Would you use an address that you do not stay in, just to get priority in P1 registration?

LC9 - I’m in the exact situation as you - MOE gave me a different reply. Basically said (1) register using docs showing ownership of property (2) show TA end date - must be before commencement of school year (3) undertake to change address in IC by commencement of school year

Pls note the address you use for P1 enrollment will be the address MOE start sending all info & correspondence e.g. for Orientation, for reporting to school. If u’re using condo (ownership address), any correspondence will be sent to that address which might be a headache to co-ordinate & u might miss timeline. Just highlight possible problem.

Which is what I said, and what I understand to be the case, but LC9 has a different answer :shrug:

Hi chanlm, may i know when did you ask MOE? Did you email or call? And when is your school registration?

Strange and worrying that they are giving 2 different answers here. But the school and MOE gave me the same response, which is use the NRIC address only.

Estéema, thanks for highlighting that.

LC9, sorry for late reply as I hadn't logged on until now. I emailed MOE in March this year, and school registration is in July this year.

Yes it is strange - maybe you try to email MOE again?

Hi
Anyone in the situation where both parents (married) have different addresses in the nric? (Due to home ownership arrangements with respective parents)

In this case whose registered address will be used to determine the distance- based proximity?

DD going under phase 2A(1)

Father’s IC address is used by default. But be prepared they will question you for a valid reason why the 2 addresses.

Unless :

1. Divorce (in process)
2. One parent hv proof of overseas LT assignment
3. Both parents in Spore & hv diff address not valid even with several properties, as a couple must establish matrimonial home with kids in one address. I own more than one property, but that is documented in legal ownership, not my i/c.

I’ve come across school P asks parents to reflect address of both parents as same or withdraw, as MOE system flag this out. Better call MOE or talk to P to verify again.

Be careful!
