On Monday, a fruit seller sold some pineapples (represented by 3 pineapple symbols). On Tuesday, he sold some pineapples again (also represented by 3 pineapple symbols). Total number of pineapples sold was 48.
How many pineapples (in terms of symbols) did he sell on Wednesday ?

Hope to give parents a feel of what kind of questions were being tested for today's GEP paper. Would be happy to hear comments from other parents as well...

My girl said in front should have 50.

Qn : 50, 48, 24, 22, (?), 9

ans : 11
working = (50) - 2 = 48, (48 ) / 2 = 24, (24) - 2 = 22, (22) / 2 = 11, (11) - 2 = 9

most GEP schools would have by now a category called "high ability" class which caters for those who just missed the GEP selection by a little....around the 95th - 99th percentile, since GEP is for the 99th ~ 100th percentile

they would probably band them tightly in those classes for accelerated learning and allocate the best subject teachers .... (logically speaking)

those with good results in P3, plus just missed the GEP selection, will be in "high ability" class, for the last 3 years. Not sure what the new principal will do this year
