Abstract: 
This study hypothesizes that intellectually gifted adolescents
in the Gifted Education Programme (GEP) in Singapore who had greater
preference for perception would tend to perform less well academically
owing to an inability to focus and a tendency to be easily distracted
by elements in the classroom environment. Subjects were all secondary
one GEP pupils in three independent schools (N=239). Academic
performance was captured in terms of overall end-of-year examination
results. Results of linear regression indicate a significant but
negative correlation between academic achievement and perception
scores. Implications of the study, together with contributions from
teachers of the subjects, are discussed with respect to the perceptive
trait of the gifted pupils.
