The results of the central allocation of Primary One places for the school year that starts in September will be released tomorrow. A total of 20,978 children had registered and 16,596, or 80 per cent, of them were allocated to one of the schools of their first three choices, a spokesman for the Education Bureau said. 'Taking into account the discretionary places ... the overall satisfaction rate is about 90 per cent,' the spokesman said.
