Re: All About Math Olympiad Training & Questions

RIPMWC 2020 is cancelled. What is the implication to Primary 6 students applying for DSA? It means you only left with SMOPS 2020, as well as your past result in RIPMWC 2019 and NMOS 2019. As backup, my advise is to join some 'private' competitions, such as SASMO, Kangaroo or AMC. This is to demonst...

Re: Tao Nan

Besides the BICEP class, how many classes are there in P4 - 6, excluding the GEP classes? Are the remaining classes sorted by abilities? With the change in MOE's directives to reduce focus on academic, will the current lower Pri students also have the BICEP class by the time they reach P4? There is...

Thanks Darwinkoh.
So bicep class will be 1 class on its own? How big is the class?
Yup. The 25 students will remain as classmates for the next 3 years. The only change is their Chinese lessons. Every years, they will be split into different groups to be rotated with different group from the GEPs.

Re: Tao Nan

Thanks Darwinkoh. That's very helpful. May I understand on the academic result part.. what is the min requirement? Overall > 85% (band 1)? Both EL and CL in Band 1? Only the overall academic for the 1st cut. The strength in languages (esp. Chinese) will come into play during the interview and writt...

Re: Tao Nan

Hi, Anyone knows if the school groups those who get into GEP round 2 but not selected for GEP programme in 1 class in P4? No. But many will probably end up in the BICEP class. Those who do well in either English or Math or both but did not qualify for the GEP programme, the Gifted Education Branch ...

Re: All About Math Olympiad Training & Questions

The results were put up at the notice board on Tue (12 Aug). What shocked me is the number of gold awards. Seems like getting gold in NMOS is much more difficult than getting platinum in SMOPS nowadays. Where can I see the results? I didn’t see that at all. Mind sharing if happened to download a co...
