面試官要甚麼?好奇心與獨立思考的重要性

面談是寄宿學校入學試重要一環,為了讓孩子一枝獨秀,為家人和自己增光,都會大花心力為面試備課、練習和鑽研技巧。
 


最近和Bilton Grange Preparatory School校長Alex Osiatynski談及英識炙手可熱學生- George希望升讀Wellington College的事,使我回想起練習面試和準備入學試的一些事。


 
首先,學生必須清楚寄宿學校的文化。Wellington 重視獨立思考,對於在填鴨式教育下成長的香港學生可能是一大難關。


 
最近一次和Osiatynski的模擬面試中,George得到的評價是「願意自由表達自己的意見」。實際上,這種性格應該由孩子小時候開始培養,家長責無旁貸。


 
前瞻性思維亦是學生升讀寄宿學校的關鍵之一。預備校會為學生提供一系列的面試準備班,並於每節準備班後針對性指導學生,改善面試表現,這正正就是Bilton Grange的特色。


 
而對George,Osiatynski還有以下評語:「回應時間和眼神接觸一次一次地改善。」這是預備校對學生的細心和進步。欲升讀理想學校,這都是必不可少的原素。


 
George被問及的是:「為何選Wellington?」面試官想知道的是George有否對Wellington的歷史和運作進行資料搜集,並了解多少。Osiatynski在對話中另一樣想知道的是George會否談及時事,並評估他能為Wellington帶來甚麼。
 


在George的模擬面試中,他展示了自身對商業、企業知識和供應鏈的認識。他亦談及香港的歷史,鴉片戰爭和最近南中國海發生的地緣政治問題。


 
知識和演繹方法都是關鍵,而學生應好好考慮和發掘自己熟悉的新聞和史實,好讓面試時好好發揮。
 


Osiatynski的建議?Wellington想見到George的「獨立思維和組織能力,自行總結論點的能力」。而香港學生最需要的,是放低焦慮,開放思想,才能在人生中走前一步。

#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.
