GEP was only implemented from 1984. :wink:


DH & me also not from GEP. We did not miss the boat, the boat was still in the drafting stage during our times. :rotflmao:
So, we never got to find out but I believed my DS got that genes from his dad as I'm hopeless with Math. :stupid:


perhaps can start a poll here to find out how many parents and child are both from GEP.....

How's P6 Gep like?? is it tough?

When my ds was in p5, last yr, a few parents here said tt p6 gep is a breeze... But no le ... As they have ct1 in march and SA in may plus various English assignment,Ss portfolio , maths assignment ... So it was very busy in 1st and 2 Nd term :sweat: .. But I feel relief after his p6 sa1 exam as tt is the last gep exam :dancing: ... I feel tt p6 science got lots more things to study such as adaption which is part of mainstream curriculum also .... The rest of the subjects are abt the same as p5 lor .
For Ss they have to do 2 portfolio whereby they have to choose their own topics.... Need quite a fair bit of write out with simple survey etc etc.. But with p4 and p5 Ss portfolio experiences... They shouldn't have much problem with it also with the teacher guidance ..


Still so much work. Sounds more like full blown hurricane than a "breeze" leh...

Alamak, KSP, u didn't get my msg huh?
GEP only started in 1984, if both parents n child was/is in GEP,
then GEP parents will be too shy to identify themselves liao
u know wat I mean? :evil: :wink: :wink:

Thankfully, dd did ok for the recent eng ct and her hmt has also improved slightly as compared to last semester.
:dancing:


That's wonderful! It's always a happy thing to see improvement. Let's all jiayou together!

Yah talk about dry topics for compre. I usually start to space out about one-third into the passage. Mid-way through I already have no idea what the passage is all about. I really feel sorry for the students who have to read through the whole passage.... The thought of it is enough to make me cry.

You space out, I got headache after reading 3 to 4 times & a few pages somemore. Still can't answer some of the questions. I wonder what they (GEP dept) hope to achieve. Try to kill some of these kids' passion for learning!? Not all kids like this type of dry materials/topics. Or is it I am out of touch? :wink:
