Eight schools had more than half their places filled when Phase 1 of the Primary 1 registration exercise ended yesterday - five fewer schools than last year.

However, it does not mean that parents seeking their desired school are going to find their task any easier in the later phases.

Going by last year's demand, at least three primary schools look like they might face a ballot at the later Phase 2A2, thanks to the introduction of a new rule that reserves 40 places for children with no ties to the schools.

These are CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls' School, Red Swastika School and Henry Park Primary.
