Chances of getting in NYPS within 1KM w/o PV

Does anyone here know the chances of getting into NYPS w/o PV if we live within 1 km distance from the school, it seems balloting still required. My girl is born in 2008, called the school and they said PV has already closed 🙁

The New Paper

Hi I’m a reporter with The New Paper and was wondering if you knew anyone who quit high flying jobs or took a year long leave of absence to help their child with their PSLE this year? Please email me at [email protected]

Hi f11499, How is your

Hi f11499,

How is your interview with Nan Yang? What is the outcome? Is your child born in 2006?


Hi Parents,

I have been selected to go for the NPYS PV interview. Just wondering whether anyone can give me any good tip of doing well in the interview?

Thanks in advance


How to wirte a PV application?

Hi, All,

I have a K1 girl preparing to pick up a primary school. I was told that a good PV application would be necessary and of course some less than 1KM residence is also required. Is there any format which I can follow or some good suggestions even better? – john

How stressful it is to study at NYPS?

Hello to all Mums and Dads,

Any of you have kids already in NYPS? I would like to know how stressful it is studying @ NYPS. While I hope to put my boy in a good school, I’m also worried that he cannot cope. I do not want to make a wrong decision in either way.

Would Nanyang be very stressful?


I have 2 boys and wondering whether to place them in NYPS (if possible at all) because it seems such a good school.  Is it a very stressful school to be in, and are teachers very good?  Do the teachers assume that all the pupils attend enrichment classes?  Must the child be very smart in order to survive in the school?  But how to assess whether the child is ‘smart enough’? 

Nanyang or De Salle

Nope, we decided to register her in De La Salle under P2C as for this year there are >100 seats available and since i am within 1 KM i hope my girl could get in without me going thru the "Havoc" balloting process. But I must say, it is not an easy decision. Heard so much good comments about Nanyang but distance is really a concerns to us.

"Touch Wood", if can’t get in to DLS then i will just register her under P2C of any available schools in CCK area and put her under NanYang’s WaitList for transfer.



Did your child get into Nanyang?


Just wondering, did you managed to get your child into Nanyang Primary under Phase 2C, within 1km?



Nanyang or De La Salle

happened to my son too…he got to wake up @ 5.30am, have simple breakfast and take school bus @ 6am.  reaches home around 2.30pm.  take lunch, shower, do homework and take a nap.  And he sleeps @ 10pm.  Well, its a matter of getting used to it.  Not easy getting a place in NYPS…

Nanyang or De Salle,

Hi Mummyof3gals, I can testify to that. It is really tough having to wake up at 545 am and leaving home by 630 to reach my son’s sec school on time. We were so used to the luxury of waking up at 630 and leaving home by 7 for the last 6 years as he was in a nearby neighbourhood school then… We are more selective about sec schools and that’s why he’s in a school which is a distance away. Now we have one more girl taking her PSLE this year and hopefully she will enter a sec school that is close to her brother’s and then we may relocate to somewhere nearby their save time and energy…

Nanyang or De La Salle

Hi chiclil,

Thanks for the info. In my opinion to get READY by 6:15 is really no joke. I guess i will try De La Salle or move down to Bukit Timah area should i decide to enrol her in Nanyang.

Nanyang or De La Salle


I have the same concern as you last year when I registered. I am staying 1 block away from De La Salle. Now my gal takes the school bus at 6.15 am in the morning , reaches home at 2.30 pm.

It seems she is enjoying school and a gal who does not usually sleeps early will automatically adjust her sleeping habit to knock out at 8.30 – 9 pm.

She has gotta used to school bus too so she will just doze off in the bus and once she reach the bus driver will wake them up.

School work for now seems ok because so far no home work at all.


Nanyang or De La Salle

My elder girl is 6, we are staying within 1km from De La Salle (CCK –  definitely kena  balloting ) at the same time offered at place in Nanyang Primary, what will be your choice if you are me !!!! My main concern is the travelling time for my poor girl !!! Need some experience advise badly.

Nanyang Pri

Tks for yr reply, Chief Kiasu. Acc to NYPS balloting data, all places went to within 1km only w/o balloting. Though we have a good chance to get into the sch,  we expect balloting as there seemed to be lesser places at the popular schools left this yr for 2C despite lesser 2002 babies. We are afraid to be the unlucky ones that have to go to 2C supplementary, which in general are really unpopular schools… just being too worried and kiasu 

Will keep our fingers crossed till next week….

Nanyang Primary

Nanyang is definitely out for anyone greater than 2km to try to get in at Phase 2C.  The average TUR is 2% higher at Phase 2B than last year, and most of that comes from Phase 2B where the number of applicants increased by 7 percentage points.  Last year in Phase 2C, there was a cut-off at less than 1km, which means that everyone within the hot zone did get in without balloting.  With the increase in average TUR by Phase 2C of 2%, there is likely balloting.  Note that this is only a technical analysis, and we do not have numbers beyond last year’s to support this either.  There was balloting in Phase 2C in 2006 for less than 1km, but we do not know what the TUR in Phase 2C was like at that time.

Since you are less than 1km, you already have a much greater chance to get in Nanyang than a lot of others coming in at Phase 2C.  So unless you have a backup school which you are more confident in getting (without balloting), I think you should just go for Nanyang.  At worst, you have to ballot with others in the less than 1km zone.  For you, it doesn’t matter which day you register, unless you are looking for some good fengshui day, or if you have another school in mind that you want to check out first before deciding on Nanyang.

Phase 2C


I am looking forward to ChiefKiasu’s advice on your question, whether to wait for 2nd or 3rd day because I am within 1km to both De La Salle & South View, to see which sch has more probability although I prefer De La Salle due to affialiation to SJI, else another headache at P6.

2C Phase

Hi Chief Kaisu,

We have been nervously waiting for 2C at Nanyang Pri Sch. Now that the vancancy is 54 places. Pls adv your ‘prediction’ if there would be balloting for this phase? NYPS is the only sch that is within 1 km for us and we were unfortunately rejected by the school to be a PV 2 yrs ago:-(.  In this phase, pls adv best strategy to take… ie should one wait till 2nd or last day of reg to gauge how many places left in order to go for sch with best chance to get in?

Thanks for yr time.
