and I’ll register my daughter in Phase 3. I am wondering how MOE allocates kids. 

if the applicants ecxeed the vacacies, how do they get allocated? Any informations? 

Thank you! 

Thanks for the useful info.

Thanks for the useful info. Do u happen to have the breakdown of SC and SPR applied for 2CS last year?

worry about the 2cs balloting...

very worry about the 2cs balloting in punggol. since 1km new school (only have p3 and p4 one like view and green) will have 75 out of 2c balloting, and then need fill up the 3 new (not ready under construction) but 1 to 2km away, not even though to count the famous schools (like horizon and mee toh) ballot students, and some more 1km pr and so on…can not sleep for a few weeks:( 

Kids without a school AFTER 2CS

Thanks for this table of very useful information.

I’m one of the unlucky ones who is a SC and within 1km who got balloted out in 2C depsite having a good chance.

One big question that bother me is what happen to those kids who are ballot out even during 2CS?

How do they get “randomly allocated”?

1. Does it take into consideration of distance  rather than throwing u into a far far away school? I stay in Sengkang and there is a few new schools which have alot of vacancies (high chance of having lots of surplus after 2CS).

2. Can I say that if I got balloted out in 2CS (touchwood), I will likely to be likely allocated to one of these (near my place and with lots of vacancies). I’m toying the idea of go for a Primary School in SK(within 1km) which have a 70-90% chance of getting in, instead of going for those Punggol new ones (within 2km) which have 100% chance of getting in. Any advice?

 

 

Thank you for the

Thank you for the information. It’s useful.
