Is it only the selected students are informed ? Those that are not selected, will they know their results ?

Only the selected students will be given letters. The others will not be informed.

Taonan


I'd expect a lot of students to go through to second round from Taonan? Seems to be that usually a lot of students from GEP schools do well in GEP tests.

Is there a co-relation between the number of students qualifying for the GEP 2nd round and the school they come from?

I suspect there is and i believe that some schools "train" their P3 students for the GEP test. While MOE discourages parents from preparing / training their kids for the gep tests, some schools are doing just that right under moe's nose. :?

am i opening a can of worms?
