【信報】英名校面試問題層出不窮

上次講到英國各間名校各自有不同的文化、歷史、方針,招生要求亦因校而異。然而正如世界經濟論壇指出,創意、批判性思考、認知彈性這些軟實力將於2020年成為全球最搶手技能,英國各名校自然會更著重招攬具備此方面潛質的學生。要考驗軟實力,面試就成為招生程序中的關鍵。

 

面試問題校校不同,同學要因應自己所報學校作準備。例如Sevenoaks這全英IB獨佔鰲頭的學校,曾經問學生: 如果你流落荒島一星期,會帶哪三樣物件?這類題目根本没有對錯,你答帶水和生火工具當然有分,天馬行空答帶多啦A夢,只要解釋得通亦無不可。

 

又例如,King’s Canterbiry這間全英最古老之一男女寄宿學校,面試問題可能是平淡的上星期做過乜,亦可能一劈頭叫你講個笑話嚟聽下。原來校方覺得選學生就是選性格,面試三言兩語,同學性格都露出端倪了。

 

在我眼中,Oundle School是全英最出色的男女校,所有年級學生幾乎都被問: 閣下為何揀Oundle? 校方正是要試探同學對Oundle的誠意及了解。又,Oundle是男女校,同學也会會經常被問捨男校/女校而取男女校的原因。

 

至於一眾女校,特別是頂級如Badminton, Heaington, Cheltnham Ladies’ College等,就問過同學: 誰是你最欣賞的女性知名人士?學校當然不是真心想知道誰是你偶像,重點是同學能夠闡述欣賞原因,便為圓滿。

 

有一個題目去年出現在許多名校面試: 考官隨手拈來三個字,要同學用來講故事。聽起來超高難度? 但同學只要表現出有經過深思熟慮,故事講來有起承轉合,就達到期望。

 

各位,面試問題層出不窮,但同學只要摸透不同學校的面試風格,卻明白學校骨子裡要考驗的,是邏輯思考、批判思維、豐富創意及出色表達能力等,同學答問題時緊記這萬變不離其宗的竅門,應付面試就能得心應手。

【信報】英國有名校但無Top School

回想起創業前,曾收到一張宣傳單張,上面寫上「英國名校周 Top School Event」彼時任職老師的我甚感疑惑,後偶遇名單上 Charterhouse 的校長,談起此事,原來他跟我也一頭霧水,首先他不明白為何學校會「榜上有名」,大家更疑惑所謂 Top School 中的 Top 究竟何所指。

 

我們的困惑,其實不難理解。選香港小姐基本要求美貌與智慧並重,需要同地區,同時間在單一評判團面前一較高下。但一間學校如何年年稱 Top?是比較成績、比較歷史、比較設施、比較寄宿人數抑或比入學競爭的慘烈度?

 

名單上,有 Abingdon 這牛津區知名男生日校,不知以何標準和 Bristol 區名寄宿女校 Badminton 相提並論。另外,這間優秀日校又是怎樣與傳統全寄宿學校 Uppingham School 並駕齊驅

 

BrightonCardiff Sixth Form 和協和書院近年成績飛躍騰升,可是校內滿是中國人,若論接受英倫 well round 教育,跟 Top都沾不上邊。耐人尋味的還有 Warwick School , 此校學生逾千,但唯一的宿舍內全是香港人,它又憑甚麼準則與 Harrow 這間英式全寄宿男校齊名?

 

Harrow 是全英最顯赫的貴族學校,竟跟為中産階級而創立、標榜貼地教育的 Lancing College 扯在一起,已叫人摸不著頭腦。英國最古老的學校 King’s Canterbury ,歷史和教育方針上與 Bromsgrove School 的前衞進步背道而馳。兩校能結下同榜之緣,也真令人費解。

 

說這些學校是 Top,也需解釋一下遊戲規則,選十大傑出也有入圍要求吧?

 

講到尾,Top 的定義太含糊。名單上每間學校都各領風騷大有不同,故家長絕不能用同一標準態度去看待,更重要是報讀這些學校,就更要因應各校的特殊要求作調整入學策略。

 

設計「名校周」海報的,其實也需要多謝你,沒有你們也沒有英識教育。我會繼續努力在專欄逐一介紹這批知名學校,好讓大家了解它們的獨特之處,從而能度身訂造報名攻略,你明知你上的是中國好聲音,需要展現歌喉,你總不會選擇你擅長的魔術表演吧。

Ruthin School, located in a small town of Ruthin, far away from the city distraction, leading me to concentrate in academic. Frankly, I spend most of the time in studying, and prepare myself in every Saturday test. It is demanding especially not being the smartest student at school, meaning that I need to spend more of my leisure time I used to have to study. On the other hand, I have met a lot of friends and schoolmates and they are mostly come from the Asian countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, and most of them from China, which is also the largest proportion of students in the school community. During the weekends, I habitually go to Tesco after Saturday test and then eat dinner with friends in common room or in town. Most of the time, I visit the Chinese restaurants either getting takeaway or dine in. On Sundays, school usually organises school trips to Manchester, Liverpool and Chester. During half term, in the order of safety, we are not allowed to stay outside school unless we are staying in with our parents or guardians. Furthermore, we are not allowed to have relationships with opposite sex in the matter of negative influence in academic. Drinking alcohol in school is prohibited and student who is being caught in disobeying school rules will be expelled unless the principal is being generous and suspend student for week(s). Indeed, trying to break the school rules bring a huge consequences and at the mean time to ensure students obeying the school rules. To sum up, my overall experience in Ruthin School is pleasant and hope striving my best in A levels.
