I guess it's unavoidable coz there are only 400~500 privileged ones vs alot more intelligent ones so some unhappiness can be expected. :wink:

If I remember correctly, the statistics that principal shown us, 30% didn't receive any DSA offer. Statistics only referring to dd's school.

Think it is the last GEP exam the pupils need to take. It is important that they pass the overall SS exam. Having said that, I have never heard of any P6 students failing the SS paper.

Perhaps they didn't want parents to take it too lightly :evil:

Just curious, if they don't get a DSA offer, does it mean they didn't get into the IP school via their PSLE score as well?

30% is a lot. When MOE GE department came to give a talk to the parents last year, they showed us the past 3-5 years' DSA stats. It's in the mid to high 80s. So in essence, 8-9 out of every 10 GE kids will get a CO before PSLE.
