Are you on the waiting list? The best you can do is to talk to the school's principal in the hope that some parents will pull their children out before the start of P1. You should encourage your child to do well in P1 and P2 in the alternative school and try for a transfer in P3. I believe quite a number of parents go through that path.

I was told good chance to transfer at P3

It's simple Maths. P1 & P2 30 kids in a class. P3 these kids will be re-group into 40 in class.

assuming 10 classes in P1 (300 kids)
They will be regroup into 8 classes in P3 (300 existing kids +20 extra vacancies)

Should a vacancy arises before P3, I heard priority usually given to PVs who were balloted out though

I don't think at P3 would be re-group to 40 per class since the govt reduce the class size to 30 and schs have been adhering to this.

I don't think sch prinicpal would entertain parents on waiting list. Usually the admin staff would say no one pull out. The sch is also tight lipped on selection criteria in case there is vacancy. Of course, I think the PV would get it first than those ballot out at 2C.

Oh really, I heard from my friends who are teachers, says from P3 onwards, the class remains at 40 students.

Only P1 and P2 - 30 students!

I'm certain about the re-grouping into 40 per class from P3 :wink:

Unless different school operates differently?

for GEP schools, P4 onwards only gifted students?

what about others not in gifted programme? can still continue in that school, just bigger class size of 40?

Hi Sleep ,

what i understand ,Yes for non- GEP students , they still can continue in that school But top fews class 40+ students in the class ( P4 ) . :roll:

the high achievers are already doing well, no much for additional help". :roll: :roll:

At DS1 school, the principal repeatedly emphasised that this measure is mainly targetted at helping those potential EM3 pupils ( wearker ) who are strong in one or two subjects. I felt that the school is putting a lot of efforts in helping this group of pupils. :lol: :lol:

Hmm... I've parents telling me how they were on the waiting list and managed to get into good schools like Gongshan when others dropped out, even though they were not PVs. So it all amounts to luck, I suppose.
