Admission to Local Primary School

4 Replies



My ex-wife and I both agree that it is best for my daughter to live with me because my ex-wife is starting a family and she doesn't want our daughter to be left out in the process. I am thinking of settling her in a local primary school instead of international schools because I want her to be grounded in the culture and language of Singapore. My question is what are the chances that she'll be able to get a slot? I do understand that foreigners are at the bottom of the list. Am I just wishful thinking that we would be able to get a spot? I hope you can share your experiences with me. Thank you.

You will probably get a spot but be prepared that the location will be as far as possible.

MOE is changing the policy for Phase 3 admission this year that's why most parents have to wait until mid December to get a confirmed spot because of oversubsciption.
