Should be school teachers, but send to GEB for moderation to ensure consistency amongst the GEP schools.

Must pass both papers? 70% each? What happen if a child scored above 70% for one of the papers but the other paper is below 70%?

Huh? Not sure what you mean but the passing mark for subjects in gep is 70% for each subject, but i think social studies only 50%. At end of term or year, if a child scores below that, believe the teachers will ask the child to attend extra classes.

Now I must also clarify which GEP paper Zakashi is talking about - is it the GEP P4-P6 test papers or the GEP screening paper for P3? :scratchhead:

The marking scheme I mentioned refers to GEP P4-P6 test papers. I don't know about the marking of the GEP screening paper for P3.

I dont think anyine knows the selection. Ds1 had classmates who didnt complete the paper but they got into round 2. Recall those days someone mention that there could be dummy questions for which there is no consequence. In any case, just take as another day. If child gets the letter, just go look see, dont get, continue as normal.

Btw they dont release how many marks or right/wrong questions the child got.
