SINGAPORE: Nearly half of all primary schools in Singapore are oversubscribed in Phase 2C, with most of them set to conduct balloting, according to data from the Ministry of Education on Friday (Aug 5).

Phase 2C is considered the most competitive phase and is open to all children with no prior connection to their school of choice.

Registration for Phase 2C opened at 9am on Jul 27 and closed at 4.30pm on Jul 29, with the data on the oversubscribed schools released on Friday evening.

Of the 181 primary schools in Singapore, 88 received more applications than they had spaces, the data showed.

Princess Elizabeth Primary School in Bukit Batok was the most oversubscribed school in this phase, receiving five times as many applicants as they had vacancies.
