Programme Highlights

 

 


Runs 4 times in the academic year, this popular programme provides different sets of practices every time your child participates in the programme in order to score well in the Selection exercises. The materials are pitched according to your child’s learning abilities at different times of the year.

 

Primary 2

English


For English, Primary 2 students will be trained on how to apply specific tips and strategies for a variety of General Ability questions ranging from word puzzles and analogies to homographs and anagrams. They will also learn how to analyse challenging comprehension and cloze passages, and be trained on how to eliminate options using clue-sourcing and answer precision techniques.

As vocabulary carries a high weightage in the Selection exercise, students will also get practice for tricky GEP-level MCQ questions that test their ability to differentiate between words with subtle nuances in meaning and require contextual application of vocabulary.

Components and skills covered:

  • Comprehension MCQ: Specialist guidance on question analysis, critical reading, clue-sourcing and answering techniques
  • Vocabulary MCQ: Exposure to a comprehensive range of GEP-level vocabulary
  • Cloze Passage: Contextual analysis and answer precision techniques 
  • General Ability: Homographs, anagrams, analogies and logic questions
     

Mathematics


For Mathematics, Primary 2 students will be exposed to different types of non-routine problems which include familiar concepts such as arithmetic, patterns and measurement. The General Ability questions aim to boost their higher-level logical thinking and reasoning skills.

This enrichment programme is also aimed at challenging students to achieve their full potential by tackling topics which require a strong ability to visualise diagrams. They will be taught how to analyse questions of high complexity and apply creative problem-solving methods to achieve efficiency.

Components and skills covered:

  • Arithmetic: Number sense and four operations
  • Geometry: Properties of polygons, area and perimeter
  • Measurement: Gaps and intervals, mass, sets

General Ability components:

  • Number Patterns: Number sequences, number puzzles, rotational/symmetrical/inverted figure patterns
  • Figure Patterns: Rotational/symmetrical/inverted patterns
  • Logic: Relationship in pairs, matrix puzzles
  • Spatial Sense: Solid figures, nets, folding questions
     

P3 GEP Excellence 3

English


For English, Primary 3 students will be trained on how to apply specific tips and strategies for a variety of General Ability questions ranging from word puzzles and analogies to homographs and anagrams. They will also learn how to analyse challenging comprehension and cloze passages, and be trained on how to eliminate options using clue-sourcing and answer precision techniques.

As vocabulary carries a high weightage in the Selection Exercise, students will also get practice for tricky GEP-level MCQs that test their ability to differentiate between words with subtle nuances in meaning and require contextual application of vocabulary.

  • Cloze Passage: Contextual analysis and answer precision techniques 
  • General Ability: Homographs, anagrams, analogies and word puzzles

Mathematics


For Mathematics, Primary 3 students will be exposed to different types of non-routine problems under the familiar concepts of arithmetic,  geometry and measurement. The General Ability questions aim to boost their metacognitive skills in identifying patterns, and higher-level logical thinking and reasoning skills.

This enrichment programme is also aimed at challenging students to achieve their full potential by tackling topics which require a strong ability to visualise diagrams. They will be taught how to analyse questions of high complexity and apply creative problem-solving methods to achieve efficiency.

Mathematics Topics Covered:

  • Arithmetic: Number sense and four operations
  • Geometry: Properties of polygons and shapes within shapes
  • Measurement: Gaps and intervals, sets

General Ability Components:

  • Number Patterns: Number sequences, number puzzles
  • Figure Patterns: Rotational, symmetrical and inverted patterns
  • Logic: Relationship in pairs, deduction using logical reasoning
  • Spatial Sense: Solid figures, nets
