P3 Gep include General ability test type of qns : which P3 ICAS English exclude.

Open ended comprehension passages reading section, in Round 1 Gep English section : maybe similar, in terms of asking tricky vocab

Hi, I won't compare P3 EL ICAS to the GEP screening test at all - the latter is much more challenging.
Hi, thanks for the feedback...just curious, is that from your DC's experience in the GEP program, or based on general feedback from children who have gone both sets of tests? I am just wondering because the questions set in GEP screening test are not meant to be available publicly.

If you have the score sheet for Science, you would see the ID and PW to login to the ICAS website. When I checked 2 days back, EL result already out. Maths not sure.

same as you : only P3 Science results out.

P3 (English & Maths) not out yet (for my case)
