Hi again :D I'm a GEPer from RGPS P6 '10.

For RGPS, class sorting is random and the teachers spread the people with similar characters out into different classes.. or so I think. So each class has both troublemakers and academically better ones. However, class R from P Q and R always has the HCL pupils.

Is P5 more taxing then P4..?? Yes, It is because they need to do IVP/IRS/FPS etc??

Yes it is. P4 is like a prep year for P5. You learn the skills required for application in P5. RS, various projects, Olympiads... all these add to the workload. Of the three GEP years, I would say that P5 is the toughest. P6 is a breeze.

Hi herbie,

I think you know your dd best. As a guide, many of my dd's classmates continued taking their music and dance exams all through their GEP years. The workload is manageable. :)

Hi!

May I know what is 'RPS'? My DD just asked me. It was in her timetable.

I think I had read about it in somewhere. But, forgot what is it.

Please Advise.

Thank you

Is it FPS - Future Problem Solving? It's taught under social studies.

I think it is research Project skills. They go through classes in P4 in preparation for P5 IRS (Individual research studies) project

The timetable put RPS, every Thursday, 1.30pm to 2.30pm.

Anyway, my DD said she will check with her teacher.

Just now, she forgot to ask.

Thank you
