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


Oops! Didn't proof read. It's meant to be 'into' n I believe the spell check change it into 'not' when I type nto

:thankyou: Nebbermind and Jtoh. I took the liberty of "un-autocorrect" for you, hope you don't mind. :wink:

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?


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.

Thks Jtoh & Herbie! Any idea what is consider as good grades? Different school different standard or still using the same GEB standard like Pri school?

Philosophy in my year was simply retarded (or at least, the way they conduct it is). There were only 2 main exams and only 30% of the level passed the first exam. Then, the school authorities suddenly realised that it was a mandatory requirement to pass Philosophy to get promoted to the next level. Needless to say, almost everyone scored full marks for the second exam.

Haha... I like this part (I have read this more than 1 time), to me this is good news leh (Ooops, from a parent's point of view). :rotflmao:

These days there are still students who don't do well for Philo, barely passing or even failing, while some others do very well.
