We never received any cash/ popular vouchers for any of the merit awards from our RC over the past many years - only got the certs through the mail.

Edusave EAGLES award & scholarship $ were from MOE Edusave fund I think, not from our RC. So for our constituency, I think they just present the certs/ vouchers for these types of awards in the ceremony but don't add on any from their funds.

Ya. We've never received any voucher either. I think even the mini buffet is dependent on constituency too, cos in the previous constituency we resided in, the RC never offered any makan stuff after the award ceremony.. but the current one did. :evil:

If till now we never received the TOP 25% merit award means we never got it already?

Can I ask for this award, does the dual track IS segregate between the IP students and O-level students meaning, TOP 10% of IP students and TOP 10% of O-level students to be awarded?

Need help and some clarifications about Edusave awards.. if my DD receive ES, does it mean she is top 10% of the neighborhood or nation?

Is it a good gauge for her PSLE results next yr?

Will this help in her DSA application?

It's 10% of her school. Whether it helps with DSA is uncertain - probably not that much.

(1) The Edusave Award is awarded based on own school's cohort, not neighbourhood or nation.
(2) Edusave Award is awarded to students based on each year's performance in her own school only, so it is not a good gauge for her PSLE results next year.
(3) hmm...it may or may not helps in her DSA application, depends on which school she DSA, & unless the school request this award info., but did not state in particular "Competition", then you can attach Edusave Award. Based on my dd's DSA experience this year for NYGH, the school did not ask for this kind of Edusave Award. Eg. If the DSA domain is Bilingual/Math/Science etc, what the school wants is the award received from the particular domain's competition, & school results; not Edusave Award.
