得与失只是一线之差,关键在于你如何看待它,得或许是失的开始, 而失也可能是得的初萌。

Why le :scratchhead:

alamak.
there are 7 classes of P2. and only 1 'top' P3 class after streaming. there will bound to be some top P2 students who could not get top3 position in the P3 class after streaming. you get what i mean?


For dd's school, only focus on school level ranking. So top students remain on top regardless of which class they're in.

Thks mommyNg for sharing. I like this chinese phase. Very good reminder for all of us... and not to be too hard on our kid...

My DS2 took the screening test yesterday, plus the CA test in afternoon, close to like 5 hrs doing test papers in 1 day... Come to think of it, this is crazy to subject a P3 kid thru... Like others, our instruction to DS2 was take morning screening test as practice, and not take it too hard. :xedfingers:

I just wish to find out. For a child who is in GEP and later select a GEP secondary school, does the kid enjoy affiliation type scheme whereby the child does not need to obtain the same level of score as a mainstream child to get into the sec school. If yes, does it only apply to GEP sec schools or all sec schools? TIA

They do assess the children from GEP and mainstream differently for those schools offering DSA. GEP scoring system is different from mainstream.
MOE has do away with the so call GE secondary schools as the IP schools offer SBGE (School based GE) programme, which has some aspect of GE programme in their curriculum. Most of the GE students will end up in one of these IP schools, but the GE students still have to gain entrance with their own merit.
