【信報】認真處理升學瑣碎事(一)

踏入八月,好多家長都會問我,子女行將九月去英國入學,出發前有何大事項要注意。我通常會答就當去一個長旅行就夠了,無甚大事要處理。英國寄宿學校有政府嚴格監管,關顧計劃亦無微不至,所以大事上確實是可以放心的。反而有很多瑣碎小事,越瑣碎越有難度,又容易走漏眼,我倒覺得有需要提點一下。

 

我留英的年代,落地没甚麼手續要辦,所以九歲的我都應付裕如。現在留英同學當中小至八九歲大有人在,可是落地後的程序卻比以前複雜得多,家長可能要出手相助。

 

現今持學生簽證,到埗後要領取一份形如身份證的文件名BRP。同學如果沒有agent代辦簽證,坻英後就要去最就近的郵局領取它。可是,初來甫到人生路不熟,哪裡是最近的郵局可能一時攪不清。為將事情簡化,家長可網上申請簽證時,在系統上填上 ACL code (Alternative Collection Location),更改為學校地址(學校一般會自動提供ACL code),那麼BRP就會直接寄到學校。需知同學務必要在坻英後一個月內領取BRP,故改個code雖是小事,但辦妥了就能省卻大麻煩。

 

英國寄宿學校的傳統,是宿生會用一個名trunk的大木箱,鎖存自己的日用品。同學當然不會由香港搬一個沉甸甸的trunk去英國。如想尊重傳統,家長大可預早在網上訂個trunk直送宿舍。不然,把帶去的行李喼作木箱用也未嘗不可。但別忘記,英國三個學期都有長假,同學一年可能回港幾次,如果赴英時只帶一隻大喼,寄宿時又將此喼徵作trunk用,放假回港沒行李箱可帶,就手忙腳亂了。因此赴英時,要不多帶一兩個喼,要不家長買定三兩個紅白藍膠袋,就可作trunk港式平靚正的替代品。

 

連紅白藍都出動,聽上去真夠婆婆媽媽。但經驗告訴大家,留學生涯就是充斥這些瑣碎小事,事雖小,若如果沒認真處理,後果可真會煩死人。

【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。

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.
