Herbie, I tot that as long as the student retain his/her gep status, he/she will get eeis. I might be wrong but i remembered this was said during one of those parent/teacher briefing in school.

So the minimum score only applies to mainstream? I recalled reading somewhere that the cut off point for EESIS scholarship last year was 262.

Oh, i thought that one of the criteria for EEIS was a min Tscore of 250? :? Remember hearing about a 250 t-score requirement, what is it for?

Really? But no min scores was mentioned during one of those parent/teacher meeting. I remembered they said the child must retain gep status (pass ss, good attitude n pass psle).

No minimum score. But must have been promoted to secondary GEP status and passed SS.

Hi Jtoh, is it a 4 yrs scholarship? Any string attached?

If u managed to dsa not a IS, chances is that u will get the eesis. But if u have less than 250 n trying to get into IS via S1, chances of getting into IS n the sbge is really not too good. Maybe that's how the 250 came about.

The link herbie attached gives all the info on EESIS. It's 4 years if you're attending a 4 year coures, 6 years if you're attending IP. No strings except you're expected to maintain good grades.

EESIS is only for INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS (IS), so if you aren't in an IS you won't be awarded EESIS.
