GEP has privilage?

Unlike entry to Primary Schools, admission into Secondary Schools is based on meritocracy. PSLE results are used as key admission criteria. Discuss everything related to PSLE and selection of Secondary Schools here.

GEP has privilage?

Does GEP has priviliage into top school despite you might not meet cut off point?

It is not a privelege. Sec schools value the programme these kids have gone thro' and recognises their potential and thus may admit them at a lower COA. Kids who have specific talents other than academic get the same consideration.

If the GEP student didn't get any confirmed DSA offer, he will have to join the rest of the students to select schools after psle results are released. And, the cutoff point applies to both mainstream and GEP students. There isn't a lower cop for GEP students.

But, if a GEP student has a confirmed offer and did worse than T-score to qualify for express stream, then he would lose that place in the school and reapply for another sec school with normal stream.
Hope this clarifies.

But they are GEP students with lots of potential, by enrolling them, there is a higher chance that they can score in O level, would these top school prefer that way and allow them to come in and 'groom' them?

Hi mathsparks, can u help confirm if the T-score to qualify for express stream is 200 or 250 ? I found there has been a mix-up of this figure in this forum before... thks.

Yes, it's 200 for most IP schools like RGS/RI, NYGH/HCI etc. Slightly lower at SOTA.
