I took the GEP test today, and let me tell you, I think it was quite :stupid: for some people. English paper had 40 questions while Math has 50 questions. Can't reveal too much but the Eng has Grammer MCQ(or was it vocab MCQ?), Compre MCQ and Cloze Passage OE. Math had tougher questions but at least it had no Section C. Am very :scared: I fail paper and get :spank: . (Haha).

Not that true in some schools because with the vacancies they will be able to transfer in some cream of the crop from other schools who have been waiting to enter the school. We have some of these cases where the top students in other schools transfer in and they outshine some of the top class students....that is reality.

Anyway, what's important is the child should not feel any lesser not to be in GEP because the area of talent is very specific and it does not rule out that they have no other talents so keep searching and nurturing, everyone is unique.
