SINGAPORE - Fewer schools this year may have to conduct balloting for the next stage of Primary 1 registration, Phase 2B, which starts on Monday.
Going by last year's demand, 11 primary schools may need to do so for Phase 2B, which is for children whose parents volunteer at the school, are active grassroots leaders or have church or clan associations.
