actually surprise me that a GEP student can fail his english test, more likely a one-off bad performance. One of the criteria for GEP selection at P3 is the grasp and maturity in the usage of the english langauge apart from strength in other areas like analytical thinking etc. :smile:

The GEP English standard is quite demanding. Was told sec 2 standard at P5. If they can score above 70, my ds teacher would say it is good. I am not sure what weightage is the English component during P3 selection test though.

Better don't prepare and let nature take its course. From what I was told the various training centres do not cover English componet.
