Not sure about extent of impact on overall %. For DD's cohort, the highest/ lowest/average scores for HCL and Cl is comparable. I suppose if we assume a child who is above average at CL would be around average/slightly below average when taking HCL, then I suppose the overall % will suffer (maybe around 2% if we assume a decrease in 10marks, which is 2% when averaged over 5subjects).
However, the intangible will be exposure to CL that is of higher standard and demand.

At P5, kids need to meet certain academic criteria before they are allowed to take up HCL.
If GEP kids choose CL at P5 which is easier than the GEP HCL, then I suppose that will benefit the overall % at year end which will benefit their DSA.
Is GEP CL same as mainstream CL? Do they attend lesson togather?
