【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】應對英國考試制度改革

英國考試制度改革,首當其衝是英國官方的資歷及課程管理機構(Ofqual)將A-level考試由Module模式改為Linear模式,意謂以往容許逐個課題選考而最後計入整個學科成績改為修畢兩個學年後一次過考,導致每年一月的A-level考試取消,另外AS-level也不再計入A-level成績內。改革帶來兩個較大影響,一是學生的考試壓力倍增,昔日可以分兩、三次不同課題的內容考核,變成一次性;二是過往大學對於申請人取錄與否多取決於AS成績,如今AS不計入A-level成績內,大學或只能從申請人的GCSE和校內成績以及其他能力和表現作評估。學術界普遍認為大學將會以較嚴格的成績給予申請人作為有條件取錄元素,以保障整體的入學新生質素;另方面,學生在沒有AS的成績評估之下要配對個人成績與大學要求的成績標準或帶來衝擊;尤以成績中庸的學生似在五里霧中摸索出路。

幸而英國A-level改革對在香港選擇考IAL(InternationalAdvancedLevels)的學生不受影響,緣為英國其一的官方考試局Edexcel雖然因應英國Ofqual的改革取消了一月在英國的A-level考試;但在英國以外的地方不受Ofqual監管,可維持以Module形式考試;並繼續提供一月份的考期,讓身在香港的學生可以順利過渡,並容許在英國讀A-level的學生可以趁假期回港考IAL,多少紓緩了改革帶來的考試壓力。

Edexcel考試局二○一六年在香港提供共十個IAL科目,包括會計、生物、商業學、化學、經濟、法學、數學、進深數學、純數、物理;二○一七年將再增加多四科,分別為英文、英國文學、歷史、心理學。

IAL跟英國A-level資歷一樣,大學認可,其AS程度可計入IAL成績,加上只計考試分,不計習作,仍然可用Modular模式,具靈活及彈性。無論香港DSE生,英國修讀預科學生,皆可在港報考,一來測試個人實力,二來可沿用來申請香港、英國以及世界各地大學。報考可透過香港考評局以及ITS,詳情可逕自搜查Edexcel教育局的專頁www.edexcel.com/ial

#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.
