i think only parents of p5 gepers are invited. A form was given to see if we can attend. Maybe this talk is to teach the parents how to 'ease' their p5 gep child from the terribly, heavily workload..... I start to feel the 'pressure' nowwwwwwwwww :sweat:


I agreed with u too. Can feel the pressure nowwww. So many projects due this month, how to prepare for CT? Merger project, portfolio, sci IDP, English Mystery story and now just added the English ERP! Gosh... Pity our kids.

I would have think so, as the timing seems to be the same for all GEP schools. HCL for GEP and non-GEP are different, but my DS school does invite the top mainstream class to join in the same class. And it has been so far so good that I have not observe anyone selling or offering download of GEP paper, and I think we should keep it that way.

As for the promotion criteria for P5/P6, here is from my DS PT briefing:

To be given a ‘Promoted’ status, a GEP pupil has to fulfill the following criteria:
a. Obtain an overall average >70% for E, M, S and MT
AND
b. Obtain the following in at least 3 subjects:
1) English Language >65%; and
2) Mathematics >70%; and
3) Science >70% ; and
4) MT or HMT >70%; and
5) Social Studies – At least a ‘Pass’ grade


Here is what I have put up previous about passing mark. I think the criteria should be similar for P4.

I thought that passing grade for MT and HMT is 65%, not 70% :?

This was quoted from the slides presented during the PT meeting. The slides at the school website is no longer there, so I can't link you there.

May I know what is the format for social studies CT ? Is it MCQ/open question ?

How to prepare for SS CT ? dd's teacher said she will not be giving them past year papers for practice.
