SINGAPORE - Fewer primary schools will be drawing lots to allocate places for the latest registration stage this week. A total of 86 schools, down from 91 last year, will have to conduct a ballot on Wednesday for children who applied in Phase 2C.
Phase 2C is for children with no ties to their schools of choice.
The earlier phases are for children with siblings who are current or former pupils or have parents who are alumni or school volunteers, have church or clan associations, or are grassroots leaders.
Some of the schools which require a ballot are Ai Tong School in Bishan, where 49 children had signed up for 31 places, and Mee Toh School in Punggol, which had 123 children registering for 58 spots.
