P1 registration 2020: Things to know
  • Eligibility

Children born between 2 January 2013 and 1 January 2014 (both dates inclusive), must be registered at this year’s P1 Registration Exercise for admission to P1 in January 2020.

  • Where

Parents are required to proceed to their school of choice during the eligible phase.

  • Timings

Registration will be conducted between 8.00 am – 11.00 am. and from 2.30 pm – 4.30 pm on each scheduled registration day (Monday-Friday). Parents must produce the originals of each required document at the time of registration.

  • Do note

The address used in the Primary 1 Registration Exercise should be the parents’ official residential address, which is specified in their NRICs. This is very important, as it is the address which will determine the home-school distance category, a chief factor and priority in school admissions.

  • Information for International students

For international students, registration is at Phase 3, after all SCs and SPRs have been allocated a place under the earlier phases of the P1 registration exercise. International students will be required to undergo a two-step process:

Step 1

Submit an online ‘indication of interest’ form via the MOE P1 website, from 4 to 10 June 2019.

Step 2

International students who have completed Step 1, and are notified in October 2019 by MOE that they can be offered a P1 place in a school, must register in person at the designated schools during Phase 3 of the 2019 P1 registration exercise in late October 2019.

International students who do not submit the ‘indication of interest’ form to MOE by 10 June 2019 will not be able to register during Phase 3 of the P1 registration exercise.
