I agreed, it is really a hassel to have it so near to the PSLE Oral. Was wondering why not schedule after PSLE Oral, together with the rest of the prelim wriiten paper.

I hope the GE Branch will make the change next year so that it will benefit the subsequent GEP students.

It carries 40% of the final SS marks right ?
And 70% minimum required to continue SS status in secondary school.

According to DS1 the last topics they covered is on colonisation. So will they be tested on this or all the SS syllabus ?

I find this quite a hassle right in between the PSLE orals plus DSA applications.


DS's SS teacher gave them a list of topics to study for the SS prelims -:
i) Our Education
ii) Our Industries
iii) Our Transport
iv) Future Problem Solving
v) SEA

Check with your DS, he should have a list too with details on the areas to be tested on. 2 more weeks to go and looks like a lot to cover.

Just got the notice from DS.
The best thing is there is no notes/handouts for all these topics.
How to study ?

For those who do not want to participate, do they need submit "option out" of the form? Can't remember how it was like last time.

Thought Future Problem Solving is for IRS project? how does it link to SS?

SEA stands for South East Asia.
I just checked thru the two volume of social study text book 6A and 6B, The whole 6B is on SEA. The rest of the topics are in volume 6A.

can advise my friend ? ... Thanks v much!

my friend's son (P3 this year) at Henry Park - if offered a GEP place, is it better to stick to HPPS, or transfer him to Nanyang, since both are GEP centres ?
