Vacancies and balloting updates for primary schools

Get the latest updates for school vacancies and balloting information during the Primary 1 (P1) Registration Exercise.

School vacancies

To ensure continued open access to all schools in later phases, we are reserving 20 places in each primary school in Phase 2B and 40 places in each primary school in Phase 2C. This means a total of 60 places reserved places will be set aside in all schools at the start of the P1 Registration Exercise.

In addition to these reserved places, one-third of any remaining vacancies at the end of Phase 2A will be allocated to Phase 2B, and two-thirds to Phase 2C.

A cap on the intake of Permanent Resident (PR) children will be applied in Phases 2C and 2C Supplementary in some schools, to prevent concentration of PR children in our primary schools. Learn about it.

Check for vacancies in your preferred schools during the P1 Registration Exercise. We will display the final balloting status of all schools at the end of each registration phase.
