Pardon me but I dont really know how to assess probability using the historical charts :sweat: ... my girl is registering this yr and I can only go for 2C. Im <1km from Holy Innocents and <2km from CHIJOLN. It seens like I may have higher chances at CHIJ, but im <2km. My friend said <1km has higher chance but HI is more popular. I like the focus on chinese in HI.

And since we can do online registration this year, is there any benefit to still go down to the school to register?

Announcement. One Map School Query function is now available via smartphone app. Now u can check home-school distance using your hand phone. Convenient.

I just realized this when I checked MOE’s P1 registration page today: https://www.moe.gov.sg/admissions/prima ... dress-used

This is the reference link: https://www.kiasuparents.com/kiasu/article/hougang/

HIPS is indeed more popular. It’s only the recent 2-3 years less popular because the school has been at a holding site far away (ITE AMK). But it will be back to the original site in Dec 2018. So....I predict it will get popular again in this year’s registration. See whether you want to take the chance. You can go down to the holding site school on registration day to check the numbers before you register.

CHIJOLN is less popular and you will probably have a chance to enter without balloting. BUT if it happens that balloting is required for your distance this year, then prepare a backup school for phase 2C(S).

Zac's mum analysis is good. :)

To add on:

If these are the two schools you chose, then monitor the take up rate for each phases. Going down to register will allow you to see the actual take up in real time.

Historically if TUR for HI is above 40% for phase 1 or by phase 2b above 85%, then balloting within 1km could be possible. Even if a balloting is needed the odds is around 1.3 applicant per slot.

So ask yourself about your risk profile. Can bear the balloting risk? Or need a confirm place? OLN looks safer. For those who can bear with the risk, since it's within 1km, apply HI. If you cannot bear with the risk, you need to standby at HI on the last day and if the places is full, decide if you want to go to your 2nd choice.

I prefer to take leave on the last day and make sure I got the place rather than wait for the letter to come.

quite a few primary schools had merged, perhaps at the same time expand intake

https://www.moe.gov.sg/admissions/prima ... ng-schools


another example

Canossa convent primary (Salim road) expand intake, turn co-ed from an "All girls" school, start to take in boys now, also expand intake.

As for computerised balloting taking place at MOE premises, parents no need to go down to individual school for manual balloting anymore, so is less nerve wrecking. Just wait at home, for MOE to inform parents news of the computerised balloting outcome, via sms : in or out !

if out (unlucky balloting), just move onto the next Phase of P1 registration.

Vacancies, per school, are out !

https://www.moe.gov.sg/admissions/prima ... /vacancies

P1 registration Phase 1 officially start wef tomorrow, Thursday (28 June 2018)

if u see an increase by 30 : means that school increased by 1 more additional new class, because for P1 : 30 pupils, per class

Pei Chun case :-
this year, they cut one class, making Phase 2C less than 1 km balloting, harder to get in
