Updated 29 July 2011. The last day of Phase 2C is over. 22 more schools joined this ballot list, making the final tally of 89 schools who will be in a cut-off or balloting situation.
South View continued to increase its red hot statistics today to an application rate of 486%! That’s almost 5 times oversubscribed. Assuming most of these applicants are within 1km, parents are looking at the stark prospect of having about 1 in 5 chance of getting their child a place in the school!
All the top 25 schools that we predicted earlier will be in some kind of ballot situation are now confirmed to require balloting once again.
Choa Chu Kang and Tampines Primary joins Frontier Primary, Edgefield and Yangzheng in requiring balloting in Phase 2C for the first time in 6 years.
Just a little note to end off this year’s Phase 2C analysis. For the first time in 6 years, Jurong West does not have balloting at 1km in Phase 2C. In fact, it has no balloting at all! It would appear that most of those who would be gone for JWPS have chosen to go to Frontier, the new school, which caused the new school to take brunt of the demand.
We hope our analysis has been useful for parents and have helped you all to make better informed decisions throughout the P1 registration exercise!
Good luck to all those who will need to ballot next Friday! As long as you have a ready backup plan for contingency in Phase 2C(S), you shouldn’t have to worry too much. Treat the winning of the ballot as a bonus, rather as a do or die situation, because it is your child that makes the school, as much as the school that makes the child. No matter which school your child gets into, what he or she needs more is your full support and understanding for at least the next six years.
Notes on Table
Vacancies vs 2010 Column
This shows the difference in vacancies offered by the school in 2011 versus 2010. A negative value shows a decrease from the previous year, which would intensify the level of competition for the seats this year.
Phase App Column
This shows the total number of applicants for the Phase versus the total number of vacancies offered for that Phase. 100% means all the vacancies offered for the Phase is taken up. More than 100% means there are too many registrants, and balloting will happen for that Phase.
Ballot Risk Columns
1. The Ballot Risk index ranges from 0.0 to 1.0
2. You should read it as a 3-part scale:
0.0-0.36: (Green) Risk of balloting only for those staying beyond 2km. Parents staying within 2km should not worry too much. As the value approaches 0.36, chance of balloting at this distance is actually very high. Any value above 0.36 means balloting at any distance is quite likely for that specific school.
0.37-0.78: (Yellow) Risk of balloting only for those staying between 1-2km. Those staying beyond 2km may not even have a chance to ballot. Parents staying within 1km may not need to ballot at all. As the value approaches 0.78, chance of balloting at this distance is actually very high.
0.79-1.00: (Red) Risk of balloting only for those staying within 1km. Anyone staying beyond 1km may not even get a chance to ballot at all.
