【頭條日報:赴英升學談】英UCAS計分法改革

查看全英大學排名榜,不難發現入學成績標準項目,是以被取錄的學生平均成績轉化為UCAS分數計算,以最新的一六年全英大學排名榜為例,沿用由英國官方高等教育統計局(The Higher Education Statistics Agency)提供的一三至一四年入學成績,化為UCAS分數數據計算。除了顯示整體UCAS平均分數外,尚有六十七個學科課程的UCAS分數。以劍橋大學為例,整體入學平均標準的UCAS分為601分,卻不代表取得601分就能考上,個別學科課程平均入學UCAS分數或更高,譬如醫學,刊出來的UCAS分數就要627分。只是最終UCAS分數歸分數,尚有其他的入學因素足以影響成敗,UCAS分數只能作為一個參考便是。

UCAS分數將在一七年改革,應是配合英國GCE A-level新的考試制度,A-level由過去Modular轉為Linear形式,意謂由本來修讀兩年制A-level期內可考不同程度組合的學分包括AS而取得一個綜合成績,改為修畢兩年課程才只考一個終期試代替,AS再不計入A-level成績內,相信會影響日後大學發出有條件取錄的形式和方向。

新UCAS計分統整了A-level、IB、Cambridge Pre-U Exam原來的計分差距,新計分對Pre-U Exam不利,Pre-U Exam的最高級別D1和D2級成績皆計56分,跟A-level A*級同分,跟現行的D2計145分, A-level A*只計130分,由15分的差別,收窄為零分;現時香港的DSE的5**級可獲145分,相當於Pre-U Exam的D2,同時也高過A-level的A*。

現階段尚未公佈新的UCAS分數跟香港DSE成績如何比對,但相信5**級將評為56分,跟A-level A*、Pre-U Exam D2的相同,新的UCAS分數放諸DSE及Pre-U Exam成績是否比舊的蝕底,答案不言而喻,不過請放心,英國大學會有一套新標準去調節!

#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.
