條條大路通大學- Clearing

英國A-level考試放榜在即,預科生開始進入緊張狀態。高考成績將決定學生未來路向。放榜成績未必盡如人意,有人歡喜有人愁,有人考入第一志願大學,也有人收不到offer,焦急得要命,對前路一片迷惘。

 

而英國的UCAS系統中,有一制度名為Clearing,專為那些得不到offer的學子們而設,讓他們有一個take 2的機會考入心儀大學。

 

Clearing的道理很簡單,即是向學校叩門。UCAS派位後,一些大學學位未能完全填滿,剩下的空缺將撥入Clearing的次輪派位之中,並供沒有offer的同學報名。這些空出來的offer和沒有offer的學生自然成了perfect match。

 

流程亦非常簡單。放榜當天,Clearing系統隨即開放,一直到九月底。學生在UCAS網頁得知自己的派位結果後,沒有offer的同學們會見到報考狀態為「You are in Clearing」或「Clearing has started」,並得出屬於自己的Clearing number。同學們可以定時上UCAS網頁更新有關學校剩餘學位的資訊,並選擇自己喜歡的學科,直接聯絡大學校方查詢有關空缺,視乎需要約會面談。

 

需要Clearing的同學有兩種。第一,是成績未如理想,發放成績後收不到offer的同學。他們可以直接向一些收生要求較低的學校查詢剩餘學位,作第二次嘗試。而另一種學生,則是我。話說當年A-Level成績比預期高,能夠「挑戰」更好的大學,但UCAS卻填得保守,成績遠超第一志願的要求。

 

結果我拒絕了offer,透過UCAS系統得知University of Nottingham還有學位空缺,立即致電查詢,報上成績後約到學校參觀加面試,全程不足兩星期,就收到了offer。

 

所以放榜無有怕,考試雖然得一次,但入大學機會有take 2。別讓考試成績成為太大心理壓力,盡情享受試後的輕鬆時光。有任何疑難,Samuel is always here,隨時PM,因為我經歷過,幫到你。

#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.
