1. Sometime after SA, the kids will be ask to choose their next yr most preferred ISO projects. IVP, ID, Future problem solving and etc...I think ID need audition. Teacher in charge will make the final decision which type of project your kid will pick up.

2. Sometime after SA also or early next yr...the kids will take a selection tests for Advance maths enrichment club which mainly doing MO questions. Only selected ones through the test will be invited to join this AMEC in p5.

I hope that you don't mind me asking, are you a gep mom or a ex gep student? What is the size of the population? trying to understand... how do you determine being top 0.1% of the population of Math means?

Lynn: For math, I am better than those who set the questions. I emailed you before, it is part of my work :-P

comfy: I was unable to get into gep program. Not many people in the area of my work. My work deals with lots of mathematics.

Hence, if you ask me gep question on English or science related to biology or chemistry, I would not be able to help :yikes:

comfy wrote:Hi, Vilim, in your opinion, which ISO project is the 'easiest' ? Don't involve alot of time, effort etc.


I am not sure about other ISO project but my ds did the ivp project and is not too difficult nor stress la. Everyweek, there will be an extended day for the kids to discuss the projects with their group mates and mentor/teacher. The grade is not taken into account of the exam marks but some schools :smile: , like this yr RI, might request the kid to show their project tt they are proud/good of during dsa interview. So try to do it good lor.
