In ACSP, my son had to stay back one afternoon for IRS and another for HCL when he was in P4. He had CCA 3 afternoons a week so he was staying back everyday. That was a few years ago so I am not sure if it will still be the same.

In my daughter's school, they only had to stay back an afternoon a week for CEP in P4. HCL was during curriculum time. Also CEP could be considered a CCA so it was really optional to take up another CCA.


:thankyou: 4 Leaf Clover!

Hi KTSboy,

My DD got into St Hilda's too so likely will be classmate? I presume you did not attend the GEP briefing? You will get the booklist etc info which are inserted in the booklet at their booth.

Sleepy, was any reason given for the departure?


Nobody from my dc's batches was asked to leave gep but from what I gather from the trs, they don't look at marks alone. They look at the kid's learning attitude too.


Based on my experience as a school-based GEP teacher, normally a GEP student will not be asked to leave, unless the student has
1) attitude problem
2) discipline problem
3) health problem.

Are the GEP students group separately from mainstream when assessing the top 10%?

For some GEP centers where students either take CL or HCL ONLY but are ranked together without apparent differentiation, is it considered fair?
