NUS High School of Mathematics and Science (Diploma)

Having survived PSLE. we still need to network with other parents with kids in the same Secondary school. While giving our teenagers their own space, we can update each other about the school.

Between A*STAR and DSTA, which is better ? It's really up to DS's aspiration. ASTAR awardees are naturally potential future A*STAR undergraduate scholarship holders - with more choice in research fields, physical as well as biological sciences.

DSTA - purely defence science, physical science area only.
Noted, thanks a lot ! :smile:
To follow up on this, if we have applied for DSTA earlier and now we receive invitation to apply for A-Star which we are more keen, what will happen ? They are mutually exclusive right ? :slapshead:

DSTA just emailed to say we are selected for Prelim Assessment, should we opt out now ? Or just go for it and wait for outcome first since we may not get any one of them ? :sweat:

EESIS is automatically given, each year from yr 1 to yr 6 based on results.

Below are some of the scholarships/awards/prizes that I am aware of; there may be some more.

In upper secondary, the following are available,
MOE upper secondary
YDSP
AStar upper secondary science award

In JC years:
LKY ARE & LKY M & Sc ( for achievement in secondary years)
MOE JC scholarship
DSTA JC scholarship
Astar JC Science Award
Spore Police Force Book Prize ( given to Yr 6 students)
Singapore Armed Forces,
MOE/ RSI scholarship
MTI scholarship
EBD scholarship
Tay Eng Soon, ( NUSH only)

For Astar, students can apply for REP exemption if they have participated in MOE LSAP and was attached to a AStar lab during year 4.

Chances are high for NUSH student to do their ARP in one of Astar lab and hence could also exempted from the REP

For DSTA, the research attachment can be exempted if there is no suitable programme available.

DC told DSTA during interview the strong interest in a particulate medical field and it does not stop DSTA from giving DC the DSTA JC scholarship and was exempted from Research attachment.

DC currently in yr 6 and has received 6 scholarships/award/prize for JC years.
If the ARP is done with National Neuroscience Institute (NNI), can the REP be exempted ? Is NNI considered as AStar Lab ? Thanks !

Is canteen food really bad? Higher price (additional 50 cents) due to fruit? More students go out eat after 1pm and hence spend even more :(
Many throw away fruit as well? :(

Dagong99,

On the exclusivity of Scholarship ( A*Star vs DSTA), talk to college councillor, Miss Hwang for some advice. She is the best person to advise on this matter.
