I find that it's not easy to find those books in the library, the Popular and San Bookstore (rental). Maybe must try Kino or Borders.


All of these books are very well written but considerably old, and probably publishing has stop. I usually try to find them at the second book stores, or look for them on online bookstore. The other avenue is the school library.

My DD has yet to receive the ERP list - or she has forgotten to give it to me!

Checked with her about maths and she said that the teacher goes thru every new topic and they do all the worksheets from the workbook.

Generally, how does your child feel about the paper?


My dd said she'll definitely fail cos she had just enough time to finish the paper (only 30 min given!!) and didn't have time to check. Previously she always had plenty of time to check her answers. :cry:

Thought Chinese lang is not a GEP subject and varies from school to school? Not all are taking HCL, am I right?

I thought all GEP centres take the mini test on the same day? Maybe I'm confused.

not too sure about gep CL but for gep HCL all centres should be taking the same paper and it is diff from mainstream HCL paper.. a bit more 'challenging' I supposed. If u are referring to p5 gep hcl test, my ds said quite difficult... :roll:
