His mom sort of regretted her decision not to send him for prep class. Nevertheless that boy consistently top in his cohort
That's why I'm wondering are there kids who are tested gifted but didn't get into GEP
sorry to say huh..imo..for p1 to p3 works, if the kids academic ability are above average and studied hard and with parents guidance or tuition..usually they can be top few of the class...but that doesn't imply that they are 'gifted'...u will see the true colour as they go up the level...
