Is there any public breakdown of how many from each school make it to GEP?
[color=#0000FF]no break down because for most schools it varies from year to year, GEPPers cannot be taught, so no relationship to schools, BUT [/color]
If some schools only one person, it stands to reason that others might have 5-10?
some schools like NYPS, RGPS etc consistently produce enough GEPPers to fill at least 1/3 of the cohort in their school, but i attribute this to the type of parents these schools usually have, mainly professionals, my own opinion
Also - it seems that some children "opt out" of GEP - is there a wait-list or something like that? Do they invite 500 or accept 500?
yes, some do opt out, but they continue to do well in their own school. No waiting list as to GE Branch it is only open that is "eligible", I agree to this as not to stress kids who are not at the same level
Also - when you are informed (either way) do you get to know the "score" you got in the test and how that was relative to other students?
If you decide to go for GEP, then you have to accept "SECRETS", so many things are SECRET in GEP, tests papers not allowed to show parents and bring back etc, sometimes you don't even know what the children learn in School
