Called Maris Stella. Oversubscribed for SC <1 km.
Seems like Bidadari is starting to take effect
Kinda too early for the Bidadari effect leh. Most sites wouldn't be ready until 2021.

Which also means Maris is going to get even more popular in future :yikes:
after start P1, then within 2 years TOP still can mah. so 2021 okok.
Next year, it will burst!

Bidadari is already ready folks. Not fully sure. But people can sign some docs to apply this year as long as hdb cert will be issued this year.

When I mean ready... I mean READY... as in kids must be 6yo.
Bidadari project was launched in 2016 / 2017. Majority of the kids that will be moving into the estate would still be swimming then. There may be a handful of kids ready for school but it shouldn't dramatically affect Maris' dynamics. The best way to check is to cross-reference Cedar Primary (still low numbers). Therefore, I would say it's not the Bidadari effect affecting Maris at the moment.

But the Bidadari effect will come... soon.

If applicants exactly same number as vacancies, no ballot. If the last applicant is a set of twins/triplets/quadruplets etc, also no ballot.

If even one more applicant than vacancies, ballot. It’s very clear cut. No leeway for the school to close one eye cos they have to answer to MOE.
