Here the principal is 12000Rs
Rate = 8% , time is 1 year
So SI = (12000*8*1)/100 = 960Rs

And this is the amount given as scholarship.
Let the highest scholar ship amount be xRs
So the preceeding scholarship will be x-300, x -600,x -900, x -1200
So x +( x -300 ) + ( x-600 ) +(x-900) + (x-1200) = 960
5x - 3000 = 960
5x = 3960
x = 3960/5  =792Rs
So the highest scholarship is 792Rs
Preceeding scholarships will be 792 - 300 =  492 , 792-600 = 192
So only three students can get the scholarship by given data, others are coming negative, please check your question.
