There is no such percentage reserved.

U need to calculate like this: Total X number of vacancies per school.

Minus 20 seats reserved for 2C. Minus another 20 seats reserved for 2B.

Minus Phase 1 seats taken up by Y number of kids with siblings already in the school.

Minus Z number taken up by 2A1.

The remainder will be for 2A2.

I doubt it will be oversubscribed.
MK cohort size is much smaller than the school’s P1 intake and not everyone in the batch would want to go to the affiliated primary school.

Neighborhood schools only. I have typed out the list of 12 primary schools for this year 2018 registration:

1. Blangah Rise Primary
2. Dazhong Primary
3. Farrer Park Primary
4. Frontier Primary
5. Northoaks Primary
6. Punggol Green Primary
7. Punggol View Primary
8. Riverside Primary
9. Sengkang Green Primary
10. Springdale Primary
11. West Spring Primary
12. Westwood Primary
How does this MK kindergarten ruling work ?

Suppose at N2 (4 year old), parents signed up a toddler, to study at MK kindergarten, X.

3 years later, after going througg N2, K1 and K2 (6 year old) graduation -
can this child then enrol into any of those 12 primary schools listed Above, or this child can only enrol into that one & only one affliated primary school, in which that MK kindergarten X is specifically affliated to ?

Only affiliated to that one primary school that is in the same campus/compound (co-located). It’s not a buffet of all 12 choices.

The K in MK refers to Kindergarten. MK only hold classes for K1 and K2.

This move for affiliation into government neighborhood schools...I see it as driving some demand into the chronically undersubscribed schools (eg Blangah Rise and Farrer Park). For the northeast, I believe they have the stance that there are plenty of other new neighborhood schools in the Punggol/Sengkang region to absorb these kids if balloted out.
Luckily, Nanyang kindergarten isn't inside the above list of 12 primary schools, affliated to MK.

imagine the crazy Frency :-
parents can queue / camp overnight just to enrol their (K1, K2 ) kids into Nanyang kindergarten, to enjoy affliation to Nanyang primary school under phase 2A2, if Nanyang kindergarten were to be inside this list of MK. Then, throwing all students inside phase 2A2 to ballot.

Let's hope Nanyang kindergarten will Never get to be inside this list of MK, forever.

20 kids per class. 2 sessions per day.
Number of classes vary from centre to centre.

Swapping sessions will depend on availability. You would have to check with MK Sengkang Green.
