I am really clueless ...


i think with the geppers status in sec school, then they are qualified to take the school based gifted programme just like passing the gep p3 screening test then they can enrol into the 3 years of ge programme from p4 to p6 to further test their ability and further nurture them with the programme that suits them..

So if they opt to go sec school without SBGE then..they will not able to take the gifted education programme..and whether got ge status or not..I suppose..no one will bother abt it as he or she will be taking the same syllebus as the rest...

Tks vlim, in other words, even if they were accepted by the school thru' DSA, they may still not be able to take the SBGE programmes if they didn't do so well for their PSLE right?

I think the new 7 IPs school does not change much for gepers secondary school preference.

I think there is some change in the system for GEPers. In the past, in 1 of the top schools that I know, GEPers are "kept together" throughout the 4 years of sec school, even when his/her results were quiet bad. It seems to be a requirement from MOE then.

Today, only the really top students are placed together in the top class regardless of their status. GEPers who did not match the top students would be transferred to mix with the other students.
