【信報:寄宿學校攻略】A-level結果揭盅

A-level今年首逢改革,課程內容及試題難度都有改變,難怪大家都屏息等待上星期放榜,靜觀新試制對廣大考生前途會帶來什麼影響。

 

成績下滑

改革與否,A-level成績下滑已不是一日兩日的事,全英(包括英格蘭、威爾斯、北愛爾蘭)承接過去4年的跌勢,得到最高級別學生的比例連續5年都在下滑。當中以威爾斯最失威,整體攞A*人數由去年的7.3%大跌至6.6%,威爾斯男生取A*比例更由7.8%插水到6.7%,跌幅之大叫人側目。

 

眾多科目中,數學連續兩年成為最多人報考科目,英文居亞,心理學近年人氣急升,開始逼近第3的生物。另一邊廂,創意科目及現代語言的考生人數持續減少,已引起教育界關注。報考A-level音樂的人數比去年跌8.8%已算小兒科,美術與設計考生銳減三成三的數字才真令人觸目驚心。現代語言如各歐洲語言的考生買少見少,報考法文學生的跌幅便達6%。

 

有趣的是,英國學生對學歐洲話熱情減退,但歐洲學生對英國教育愛慕之心卻不減。今年歐洲學生得到英國大學取錄的人數達26800人,增長一成一,締造了歷來最高紀錄。

 

至於大家最關心的英國本土學校的大學入學率,則是佳音處處:儘管全英中學離校人數整體比去年下跌2.3%,然而入大學的人數卻破了紀錄!今屆A-level產生了超過42萬準大學生,比去年上升了3%,當中18歲獲大學取錄的,更達201000人,比去年多2%。讀大學不是年輕人的專利,18歲以上的考生入大學人數亦在上升,而25歲以上成熟學生的大學取錄率比去年更多出8%。

 

榜已放,今年A-level考生這階段的大局已定。但對於許多遙望A-level、以負笈英國大學為終極目標的中學生及其家長來說,奮鬥可能才剛開始。給大家一個小貼士,9月份有許多不同級別的英國中學會來香港舉辦招生活動,然而各位千萬不要只被Shrewsbury、Oundle、Wellington、Harrow、Badminton等赫赫有名學校嚇傻眼,其實很多學術排佔二、三線中學,長線可能才是鋪築往英國名牌大學青雲路的關鍵,箇中玄機如何,下星期和大家參詳一下。

#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.
