Phase 2C - Winning the school lottery

by Carrie Tan, posted on Aug 3, 2017

Primary 1 Registration Exercise Phase 2C

 

85 schools conducted a ballot yesterday to decide who would be given a spot in their school for those who applied under Phase 2C of the Primary 1 Registration Exercise. Phase 2C is for those without familial connections – such as a sibling or a parent who is an alumnus – with the school. Of these 85 schools, 72 schools were conducting ballots of Singapore Citizens (SC) [Refer to Figure 1] and 13 of them were conducting ballots for Permanent Residents (PR) [Refer to Figure 2]

Parents go through this nail-biting exercise with eyes wide open. The Ministry of Education (MOE) provides a daily update on the number of registrants for that particular phase on their website and for a variety of reasons, whether be it convenience or the reputation of the school, parents are fully aware of the situation and can decide to continue pursuing their school or choice, even if it means that they may not get lucky on the day of the ballot.

For PRs, their turn to ballot comes after all SCs are taken into account. It will make sense then, for them to apply to schools that have fewer applicants than vacancies. 

For those applying under Phase 2C next year, use the data from the 2017 registration exercise below, to draw out your plans. Consider what you will do if placed in the same situation. For example:

- What sort of chances will you take? i.e. 70% chance to enter a school like Tech Ghee Primary School in Ang Mo Kio, or 25% chance for Northland Primary School in Yishun.

- What are your Plan B Schools?

- What priority will you be given if the Plan B School has to decide your application base on a balloting exercise during Phase 2C Supplementary exercise? i.e Are you within 1km of that school? 

We hope this information will be useful to you. Good luck and all the best towards winning this first lottery for your child. Trust us. Most schools use similar lottery ball pickers.
