Yes, my son also says English is 2 marks per question vs Math 1 mark per question so English has a higher weightage for screening round.

Sleepy,

Thanks for sharing Penn88 past post. :smile: Yeah, I second that,too. :smile:

DS said he is very confused. On the front page for both EL and MA papers, it states one mark each question. But at the back, the EL paper states award 2 marks for each correct answer and the MA paper states award 1 mark for each correct answer. According to him, he saw full marks for each paper is 50. so I am :scratchhead: :scratchhead: ?????

Your DS is correct.


Hi zakashi, thanks!

---------------------

I try to make myself clearer, the 1 mark each is stated on the question paper and award 2 marks for correct answer is stated on the answer sheet (not the piece that they do shading but the one that is used for non-mcq questions). For MA, it is award 1 mark for correct answer.

Btw, is it ok to discuss 2015 screening here or should we discuss in the GEP 2015 - Screening & Selection thread?

In the past Mar, Jun and coming Sep school holidays, the P4 GEP students in DD's school have been given lots of homework & assignments. In fact for short 1 week school holidays, there's no real break. Does anyone know if it's going to be like this too for the year-end Nov-Dec holidays? :shock: :imdrowning:
