【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】英國升學新能力測試

由今年暑期開始,香港學生報考英國寄宿學校之前,有機會被要求考UKiset(UK independent school entry test)作為篩選申請學生的指標,與北美洲的SSAT(Secondary School Admission Test)類似。

UKiset為英國私立寄宿學校招收海外生新設的能力測試,通過測試,校方掌握考生的學習能力及傾向,作為識別考生的優次和學習興趣。

UKiset主要測試以下五項:

        1.以圖表方式,測試邏輯思維推理能力;

        2.以二維和三維圖像的調整,測試空間能力;

        3.文字推理,以文字解決問題的能力;

        4.量化測試,運用數學概念和技巧解決真實環境問題;

        5.英文測試,包括語法、語彙、閱讀理解、聆聽和創意寫作。

UKiset的五項測試皆由英國學術權威制定,其中英文測試由劍橋大學的劍橋英語(Cambridge English Language Assessment)提供;能力傾向等測試由GL Assessment負責;透過測試成績,較易識別考生的能力和傾向,方便協助申請人報讀合適的學校,亦增加學校與申請人的配對效率,毋須像現時的漁翁撒網般申請。

現階段已有百所排名前列的英國寄宿學校接受UKiset成績作為海外生入學申請部份,其中包括Charterhouse、Cheltenham Ladie’College、Eton、Headington、King's School, Canterbury、Queen Ethelburga's、Sevenoaks、Sherborne School、St.Peter's、Wellington College、Winchester、Wycombe Abbey等等。

透過報考UKiset,考生可選三所心儀學校接受其個人成績檔案,當學校收到相關資料後,會即時回覆考生接納或拒絕其申請。

當學校接納其初步申請時,考生才須繳付登記費用,簡化了申請學校程序之餘,也慳回不少申請資源及費用。

UKiset現時委託英國文化協會及BSL(英識教育)作為香港的考試中心。

英國UKiset項目負責人Jennifer Britton將於7月20日下午二時在尖沙咀美麗華酒店三樓,向香港家長及學生們簡介UKiset的內容及日後報考頂尖寄宿學校的情況,並可即時查詢及報考;有興趣讀友可致電31840152/61075222留位,座位有限,額滿即止。

#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.
