【信報】英國升大學準備

做升學顧問這一行,一般學生到英國寄宿學校適應之後就會甚少同我聯絡,所以每當同學暑假返香港前來探我,我都會份外興奮,把握時間傾吓偈。獨立及有準備嘅大多數,其實無論係日常生活,人際關係定係報讀大學方面其實都已經處理妥當,但每年亦有數以百計同學着急地約見要求幫忙選科及填妥申請大學程序,所以暑假我特別忙。

 

其實英國的寄宿學校一般都設有升學就業部門,以協助學生鋪謀前路。不過大部分升學就業部作風都很本土。以我經驗為例,儘管我當年成績科科A,部門建議我報的大學,卻多是排名三十以外的中游學校。有人解說原因是因為寄宿學校做法一向保險,跟我們香港人冒險進取毅然不同,亦有人認為是因為當年本地人(政府津貼學費)被取錄機會比外國人(付較高學費的)低,從而學校升學部門主任習慣給予較保守的建議,令海外生可能錯失良機。

 

我平日對英國寄宿學校有讚無彈,但論對海外生報大學過程的支援,有學校事實都有改善的空間。

 

香港同學去英國,揀中學不必睇排名,但選擇大學方面排名就是重中之重。原因太多,先不談排名直接與學校學術研究資源有關,從而影響師資及設施。容許我更Hong Kong style膚淺地講句,將來回港謀事,公司的人力資源部仍然會用排名榜來標籤學歷從而聘請。

 

就著這些揀大學報大學問題,一文章實難深度分析竅門,所以無論是否我當年送你出國入讀寄宿學校的,只要你有任何疑問,或想有個 second opinion,可以電郵給我,我答應必定會一一回覆,畢竟當年我亦走過不少冤枉路。

 

想今年九月入英國大學?

 

劍橋牛津已經不必想,頂尖名校如 Imperial College, Warwick, Durham, UCL 等,熱門科目如經濟、藥劑、法律,學額基本上已經向隅。即使尚餘少量,取錄要求亦會更加嚴苛。

 

老土講句,明年請早。

 

下星期我會同大家解讀如何及早為2019年報英國大學作籌備。

【Oh!爸媽】名校2018 IB 驕人佳績巡禮

International Baccalaureate(IB) 前星期放榜,全球今年有來自153個國家,超過 160,000學生應考IB。制度以45分為滿分,今年度的全球平均分是29.8 。

 

英國愈來愈多學校以IB取替A-levels課程,又或者兩制並行。lB成績理所當然成為改制是否成功的指標之一,所以大家都屏息静氣等待結果。幾間名牌私立學校今年在lB都表現卓越,值得我們來恭賀一下。

 

有六百年歷史的老牌名校Sevenoaks School,是英國第一所將A-levels課程完全改為IB的學校,堪稱IB改革的先鋒。走得比人前, Sevenoaks 的 IB 也行得比人好。今年全校有215個同學仔考lB,全校的平均成績高達39.5,比全球平均分高出達10點之多,當中半數以上同學有40分以上,甚至有12位考獲45分滿分,力保 Sevenoaks 作為全英首屈一指的IB學校的江湖地位。除了成績斐然,不知還可以怎樣形容。

Wellington College自有IB課程可選擇以來,一直被公認是全英把lB課程辦得最成功的佼佼者。今年學校有78人考IB,平均分也是令人眼前一亮的39,保持了五年來平均分達39的紀錄。有兩位同學考獲滿分,九位得接近滿分的44分。挾著如此無敵成績,無怪同學都入到全球顯赫大學,共有五人入到牛津,六人考到倫敦帝國學院,五人升倫敦政治經濟學院,十一人晉身UCL 校門。Wellington除了出了個做校長做到被封爵的Sir Anthony Seldon成為國家傳奇,學校傳為佳話的還有每年學生爭崩頭甚至300人爭一個位現象,證明是有原因的。

歷史攸久的名女校Cheltenham Ladies’ College,以提供英倫淑女教育而聞名遐邇。今年有46同學考IB,平均分有驕人的38。當中四成以上女同學考得40以上的標青佳績。此校由2014以來,已經有168人考IB,五成以上同學有40分,而歷屆考過的18個學科,以拉丁文成績最好,果然是儒雅古老的傳統女校代表。

另一知名女校、位於牛津區的Headington School,連續八年都在IB放榜日都舉校歡騰,因為同學的成績優異。學校自09年在A Level以外提供IB選擇,成績一直名列全英頭十大。今年共有31位同學應考,全校平均分昰38.2。一位女同學成了滿分狀元,亦有三位得接近完美的44分,全校四成五考生有40分以上佳績,難怪英國羅素集團的名牌大學、歐美亞洲的頂尖學府,校門都為這些Headington女同學而大開。


Headington School

 

男校方面,Bedford School也傳出喜訊。今年三十六位應考的男生,考得34.6平均分。接近六成在高等程度科目奪得相等於A*或A的7分和6分。此校自2002年開始行IB制,狀態愈戰愈勇,結果愈來愈令人興奮。


Bedford School

 

報道過今年IB的佳績,IB的優越處我也不在此多贅,但值得提醒的是,在英國能把lB行得好的學校寥寥可數。以上幾間私立學校能在短短數年將IB推行至全校報捷,就是實力的明證,教育質素之高不容置疑。家長和同學仔如果對這些學校有任何查詢,或有報讀的疑問,不要遲只要快,來跟我們傾下。

Successful Case

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.
