I think there is no t-score requirement for GEppers.

So which means that as long as they get promoted, they will get EESIS ?
Is EESIS for GEP & those for mainstream mutually exclusive or they belong to the same queue ? Meaning if a GEPPER gets it, he or she will not deprive another mainstreamer a chance to get it ?

If they have not already have a CO, then they probably will not get into any of the IS with gifted prog with a low T-score.

As for whether they are mutually exclsuive, I think the mainstreamer probably have a fixed COP which traditionally seems to be around 260. Whatever % they mentioned in MOE website is probably some ballpark figure.
