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 40 places in each school for Phases 2B and 2C (20 places each). At the end of Phase 2A(2), remaining places will be split equally between Phases 2B and 2C. If there are vacancies left at the end of Phase 2B, the remaining places will be carried forward to Phase 2C.

We will introduce a cap on Permanent Resident (PR) intake to prevent any concentration of PR children in our primary schools. The cap is 25%-30% of the school's planned P1 intake and will be applied in Phases 2C and 2C Supplementary only. Only a few schools will be affected. Learn about it.

The maximum number of vacancies available to PRs in Phases 2C and 2C Supplementary in the few affected schools will be displayed on this page. This represents the total number of PRs that can be admitted in a particular phase, taking into account the number of PRs successfully admitted in earlier phases.

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.
