we got 30+ with 4 chances.
u want to see if there is a pattern?
u got 5 chances rite? wat's your no?
hope urs is a good no! =)
u can find the number of chances in the letter sent to u last time, can be 1/2/4 or even more..
2 chances for 1st timer, and 2 more if parents staying near the bto etc...
i think bukit panjang bto coming soon too! =)
My quene is 50+. I had two chances. I had bad quene number for sk but I thin I not intended to take it le since I had better quene in Woodland. How about urself? Do you got what bus services to woodland and how many bus stop to woodland mrt.
I'm new.. I've also applied straits vista but my que no is 563 which far far exceeded the flats supply... so sad leh..
I always wanted woodlands flats, if really can't get the flats We have to buy re-sale flat le..
Yan Teng, according to what I know, the number of applicants HDB will call up is actually twice the number of units available (I think they just want to play safe in case others give up their chances) and yours is within 664 (332 4-room units). You mind lower floors ones?
kiang, not to dampen your mood but don't pin too much hopes on your appeal..
balloting is all about luck and may have little or nothing to do with chances. it would seem the more chances you have, the higher the opportunity to get a good queue number but apparently, it may not be necessary..
my case is also a very good example..i got 7 chances for a particular BTO project and in the end, i ended up getting a queue number of 600+ out of 700+ flat units..someone in the same project who has 2 chances actually got a 30+ number..
bottomline is, it really depends on LUCK!
so, even if your appeal is succesful, the earlier numbers would have already been assigned to other couples and you will still need to wait till the first round of selection is over..
One of my friends applied for a recent BTO. She was in the same situation as mine - 2 chances given, 1st timer. However, her queue was far worse than mine (exceeded 2x the units available). And here, IL and I shared similar backgrounds but she has a great Q number!
Furthermore, we will not know how we actually benefit from the number of chances allocated to us as well. It all boils down to luck.
I'm not pinning high hopes on able to get an unit because of the stricter rules imposed to the 1st timers, thus the uptake of units might be higher as compared to the previous BTOs.
In my case (with Q: 475 out of 332 units), I rather get a poorer number because I'm queuing here nor there. Who knows by my turn, the units left are not to my acceptance and I'm force to accept just because I didn't want to be penalised. I just feel that the new rules can be a tad more flexible.
