Nowadays well -informed aunties are also known as ladies. This term is interchangeable.

I remembered 1st round test definitely on weekday as it was conducted during school hours. 2nd round test was during the PSLE marking days as I had to arrange to fetch.

They switched the screening test to a weekday so that all students can participate in it. Selection test is always on PSLE marking days.

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 English standard is pretty high. The cloze passage can be as long as 2 pages. When he was in P4, he only score 22/40 for GEP english paper. But when he did his mainstream English, he scored full marks. Now in P5, he failed his English paper. But in GEP, there's other assignment for English, eg, writing of mystery story, summary, book review etc. But in GEP, passing grade is not 50%. It's 70%. So, he might not be able to meet it since he does not do well in his paper. I think he got selected because of Math cos he's strong in Math.
