This is different from the one that was given when students were in P1 to P4 as it is regardless of income level. That means, if the child qualifies for the scholarship at P5, he/she can get the award (my friend mentioned $300?) regardless of family income.
Does any parent know how this 10% will be derived for kids in GEP?
I think you are referring to http://www.moe.gov.sg/initiatives/edusa ... ts-awards/
Same criteria apply to GEP...you need to be top 10% in the level of the GEP cohort of your school to qualify. For example, if there are 50 P5 GEP students, you need to be among the top 5 to qualify for this award.
so normally when will the qualified students receive this award?
Sorry, I can't quite recall...only remembered my son got a letter and we had to go to some Community Club for a prize-giving ceremony. If my memory serves me correctly, the wording in the letter said something to the effect that you must attend the ceremony in order to collect the cheque (implying absence will result in the money being forfeited?).
