GEP test for Pri 3 kids are on "opt out" basis since at least 2007
top 5 % of the whole national cohort goes into second round
top 1% of the whole national cohort gets into GEP
some schools started (since 2008) HA (high ability) classes for those just missed the GEP cut off - these are usually the top mainstream classes ex-GEP.....some of their performance can surpass the GEPpers
Anyone remember that in the past rosyth and nanyang also offered something like this ha classes for students that miss the cutoff by a bit?
i think they still do, officially, and some program in the HA is also highlighted in MOE website
