I would expect across all GE centres to have around only 3 students to score less than 70%, expecially so for the P6 as they will be very used to the GE exam by then.
I also wonder what help is given to these students who did not clear the basemark.
Could these children be those who attend "special GEP prep course" to get into GEP but cant cope?
Honestly, my dd was very lazy, she is the type that wont do more than what was given as homework to get by. Day dreamer, forgot to do/hand-in hmwk, etc. She scored >80% in her GEP mid year last year. Considering she is a potato, cant really speak mandarin (should not score too high for MT oral & compo), not a bad result
