DS teachers still giving homework to be handed in during this test period. Is this the norm in GEP? :| TIA.

Am concerned cos there's so little time left to study. :!: Seems that DS class also just learnt about "investigation" and the math test is just a week away!!! :shock:

My DS teacher also just taught them the investigation thingy. Zann, it is about patterns. They give you 3 numbers and then, ask what would be the number at Nth term. I think this could be something like what they did in the GA paper in the 2nd round GEP test.?

I am most worried about EL now. DS has been failing all the practice paper. Some more, his teacher told them today's test will be more difficult than the mock paper. :( I am :pray: :xedfingers:

Yah... heard it is tough, about sec 1/2 standard ... was told in the GEP briefing, parents are advised not to send the GE kids for tuition but let the GEP branch teach them?

I think the INV maths is well-covered by the teacher. I've never done any revision with DS for INV maths so far and from what I observe, it seems the whole class, barring 1 or 2 kids, will get full marks. So I don't think it's anything to worry about unless your kid hasn't been paying attention during lessons.

vlim, the EL paper today will be very hard? Oh no. :cry: :cry:

How do u all prepare the kids for EL CT?
I asked my DS to revise n he replied there's
nothing to revise for EL. :roll:
He might be rite cos'
learning languages is an ongoing process
one can't really prepare just the day before a test.
so :xedfingers:
