in 1984, the Gifted Education Programme is an exclusive accelerated academic
stream in Singapore, which only takes in the top 1% of students from each year
with outstanding intelligence. At Primary 3, students sit for the Gifted Education
Programme admission tests, where they go through 2 rounds to filter out the top
1% of the cohort. This programme recognises students of higher calibrea to
benefit their academic development and maximise their potential to take the
academic lead into the development of the future.
