劍橋大學預科的必勝之處

2007-2008年間,A-Levels制度正面臨艱難時刻-學分通漲以及學習制度備受質疑。此時,劍橋大學國際考試委員會(CIE)正靜候良機,舉辦大學預科,成為A-Level以外,高中生追回學業進度的一個選擇。


 
2008年,劍橋大學國際考試委員會提供劍橋大學預科,目標為學生培育大學所需的技能,如做研究、獨立思考和解難能力。劍橋大學預科資格經過長時間討論,包括老師、大學及學科組織,最終衍生出獨一無二的A-Level的取代品。委員會將分數分為九級,更仔細分辯學生能力。學生重讀也有更嚴格審查,而課程大綱亦著重提升學科知識。


 
大學預科的優勢在於有25個深入教學的主要學科,視乎學校規定。香港家庭最好先知道學校提供甚麼學科,切忌誤以為學校甚麼都教。一年的自選科目短期班亦可成為學生申請大學的一部份。


 
兩年大學預科期末的一次性考核,除了以研究和獨立思考為基礎,大學預科資格亦將A-Levels和IB課程的好處集於一身(A-Levels考核亦逐步趨向一次性)。學校開始了解大學預科和A-Levels的混合有助他們挑選在每個學科範疇中較高水準的學生。Oundle School就基於這種想法,提供化學和歷史給大學預科生。Oundle的校長 Charlie Bush說,為大學預科而設的科目在學校中受師生歡迎,師生除了喜歡學科外,在學業上也創出佳績。


 
在規模龐大的中六科目選項中,學生宜精打細算,選擇對自己較有利的科目。實際上,如Mr. Bush所言,在Oundle的例子中,科目主任須「小心審視A-Level課程在未來能為學生提供的,並與大學預科作比較」。Mr. Bush相信未來有更多科目會走向大學預科。


 
對學業的嚴格標準,一次性的評估和大學預科的課程內容廣受英國Rusell Group成員大學歡迎,足見大學預科和A-Levels課程混合是大勢所趨。

#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.
