Hi. Haven't been logging in to ksp. Yes, only the top scorer will get the medal. But HD is good. :) I believe one or more of our ksp's kids received a UNSW medal last year.


roughly how many medal winners for each subject, any idea?


Top scorer in Singapore so it should be one per subject unless there are many ties in top scores in Singapore??? :yikes: :scratchhead:

for Maths, Science, it is quite possible to have some ties, say a few talented kids score full marks. but for Eng Writing, not too sure.....

according to UNSW website, in Sydney, there are even multi-medalists. And these multi-medalists and other subject medalists are nearly dominated by ASIAN kids (included Indian). Not very surprising, it is phenomenon..... :wink:

btw, your avatar is super cute.......what will be ur next one? always so creative and impressive.... :salute:
