Newbie mum needing advice regarding p1 enrolment

Postby yuppybb » Wed Sep 15, 2010 11:25 am

hey mums/dads

need some advice here. M eyeing on a P1 school which is about 3 km from my house. anyone has any idea if there is a thread in this forum that shares experiences of those who applied for school that are out of 2km range and how high are the chances? hhmmm sorry ar..i cant seem to find it anywhere, perhaps it has been discussed before so i can gain some insight from their post.

heaps of thanks.

It really depends on how popular the school is. If it's an extremely popular school, your child might not get in even if you live next to it. On the other hand, if it is a not-so-popular school, then you could be living 5, 10km away and yet able to get into it.

Perhaps you want to tell us which school you're looking at and we can point you to the right thread?

Hi, :welcome:

Can only comment on HIPS as monitoring for a friend.

Phase 2B - good chance for those 1-2km. Beyond that, risk of balloting
Phase 2C - historically balloting for those within 1km.

thanks MMM for the feedback. :D

hmm thats risky in this case for me. so for phase 2C, does it mean more than 2 km no chance to even smell balloting?

Why is enrolment for P1 so painful in singapore...hahah
