It also trains students who are not gifted to nearly the level of those who are in the gifted programme

I totally agree with you.


how about those 'hot housed' into GEP and cannot cope later in P5/6 and others with arrogant attitude as a result of GEP ?


I think the arrogant attitude is more in part from their upbringing than to be from the programme itself. I have not seen any part of the curriculum inculcating such an attitude and I don't believe MOE has this intend as well.


Obviously and of course it is never the intention of the system
