Yes, you can register your child at any school of your choice. However if there are more applications than vacancies in a specific phase and home-school distance category, balloting will be conducted. Find out more information on balloting.
You will be notified of the outcome of your registration on the date of result announcement, through Short Messaging System (SMS) and postal mail. Should you not receive your registration outcome by the end of result announcement day, you could contact the school directly the next working day to check on the results.

The new home address can be used provided that you are able to produce evidence from the relevant authority that you have committed to the purchase of this property. In addition, you have to sign a letter of undertaking to move into the new property within two years of the child's entry into Primary One (P1).
In the case of private property, you must produce a copy of the original Sales and Purchase Agreement for the school's verification. For the 2018 Primary One (P1) Registration Exercise, the date of commitment by the developer in the Vacant Possession Date (VPD) must not be later than 31 December 2020. In the case of Housing & Development Board (HDB) flat, the 'New Flat' printout from My HDBPage is required. For the 2018 Primary One (P1) Registration Exercise, the Delivery Possession Date (DPD) must not be later than 31 December 2020.
To retrieve the ‘New Flat’ printout from My HDBPage, you may perform the following steps:
1. Log in to My HDBPage
2. Select ‘My Flat’, followed by ‘Application Status’ and ‘New Flat’.
3. Print out the ‘New Flat’ page.
A child who has made use of the VPD or DPD home-school distance category priority to secure a place in a school is required to stay at the new address for at least 30 months starting from the time the family moves into the property. For example, if the child registers in 2018 and only moves into the new address in July 2020, the 30 months stay period starts from July 2020.
If your VPD or DPD falls slightly beyond 31 December 2020, you may approach MOE for assistance and we will assess your situation on a case-by-case basis.
A child who gains priority admission into a school through his/her distance category is required to reside at the address used for registration for at least 30 months from the commencement of the annual P1 Registration Exercise on 28 June 2018. If this condition is not met, MOE reserves the right to transfer the child to another school with vacancies, as the priority admission to the first school was based on the declared address used for registration.
