I was a student in Singapore’s Gifted Education Programme from 2000 to 2004, from when I was 10 to 14.
I found parts of it to be incredibly enriching, and other parts of it kinda strange. I have some unresolved issues left from my experience there.
I still sometimes wonder how I’d have turned out if I never went to the GEP at all, or if I had stayed the course.
