【頭條日報:寄宿學校攻略】GCSEs的抉擇

上周講過GCSEs的改革內容,今日講講它對入大學的影響。

不少人覺得,GCSEs距離大學有遙遙長路,但其實升學路有時牽一髮動全身,GCSEs的選擇和成績,對晉升大學的前途有頗為深遠的影響。

先講選科。已知將來入大學想修讀甚麼科目的同學,我會建議他們根據各大學對該科目入學要求,來揀GCSEs科目。不少大學科目會列明報考時須具備甚麼GCSEs科目及最低成績,這是同學們的重要參考。

假如同學對入大學讀甚麼科目仍未有頭緒,我就建議他們GCSEs時挑選一系列範圍廣泛的科目,最好傳統與創意科目兼備——前者是傳統學術學科,後者反映個人興趣。大包圍之下,將來做起抉擇來,就有一定保障。

至於成績,勿忘今年GCSEs與A Level同時變天,由於AS Level的成績已不計算入A Level內,連帶關係下GCSEs的成績對入大學更顯重要。GCSEs今年將難度提高,所以要入好的英國大學,現在由GCSEs便要加多把勁了。

明天是平安夜,在英國是一年最重要的日子之一,大家酣醉飽食之餘,也會回顧過去一年的功過得失,並為來年立下目標。我把這裏恭祝所有讀者聖誕快樂,新年進步——特別是英國升學的同學仔,英國教育在二○一七年必有許多新景象,我在此向你們送上祝福與「十卜」:加油!

更正:上周《GCSEs也來變天》提到GCSEs的新評分制度,原文「新制會分九級由9至1級,其中1級約等同舊制的A*」,應為「其中9級約等同舊制的A*」,特此更正。

#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.
