I might be wrong. :evil:


I see. So first batch of GEPers will be 27 years old this year. And in order to have GEP kids of 10 years old, must be pregnant by 16 years old


No lah, first batch is 37 years old now. They were 10 years old (P4) in 1984. Your Math fail! So cannot be GEP. :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao: Just kidding hor.

Heard Sim Ann is from the first batch of GEP.

Oh, but she was born in 1975 leh... so if first implemented in 1984, then she was 9 years old when GEP first implemented?? I also heard when GEP first implemented, it was for P6s going to Sec school - only those who scored 3 A* and above were eligible to sit for the GEP tests...

Note the original objective of the GEP: "What was proposed was an enrichment, not an accelerated, programme."

Sounds like much has changed since then.....!
