Gifted Education Programme
The Gifted Education Programme (GEP) was introduced by the Ministry of Education (MOE) in 1984. The GEP screening & selection process occurs every year, where Primary Three students take a series of tests to gauge their ability and stream them into the Gifted Education Program.

All Primary 3 students, except those who opt-out, will take the first round of admission tests commonly known as the Screening Test. Students identified based on the Screening Test results will be invited to participate in the second round, the Selection Test. Based on the Selection Test results, selected students will be invited to join the Gifted Education Programme, usually by November of that year.
Selected students will then be transferred to schools offering the GEP. GEP classes are designed to fit the students' learning ability, and may cover subjects in greater breadth and depth.
