Hi all, just like to share this slide in case u r not informed of the the GEP Promotion Criteria.

Image

It states here that the passing mark for Social Studies is 50%, not the usual 70% that I thought earlier. And P6 GEP, Singaporean students will be awarded EESIS, only if they:

1) meet the P6 GEP promotion criteria ( which include meeting a T-Score of 250 & above ), and
2) are enrolled in the IP in an Independent School.

Hi clover18, I believe it will be like the grading for HCL:-
Distinction - 80-100
Merit - 65-79
Pass - 50-64


Hi 25hrmama, thank you!

Regarding the t-score of 250, there are exceptions. :wink:

There are known cases of lower score still getting the award...and AFAIK, 250 is not stated in MOE website.

The cases of students still getting the award despite not meeting the requirement, were they from last year's batch?

Nope, it's a few years back. Perhaps they trust that the dsa schools have down their due diligent assessment when they granted the dsa.

That explains it. The 250 criteria was introduced last year.

It was made known to the GEP students and their parents. Maybe it only concerns them? Or the IT dept not very on the ball?
