SINGAPORE - Four oversubscribed primary schools will hold a ballot for places on Thursday. It will be the first time since 1995 that this has been seen at the early 2A2 registration phase, which caters for children whose parents or siblings are former students of the school.
When registration for this phase closed on Tuesday, CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls' School in Ang Mo Kio had 24 children vying for 14 spots, while Henry Park Primary in Bukit Timah had 59 children applying for 46 vacancies.
At Radin Mas Primary in Bukit Merah, 67 children applied for 60 places, and Nan Hua Primary in Clementi had 55 children competing for 42 spots.
All four will conduct a ballot for children staying outside a 2km radius of these schools.
