The next step to submit your child’s application at the selected school

Once the online application is complete, you are required to submit the supporting documentation at the government school that you have applied for your child within the stipulated time.

For the 2025/26 academic year, this process may be done from 2 May 2024 to 30 June 2024. Note that different schools may have slightly different requirements, so you may use this checklist as a general guideline:

  1. Child’s birth certificate (Original and Copy)
  2. Parents/ Guardians’ Identification Card (Original and Copy)
  3. Parents/ Guardians’ Marriage Certificate OR Divorce Certificate OR Custodial Documents (if applicable) (Original and Copy)
  4. The latest utility bills from your current address (Electricity, water, phone, Astro) and rental agreement (copies)
  5. Child’s vaccine card (Kad Imunisasi kanak-kanak) (copy)
  6. Health documents / OKU documents (if applicable)

Important note: This application process is not guarantee of placement, as this depends on the availability of slots at the school. Parents may check if their child has been accepted at the school of their choice from 1 October to 31 October 2024 at idme.moe.gov.my. Appeals may also be done through the website during this period, and the updated status can be checked beginning 1 December 2024.
