Top Grades

A school has handed its students nearly £1 million in cash.

The money was reportedly given to 239 teenagers who had managed to pass a demanding entry exam to Shuren Middle School, in Zhejiang province, China.

There were three separate scholarships awarded depending on scores of 100,000 yuan (£11,579), 50,000 yuan (£5,789) and 40,000 yuan (£4,631).  After paying off the yearly 30,000 yuan (£3,482) tuition fee at the private Shuren Middle School, the students could keep rest of the money.

The school’s principal, Lin, defended the rewards and said he hoped they would encourage top performing students to apply to the school.  He believed in them so much he even apparently sold his own property in Shanghai to pay for them.
