Is for this year P3 GEP
Can I know where to find GEP paper so roughly I know what to expect from GEP. Please let me know at email@example.com
are you referring to Primary 3 GEP Screening Test papers (Round 1 and Round 2), starting in July, each year ?
Or are you referring to (P4 to P6) GEP classroom exercises done within the class / GEP Test / Exam papers ?
MOE very strict about this !
MOE do not allow GEP P3 Screening papers (Round 1 and Round 2) to circulate around, in public.
if let them circulate freely around, many P3 students will practise beforehand, enter GEP easily.
Those not gifted : also become classified as gifted, through constant practice & drilling of past year 10 year series Gep Test questions.
God, we get it. No need to scorn us. Are you going into the GEP?
Seriously, the exam papers are confidential. You can't actually get them on the market. Being from the GEP I can tell you it's essentially the same as mainstream papers, with the exception of math investigation papers --- that would be pre-algebra.
That paper is kept strictly confidential and even parents can't see it. It's something like an IQ test, judging your ability to see patterns (similar to GAT test during selection.) So if students got in legitimately, by which I mean without training, it should be easy to get full marks for that paper.
Other than that, don't expect that much of a difference. Worry more about your portfolio and projects, which should be a new thing for you.
EDIT: If you're talking about the selection tests, then here. For the screening test they test orthodox classroom knowledge like in a normal exam. For the selection test, however, it goes something like this.
English: They test things like SAT words, and it's difficult to the extreme. I'm guessing they don't expect you to know the words, they just want you to be able to deduce the meaning from the question and context clues.
Math: Just... I don't know. You'll get questions for which you won't even understand but that's normal, just check to make sure the questions you do know are answered correctly.
The GAT is an IQ test, just renamed so as not to draw flak from the public.
