【頭條日報:赴英升學談】 入大學 慎選科

踏入六月,成績預計平平的DSE生理應及早部署升學路,尤以中文、通識科較沒把握的更要思索下一步出路;現下坊間有不少海外升學資訊,只是在升學資訊氾濫的環境下選擇最適合的出路從來不易,譬如修讀一年制的基礎課程會擔心日後能否升入心儀的大學和課程;又假設勉強升上大學而不理會有否能力應付,更缺乏認知的學科等等。

入錯大學選錯科的個案比比皆是,有硬着頭皮修完學士學位,心有不甘,躊躇再多修一個學士學位;有在大學修畢文學,卻又想做營養師的工作,更有修畢商學士,想在輔導工作發展,最離奇是修完法學,才發覺喜歡運動及健康科學;今日錯選或非不得已,日後修正則極為費力。

不少外國的高中畢業生喜停學一年,到處遊歴,涉獵不同文化,發掘潛能和培養興趣,藉以規劃升學路;可惜香港學生沒有gap year概念,只求盡快完成學業,取得最佳效益;是耶非耶?各有論述吧。

筆者認為成績處於入大學邊緣的學生適宜停一停,想一想,也許到海外進修一年課程,才決定升學路也不遲,就當是gap year模式吧;倘選擇修一年制A-Level又或基礎班也無不可,一來可在不同的教育模式學習和生活,重新上路,二來可以銜接升入海外大學或甚至回港升大學!

筆者推薦英國的Queen Ethelburga’s College(QE),此校今年開始提供一年制的A-Level,讓DSE生有機會轉換另一學習模式,日後可掌握更寬闊的升學路,QE乃全英頂尖學校,成績不俗而設施一級。此外,全英A-Level 排名第一的CardiffSixth Form College 亦歡迎DSE學生報讀,但必須入讀兩年制的A-Level,此校能考入牛津、劍橋和醫學院的百分率達百分之四十。

恰巧兩所學校代表均在今個星期日(六月十一日)來港面見學生,考核學生的整體能力、有意參加考核,又或有興趣跟他們面談, 可WhatsApp 9153 2926查詢。

#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.
