For those registering for 2009 intake, wish you all the best.

Anyone who is targetting Schools (Redhill Area) or Fairfield perhaps can share some updates as i'm preparing for 2010 intake.

I think Ai Tong balloting likely to take place in 1-2km (last year there were no balloting in phase 2B, they have enough places for applicants within 1-2km, all applicants outside 2km were rejected).

Nanyang not likely to have ballot in phase 2B, there are still 209 places left. My colleague is a PV in NY and she mentioned that this year they only take in 40 PVs and most of them stay outside 2km.

I think Rivervale will also have a high chance of ballot <1km or 1-2km in phase 2B. Even though they are not likely to have applicants under phase 2A, but the remaining places of 77 total for phase 2B and 2C is really very little.

Predictions for 2008 P1 Registration

Postby caroline3sg » Wed Jul 02, 2008 11:28 am

Hi
Can anyone comment on my chances for 2C
1) De La Salle
2) South View

I am within 1km of both sch. While I understand that De La Salle has affialiation (which is my first choice), I have a slimmer chance due to higher ratio (ie no. of applicants divide by vacancies). Both have ballot within 1km.

PS. I can even walk to De La Salle (10 min) but has to take feeder to South View.

Thank you

All 3 schs have ballot within 1km. Average about 2 applicants eyeing for 1 seat.

Yes... Ai Tong is possibly balloting in the 1-2km, but due to the increase in uptake for Phase 1 this year and the fact that in 2006, there was balloting for <1km, I am more inclined to think that this year might be more competitive than last year.

The uptake for Nangyang in Phase 1 this year is similar to that of last year, so it all depends on whether there is any significant change in the take up rate in Phase 2A. I still think there would be balloting in Phase 2B for Nanyang... but you could be right. It is a tough call.

Rivervale has the highest take-up rate in Phase 1 in the whole of Singapore, so there will definitely be balloting in Phase 2C and possibly Phase 2B. And for the matter, schools such as Bukit Panjang, Chongzheng, Woodgrove and Compassvale are very likely to require balloting <1km in Phase 2C. The demand for these schools is very high this year.

River Valley - likely to ballot in Phase 2C, possibly 1-2km
Radin Mas - likely to ballot in Phase 2C, possibly 1-2km
Zhangde - small 6% increase in Phase 1 TUR, possible ballot in Phase 2C, >2km
Gan Eng Seng - unlikely to have any ballot situation this year
