Parents hoping to clinch a spot for their six-year-olds in three of the most popular primary schools here may need to face a ballot next week, at an earlier stage of the Primary 1 registration exercise than in previous years.

These schools are CHIJ St Nicholas Girls' School, Henry Park Primary and Nan Hua Primary.

A total of 25 schools were left with fewer than half their vacancies - down from 27 last year - after Phase 2A1 ended yesterday.

This phase is for children whose parents had joined the school alumni association at least one year ago.
