Hello folks..

Don't know if its good news or something more siong ahead... my kid actually got selected into GEP..

We never prepared him for this at all... we didn't even know he gone for Round 1 until he told us he needed to take Round 2 in another school.

 

Any feedback/recommendations if this is actually beneficial for a kid?

If it does, which are the recommended schools in NE area?

if you dun feel comfortable of him coping or the GEP school is too far, opt out.

 

My wife niece was selected to go Tao Nan, she opt out yet able to make it to RGS & NYSG after the PSLE.

Smart kid you got there. Can't give any advice, coz my kid didn't make it, hence no experience.

Actually (I heard) that round one is quite easy to get in.

 

It is round 2 that is tough, and only the really good ones will get thru it.

Gifted program takes the top 1% of the cohort vs Mensa which takes it the top 2% of the population.

 

it is more difficult to get into the gifted program vs Mensa.

 

so can we say that all the Gifted program participants are geniuses but not all mensa geniuses are gifted? lol

When I was a little boy....

 

I passed the second round and was offered a place in Henry Park Primary. But I didn't want to leave my school/friends so opted out.

 

...and that's why now I'm classified as "boh tak chek".

Yah they explained the options to me and let me decide since I would be the one most affected by the decision.

 

Those days things were not so stressful in school, but I think they still knew that it would be a big change and extra pressure. The tests themselves were pretty simple as far as I can recall, I remember lots of pattern recognition "what comes next" kinda things and some English questions.

i'm comfortable he's able to cope.. if it's really developing him.. we are going to get free enrichment classes? lol!

but i'm more concerned if the school is okay.. and if it can take his sibling, else, my administrative nightmare, if i need to drop 2 kids who need to be at 2 different locations at the same time.
