central allocation ca
Central Allocation CA

If you signed the undertaking declaration of DSS schools, please also follow the procedure to join this allocation.

central allocation ca1
Central Allocation (CA)
  • After the deduction of repeater and discretionary places, the remaining places in a secondary school are used for CA:
  • About 10% for unrestricted school choices (choose one to three schools from any school nets)
  • Remaining 90%for restricted school choices (choose a maximum of 30 schools in the school net to which a student belongs)
example on calculation of s1 places
Example on Calculation of S1 Places

# While 2 repeater places will be reserved per class at S1 level, the maximum repetition rate at the whole school level should not exceed 5% of the total enrolment of the school

school nets
School Nets
  • In line with district administration boundaries, the whole territory is divided into 18 school nets
  • The school net to which a student belongs is determined by the physical location of the primary school the student attends (except those who have applied for cross-net allocation)
choices within school net
Choices within school net
  • To ensure all the nets have sufficient S1 places to meet the demand for CA, each school net comprises:
    • participating primary and secondary schools located in own district; and
    • secondary schools in other districts providing school places for the net

(secondary schools and school places from other districts may vary from year to year )

choice of schools form sample
Choice of Schools Form (Sample)

Part A - Unrestricted School Choices (Refer to the Handbook for Unrestricted School Choices, choose a maximum of 3 schools)

Part B - Restricted School Choices (Refer to the Secondary School List of the student’s own net, choose a maximum of 30 schools)

  • Should complete and submit theSecondary One Choice of Schools Form to EDB in early May through the primary school irrespective of whether application for DP has been made
  • CAN repeat the same school choice in both Part A and Part B if it is in the student’s own net
  • DO NOT repeat the choices in the same part
  • DO NOT choose only a few favourite schools in Part B. This will not increase the chance of the student being allocated to the school
