That’s true. Saw in the “transfer primary school” thread that some parents are trying to transfer their kids out to less competitive schools, after X painful years there discovering that their child is not surviving well in that environment.
Yes. A colleague of mine had a kid in one of these schools and she suffered a lot in Primary 1. Then parents transferred kid to a less popular mission school in early Primary 2 and that kid topped the cohort by end of Primary 2!!! 😉 #truestory

Thanks for the inputs, we don't know the trends well as we just came to SG a couple of years ago. Am wondering why NY, Raffles Girls and HPPS are so much popular than the rest in Bukit Timah. I am sure they are good, just curious in which areas they are good.
These 3 are GEP centres. With the top 1% of national cohorts in their schools mean higher chance of getting more high scorers at PSLE. Many parents LIKE to think that sending kids to these schools may increase the chance of a high PSLE score. :rotflmao: But it is NOT TRUE lah..

What is true though... competition within the school is stiff.. so VERY hard to win awards, or get a chance to represent the school...

If you send a child who is weak academically to such schools, the kid will just go straight to the bottom of the cohort and when streaming comes, the kid will be streamed into the weakest class too.

If your child is strong academically, the child will be strong no matter which school she is.
Fully agreed with you.

Hi there, may I know if the schools provides updates on Phase 2C registration days? For example number of vacancies vs number of applicants (under 1 km, 1-2 km, etc)? Thank you.

Depends on school.
Some schools put on white board. Some schools you have to ask. Other schools won’t tell you.
