The pupil needs to satisfy either the Gross Household Income (GHI) or the Per Capita Income (PCI) criterion. PCI is computed based on the GHI divided by the number of members in the household (including parents, siblings and grandparents).

If the PCI criterion is used and the household members include grandparents or other dependents, copies of their NRICs are to be submitted to prove that they are living at the same address.   If child dependents are included, relevant legal documents are required to prove that they are under the custody of the family.

Pupils who wish to apply for ISB are to submit the application form together with relevant documents. The School will inform pupils on the outcome of their applications.

The MOE ISB application form can be obtained here or at the General Office.
