GEP EXPERT PREPARATORY

EduCHAMPS Weekly Gifted Education Programme (GEP) Preparatory Expert For Primary 1 to Primary 3

About GEP screening and selection test:

Every year, the cohort of Primary 3 students is invited to sit for a GEP screening test in August. The test is not compulsory but all children are encouraged to go for it. The test comprises of English and a Mathematics paper, about 1½ hours each.

Out of the cohort of approximately 50,000 kids, some 4,000 pupils (about 8%) are short-listed for the GEP selection test. The selection test takes place over two days in October, the first comprises an English paper and a General Ability paper, about 2½ hours in total. The second consists of a Mathematics paper and another General Ability paper, also about 2½ hours altogether.

From the selection test, about 500 kids (about 1% of cohort) are invited to join the Primary 4 GEP classes. The results are released in early November.

In 2016, 550 students (375 boys and 175 girls) are invited to join the Primary 4 GEP classes in 9 schools that offer the Gifted Education Programme as shown in the table below:

Gifted kids:

The term “gifted” is used to include many kinds of strengths. However, there are a few broad areas in which giftedness can show itself. They are intellectual ability, leadership ability, talent in art and music, and psychomotor ability. The intellectually gifted need a high degree of mental stimulation. This need may not be met in the mainstream classroom and the gifted child may become mediocre, indifferent or disruptive in class.

Gifted kids are like raw diamonds, which needed to be exposed, nurtured and guided to be prepared for the yearly Primary 3 GEP screening and selection test in August and October. Giftedness, by definition, refers to exceptional talent or natural ability. Yet, the geniuses we see around us are often a product of nature and nurture.  EduCHAMPS Weekly GEP Expert Preparatory Class will bring out the full intellectual potential in students by exposing them to specially designed GEP English, GEP Mathematics and GEP General Ability (Verbal & Non – Verbal Reasoning) curriculum in preparation for the 2017 GEP Screening & GEP Selection Test.
