Good morning all

I have been frantically scouring the internet for GEP assesment books, and cannot find any. Can anyone recommend GEP standard books for English and General Ability, please.

If u want the books to prepare your kid for GEP selection test, then there isn't any. Anyway, it's not recommended to prepare he kids for GEP. Some of my DD classmates have problem completing their works as they can't gasp as fast as the GEPpers. On top of their academic struggles, they have lots of projects to complete. Even my DD who has no issue with homework has problem coping with the project loads.

And the English & GA is not the main key to GEP. They are there to ensure the kids are able to understand the language as maths qtn are in English and the GA is to test the kids ability to gasp concept.

I feel that maturity, self-driven, self-motivated, ability to understand concept fast and in-depth with strong fondation of both Eng/Maths is the min requirements to survive in GEP. Otherwise, not only the child suffers the parents need to push very hard and worst case they may have to do all the work for the child.

I appreciate that, but there must be some books, or even online learning sites for this. Does anyone know of any useful resource, please?

There is seriously no books or assessment for GEP. It is a controlled setting by the MOE. If there is, there will be mayhem among the MOE educators.

Whoah...this sounds quite deadly but you are right, no materials that can be bought.

No publishers would bother to publish assessment books for merely 1% of the cohort. Insufficient volume to cover their cost

Why would one need GEP material??

If your kid is able to handle academic stuff beyond his level, u can always expose him to material for a level or 2 higher. Take up MO training in school or outside or self study. Plenty of good science material in public libraries too. Like they said, the sky is the limit. You are not confined just because you are physically not in the GEP environment.
