My experience of applying to indie is that you apply for a bursary at the same time as applying for the school itself...

Did you apply for a scholarship and/or bursary at the time of applying for the school?

This is a tricky one. It is not clear from your posting whether or not you have applied for a bursary or a scholarship although you say it is the latter.

Your income will determine whether or not you would qualify for a bursary. Did you apply for this when you submitted the application form? If not, you could try contacting the bursary but they are likely to have allocated the money elsewhere; they might just say you were too late with the application.

If you did not apply/did not qualify for a bursary but were expecting a scholarship, then you should have been better advised. I don't think anyone should apply with the expectation of a scholarship - these are very few and you do not know the ability of the other candidates so you cannot know how well he fared in comparison.

Scholarships are usually token awards, although up to 50% is the highest I have heard of, but that is only reserved for the highest candidates in the entrance exam. Most are low or very low and are unlikely to make the difference you expect.

I am unclear as to whether this is your son or your daughter as you put DD but refer to the child as "his" rather than "her". Sorry if I got it wrong.
