Just wondering if the GEP students will usually be engaged in any camp or oversea excurrsion during June and year end school holiday? Are they usually paid for by MOE? or are they optional?

Hi Zann,
I really can't remember what were the questions. My ds just studied whatever notes, though not much, he was given by teacher and the ss text book. I can only remember that the ct1 is upon 25 marks...so is not a long paper.

As for overseas trip for gepers, it depends on different school arrangement. For eg tao nan, p5 gepers will go to China or Taiwan in June holiday.

A few of the gepers are send overseas as they are selected or qualified for competitions held overseas..For my ds still do not has the chance to go oversea.. :(

Take it easy, cluelessmom.
The teachers should hv put the kids thro practice papers by now.
there's not much u can do for CL & EL just prior to CT this week.
For SS, u should hv receive a note on topics to be tested (pm me if u didn't).

Anyone has got the complete answer for the OE questions of recent practice paper for SS to share? Would greatly appreciate. Mine did not seem to have been guilded to do any correction and still not sure of the complete answer for some of the OE questions. :cry:

Mine has brought his signed copy back to school.
Corrections were done in class - may not be the model answers.
I'll check back again when he returns from school.

erm, my dd's teacher did not give them SS prac paper to do. The class tried to appeal to the teacher to let them hv d paper 'so that it's fair' cos one of their classmate has access to all of last yr's papers (bro in GEP). So far nothing leh.

that classmate said 'no' that's why the rest of the class think it's 'not fair' and wanted the teacher to give them last yr's paper. The same classmate also said the bro taught short cuts (supposedly taught in p5) to solving math investigation qns but 'cannot tell them how to do'. Something about 'if not cannot win'. guess having siblings in GE has it's advantage lah. Is the prac paper tough? MCQ or OE or both?
