We think we should not waste a chance in 2B - it feels like we should try before it goes into the ocean of 2C.Davischew wrote: ↑Mon Nov 04, 2019 7:45 amZero chance in both.

We are PR and stay within 1km of CHIJ Toa Payoh and are thinking to apply under P2B. If fail in this phase, should we try again in P2C?
Other option is within 1km of Pei Chun but that will be under P2C.
Does anyone know how do PRs fare in these phases?
Also, read somewhere that we should at least shortlist 3 schools in case of worst case scenario.
For phase 2B, there are three main scenarios:
1. Religious/clan affiliation.
Assuming you are Catholic and going under religious affiliation , you are probably only restricted to Catholic schools.
A lot of the clan schools are super competitive and unlikely to have spots for PR.
2. Parent volunteer
Are you prepared to volunteer at however number of schools you would like to enrol your child in?
3. Grassroots volunteer
The hours required may be longer than being a parent volunteer at one school and there is a restriction to the schools where your home is.
Please note that at any one time, you can only register for a single school at any phase.
If the chances are not looking good, you will have to withdraw from that school before registering at another school under phase 2B school.
