MEP and EESIS

Unlike entry to Primary Schools, admission into Secondary Schools is based on meritocracy. PSLE results are used as key admission criteria. Discuss everything related to PSLE and selection of Secondary Schools here.

undestand MEP is a subsidised program. If a child takes MEP, and his PSLE points passed EESIS COP also, will MOE grant him both MEP subsidise and EESIS? thanks in advance.

MEP is free. once your child applied for MEP successfully, he / she can get school fees subsidise about $200 per moth from MOE.

OIC. But some of our children are in schools where the fees are only S$20, so even in MEP, it's not applicable, I guess. If get S$200 from MOE, then can *earn*, liao. HAHAHA!!!

If your kid is in Independent school such as RI and NUSH and awarded EESIS($200 per month) which is still insufficient to pay full of the school fee($300+). On top of the balance you have to pay for school fee, you will have to pay for MEP which is monthly $200. Am I right?

yes you are right, Independent school has higher school fee.
Anyway MEP is free, the MEP subsidy is used to offset school fee.

MEP is free. Just like 3rd language is free, as is AEP(art elective). It's just that in some of the MEP centres, school fees are higher and thus there's a subsidy. So this only applies to Independent Schools.

Anglo-Chinese (Independent) Independent
Methodist Girls’ Independent
Raffles Girls’ School Independent
Raffles Institution Independent

Subsidy would not apply for autonomous schools which are MEP centres:
CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls’ SAP, Autonomous
Crescent Girls’ School Autonomous
Dunman High SAP, Autonomous
Tanjong Katong Girls’ Autonomous

OIC. Thanks sunnyboy and phankao!

In this case MEP grant benefits those who miss EESIS . Those who have taken MEP, do they drop-out easily, like third lang? Understand to do MEP at secondary school, the minmium criterial is grade 3 practical (any instrument?) and theory, do they still have to be selected thru audition? For those who do MEP, do they still have to take lesson at private school like they used to do? Or MEP cover practical? What about school like HCI which does not offer MEP, do they allow student to do it in other premises, like the third lang?
