eMAP Boarding Schools Application Portal Is Online Once Again (Nov 2019)

School children in classroom taking exam

The infamous electronic platform for enrolling Form One boarding places is back online in time for 2020 applications.

The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education will be running an electronic platform for enrolling Form One boarding places for 2020. Parents and guardians who wish to send their children to boarding schools are advised to start applying through the platform with effect from Monday 4 November 2019 up to Tuesday 31 December 2019

An applicant who has been offered a place at one school will not be eligible to apply or be considered for a place at any other school unless the offer is declined. Successful applicants will be notified through a short message service (SMS) by the respective school heads. Parents and guardians are however advised that there are limited boarding places.


The application portal will be open until the end of the year (31 December).

In previous years, the application portal has been a nightmare to use with parents having to wake up in the dead of the night just to access the portal. Hopefully, that won’t be the case this time around.

  1. eMap is good for convenience however I think it should allow for schools to select on more than student bio data and results. There is more that makes a good student and the system should have ways of capturing that and allowing schools to have their own selection metrics incl. sports leadership etc. We choose schools for different reasons and I would want a school that resonates with my values and what I expect for my child .

    1. I hope this detail helps ( Available under terms and conditions of the System which you agreed to when you were creating the account)
      Pending – application still under consideration
      Accepted – you have been offered a place
      Processed – once a particular school has accepted your Child, all the other outstanding schools’ statuses will automatically be changed to processed
      Rejected – your application was unsuccessful

  2. its a nightmare to log in the portal kindly assist by ensuring that the system is functioning properly and up to speed

  3. Sorry i want to deregister and start again the choice of the schools my son does not like them. How do i start all over again.

  4. Apart from the recipient school head sending a message to a parent,how else can a parent find out if the application has been received by the school.

  5. How do i even cancel the school i had picked for another. This whole system isn’t user friendly. I should be allowed to withdraw at an application at any given time.

  6. if i apply for a boarding school and cannot afford and to want to switch to a day school will it be possible,or the child cannot get the place at any other school.
