Very generous of you to share. Thank you!

I like that you have listed the primary schools by alphabetical order. It’s much easier to find a school this way! :udaman:
I have added all the ballot history since 2009 :boogie:

Now also categorize by region, so easier to see and compare in 1 page eg. https://just2me.com/sgprimary/2010/yishun/

Hi, does the statistics include distance? Like for eg for St Andrews Junior, there were 64 applied but only 48 got in. Does the 64 include applicants 1-2km and beyond 2km?

Hi, I noticed that for Phase 2B, the number of applied exceed taken for many schools. Means need to ballot? it is different from the statistics here. Really need the historical statistics for Phase 2B :salute:

Easier if you just name the school that you are considering for P2B

I am guessing that his data is collated from whatever statistics that are published on MOE’s website during the registration period. He managed to enter & save the data into his spreadsheet before MOE erased the info when each registration phase is over.

Such information would be the total number of applicants (all distances) for the X number of vacancies.

It is quite impossible for him to have the distance breakdown for every single school in SG. Unless he is there in person monitoring the office of every single school in SG at closing time on the final day.

And even if he was there, not even all the schools were willing to release the distance breakdown.

Whatever distance breakdown you hear of, are only for those tiny handful of schools as reported by some generous KSP members.

Yes, it is not easy to compile that stats. Just remember that parents are free to quit and register for another school in a subsequent phase. The Phases are deviously complex. What is reported in Kiasuparents.com is the ground level scrimmage at a given time, which could be different after that data is passed through several rounds of summaries!

Hi, I’m considering Haig Girls School. From the statistic for Phase 2C, it’s not that popular. So i’m wondering whether it needs ballot in 2B.

You lost me there.

If the statistic shows that it is not popular in Phase 2C, why would it to ballot at Phase 2B, an earlier phase? :scratchhead:

haha, that’s also my question, so I asked why the number “apply” exceed “taken” in 2B for many school in his table. Anyway, how is the chance to get in HGS in 2B?

I went to the 2018 registration thread to check 2B for you. Definitely no balloting for Haig Girls in 2B. Not sure where his stats for applicants > seats taken came from. Human error?

I think the popularity of Haig Girls only shows up in 2C, where many PRs will apply. Or have they upped their game since then and started doing PV in large masses for 2B?? Perhaps you have some insights.
