慎防UCAS個人陳述地雷

近兩個月正在忙於幫學生報UCAS。上文提到,UCAS的兩大罪是大頭蝦及刻意隱瞞。後者甚至涉虛報作假之嫌,罪名不輕。因此同學即使有不光采紀錄,也要如實填報,必要時最多用個人陳述來為自己申寃。

 

話雖如此,個人陳述區區五百字,是令你自芸芸衆生中突圍而出的一大殺手鐧,定當要字字珠磯,若真有需要用來解釋為何曾留班輟學未嚐不可,但都要點到即止。講到尾,個人陳述口風要正向,應表現出你的過人長處和成就,而非放大失敗和缺點。

 

有些同學警醒到陳述非要扼要不可,於是就以自以為最有效率的bullet points來表達自己: 我閱讀過的書、我最喜愛的電影、我遊歷過的地方,甚至用來列舉生平事蹟: 六歲做班長,八歲游泳冠軍,十二歲綱琴五級,十四歲參與港大中大諸樣課程......莫名其妙地開出各式清單。首先考官讀來乏味無趣,其次亦無助校方增加對你的認識。要緊記個人陳述最要緊是個人化,你做過甚麼不是重點,反而背後的原因和箇中的學習體會才值得花些筆墨來詳述,令你的個人更立體化,讓校方留下深刻印象。

 

重要事再講一次,個人陳述要個人,即是同學要用自己把口講屬於自己的說話。見過很多同學很喜歡引名人諺語,孔子曰乜乜乜 Steve Jobs話物物物,同學可能覺得借名人或偉人的口代言,道理說出來更具份量。唯獨關鍵是校方實在並不想知名人有甚麼話說,而是想知學生的見解意見,引別人名言警句實在意義不大,可免則免。

 

借名人偉人把囗行不通,更忌的是用別人的陳述來借花敬佛,即抄襲也。網上不難找到其他人出色的個人陳述,同學只宜拜讀,作為參考不妨,搬字過紙據為己有則萬萬不可。要知UCAS有防抄襲的應用程式,一經查出,報名必定凍過水。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
