GEP P4-P6, same as mainstream, also eligible for the Edusave Merit Bursary if u r are within the top 25% of the level, but household income must not exceed 5K, otherwise only get Certificate.

As for P5 & P6, u will be eligible for the Edusave Scholarship for Primary Schools if u r among the top 10% of students of the level. The value of the award is $350. No income criteria. It's not easy for Gepers to get this one. For mainstream, the cohort size is bigger, eg. 10% of 400 pupils is 40, so u may not be the top 3 in class, but as long as u r top 40 of the level, u r eligible. As for gepers, the cohort size is small. Eg. If u have 2 classes of 24 pupils, 48 in total, 10% is just 4 pupils. So even if u r 2nd or 3rd in class, u may not be eligible, cos only the top 4 of the level can get the scholarship.

Thanks 25hr mama! So the edusave merit bursary/cert for gep is within the gep cohort only. I thought it's all P4 (gep+mainstream). Indeed For P5/6, it's very tough to get edusave scholarship, Dd cohort is very small, 10% is only top 3 in level :smile:

Thank you! Ya, girl. I think it is also due to the school environment, not that competitive.
