For anyone still interested in knowing about GA1 in the selection test, I found another interesting book that will give an insight to what the GA1 is about. Please note that only some questions are similar according to my child. The book's title is 'Brain Teasers' under the brain blenders series. I found this book in West Mall Popular and it costs $5.89.



Hi Comfy,
Thanks you so much for your info. I will go and buy one. My DD will be in P3 next year. Merry Christmas and a happy new year to you!

Glad to hear that and merry christmas to you too. Just to add the book can be found under the Junior Reference. And all the best to your dd too.

HI,

Could I check if the children in GEP will be in the same classes throughout the 3 years--

I know for Catholic high, they do shuffle the boys in P5 and P6.

HPPS do shuffle the students from P4 to P5. Yet to be informed whether they will do it for those going to P6 next year.

Oh this is so unexpected... I was just telling my ds that he can look forward to forming really firm friendship with his classmates as they may be together for 3 yrs.... But how about the GEP schools that have only 1 or 2 classes? How to shuffle?

DD's school has 2 classes of GEP for each level and shuffling is done when they move from year to year. There is not much difference as they have alot of combined activities. So you do get to see your friend very frequently even though in different classes and especially if your child and friends are taking the same type of CL.

Yes they do shuffle the classes every year. But the cohort of GEPpers are so small they all know each other very well anyway.

I was told from P4 to P5 yes due to selection of HMT. For those who are still doing HMT, not sure whether there will be movement too?

I think different schools have different ways of assigning classes. DD's school was not based on Cl or HCl. Rather random, maybe more to spread out the 'trouble-makers'.

Hi Comfy, may I know what is GA1? Is that the title of the book under Brain Teasers section? Wonder if the book is still around at Popular?
