Results of Primary One discretionary places to be released on Monday

     The results of Primary One discretionary places for September 2010 will be released next Monday (November 23) by all government and aided primary schools.
     "There are 41,554 children applying for discretionary places in government and aided primary schools this year, of whom 20,461 will be offered a place in these schools," an Education Bureau spokesman said today (November 20). "A total of 8,818 are applicants with sibling(s) studying or with parent(s) working in the schools that they have applied to, whereas the remaining 11,643 are selected according to the Points System."

     Parents are reminded to bring the parent's copy of the Application Form for Primary One Admission and check the results of their application between 9am and 5pm on Monday (November 23) or Tuesday (November 24) at the school to which they have applied.

     Registration of successful applicants should be made on Wednesday or Thursday (November 25 and 26) during school hours.

     Parents whose children have been offered a Primary One place are advised to note carefully the registration procedures and requirements of individual schools, such as bringing the parent's copy of the Application Form for Primary One Admission and the number of photographs required for registration purposes.

     "Parents who cannot register within the specified period should notify the responsible person of the school in advance to make alternative arrangements. Otherwise, they will be deemed to have given up their discretionary place," the spokesman said.

     Under the Primary One Admission System, each government or aided primary school may make use of about 50% of its total Primary One places as discretionary places.  The remaining 50% will be reserved for Central Allocation at a later stage.

     "Parents of the applicants who failed to secure a discretionary place or who only opted for Central Allocation will be invited by letter from the Education Bureau in mid- January 2010 to make choices of schools for Central Allocation at a designated Central Allocation Centre on January 23 or 24.  Primary One places will then be allocated to these children in Central Allocation," the spokesman said.

     "Parents should note that once their children have been allocated a Primary One place, they cannot take part in the Primary One Admission System again in future," he said.
