How many vacancy in each phase?
Every school starts with a number of vacancy, with a minimal number of vacancy reserved for the following 2 phases:
- Phase 2B reserve 20
- Phase 2C reserve 40
Let’s use an example.
Anderson Primary School have 210 vacancy in 2021. NOTE: We merge 2A(1) and 2A(2) data since 2021 is still on the old registration framework.
Therefore, Phase 1 will have:
210 - 20 - 40 = 150
This vacancy of 150 will be available to Phase 1. With 86 places taken up in Phase 1, the remaining vacancy will be:
150 - 86 = 64
This remaining vacancy of 64 will be available to Phase 2A. With 51 places taken up in Phase 2A, the remaining vacancy will be:
64 - 51 = 13
This remaining vacancy of 13 will split between the next 2 phases – 1/3 to 2B and 2/3 to 2C (round up the number for 2B).
1/3 x 13 = 5 (2B, rounded up)
13 - 5 = 8 (2C)
Adding to the vacancy reserved in the beginning, Phase 2B will have:
20 + 5 = 25
In 2021, Phase 2B took up 22 places, so
25 - 22 = 3. The remaining 3 vacancy will overflow to 2C. Therefore Phase 2C will have:
40 + 8 + 3 = 51
That is theoretically how it works.
