Zann, what is this SS 2nd entry & project about? I know they're suppose to do Problem solving but this is in group. & I know there should be last project, something related to Spore & Asean or Asia, not very sure, but my DS said he does not have any SS to do.

As for homework, he was given tons of testpapers to do. Guess this is not related to GE prog.

May be diff school has diff pace and schedule. SS 2nd entry is something like the 1st entry. I am so sure the nature of the group project but saw my ds have frequent group meetings with his team over Chat and preparing for presentation slides.


Thks Zann. Check with my DS last night. He said his SS teacher has yet to return anything to them for amendment. As for group project, also not completed but his grp is not arranging to meet during the school holidays. *sign* guess all the SS projs will kick in when sch reopen. By then, believe the teachers will also drill them with tons of worksheets!!!
Will be very stessful then... :sweat:

Ex-Gepper popping in again. If I remember correctly, we sit for our respective schools' prelims, but later on there is also a (relatively insignificant) GE mock test to be taken that is of a similar nature to prelims. The GE mock test score however is not recorded in the report book or anywhere, and it's taken nowhere as seriously as prelims.

But then again, I graduated two years ago, and actually most people don't really remember this test because it was really just treated as a practice like prelims should. Just taken during class and everything. But it IS a full set of all papers.

Hi a child, was the mock test for Social Studies only? I thought the other GEP subjects are all ended before June holiday?

Parents of last year P6 GEP also kindly share what happened last year. TIA.

My ds's teacher told the class that the percentage of GEPpers failed the baseline (70% for 4 subjects average) based on SA1 results this year:

The best GEP school - 2%
The worst GEP school - 17%. :yikes:

17% failed the baseline? Did your ds's teacher say this is the norm yearly or just this year? :scratchhead:
