【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】英國升學成績解讀

解構英國寄宿學校的中六公開試成績非單觀其A*-A或A*-B百分率的排名優次,更重要是仔細觀察其個別學科的成績級別分布、學科考次,以及3-5年內學科的成績級別分布趨勢以及整體成績分佈百分率的趨勢等等;將之擬選修的中六科目比較各校的成績別分布是否合理,如此才算解讀的有效方法;當然成績以外的元素各有不同,譬如學校地點、中六學生數目比例、寄宿生比率、海外生比率、校園大細、各項學術設施、活動設備等等,可按個人取向而選擇,不在今回的討論範圍。

上回以較極端優異成績的Cardiff Sixth Form College作為例子未必是最好的分析,今回以科技及科學著名的Oundle School及香港學生熟悉的Headington School的作為解構成績比較的例子。

在全英A-Level排名榜上,Headington School排名四十三位,共有一百三十人考A2,取得A*-A佔約六成八,Oundle School則排名五十四位,共有二百零三人考A2,取得A*-A的佔約六成四,以取得A*-A百分率來說,兩校成績相近;但逐一學科比較兩校則有另一個角度的分析;假如以數學、生物、化學、物理、經濟、歷史、英文等較普遍的學科,大概可知其所長、增加對學校成績的印象。

        學校/Oundle/                    Headington

   考生數目/A*/A/B/C/D/E/            考生數目/A*/A/B/C/D/E/

        生物/46/8/12/11/6/6/3                  生物/31/8/5/6/8/3/1

        化學/61/15/13/22/7/2/2                化學/42/9/18/8/4/3/0

        物理/50/15/1015/6/1/3/                物理/18/3/7/8/0/0/0

        經濟/40/15/14/8/2/1/0                  經濟/29/4/15/8/2/0/0

        歷史/52/15/17/11/6/2/1                歷史/11/3/5/3/0/0/0

        數學/98/34/35/17/8/3/0                數學/62/24/25/7/5/1/0

        英文/49/13/18/15/2/1/0                英文/27/4/11/8/4/0/0

論生、化、物三科,以A*計,Headington生物較佳,化學以Oundle較好,物理也是Oundle較好;以A*-A的百分率計,兩者截然不同,相互對調,生物以Oundle較好,化學、物理以Headington百分率較佳;箇中原因是Oundle的物理考生人數比Headington多超過一倍,Headington只要保住A級成績比A*多三幾名,比率自然高企。

再看經濟科,Oundle成績的A*、A*-A、A*-B大幅拋離Headington;另歷史,考生人數差別近五倍,但Oundle歷史在A*級別還好過Headington,只是跟物理情況一樣,Headington考生少,只有五名考獲A級已在A*-A的百分率比Oundle較佳。事實上,Oundle歷史成績真不弱,再看A*-B,Headington是100%。數學的考生較多,比較也較公平,A*及A*-A的百分率相差不遠。英文情況跟物理及歷史成績本來一樣,但今次A*及A*-A的百分率皆是Oundle佔優,A*-A反映Oundle英文成績真的比Headington好。

假如AS及A2選修四科,擬選化學、物理、數學、經濟,則應明顯選Oundle。選生物、化學、數學、歷史,可考慮Headington,只是Oundle這四個學科也行。總的來說,愈分析得仔細,愈有印象,又何需排名榜。

        Cardiff Sixth Form college(CSFC)的入學處代表MarkBruce將在十二月十八日(星期四)下午七時正主持升學講座,解讀英國A-Level成績,並解構CSFC何以在A-Level成績排名長踞榜首;《頭條日報》家長及同學可透過WhatsApp61075222登記,座位有限,額滿即止,《頭條日報》中五學生優先,請先在WhatsApp申明,有意在講座後面見MarkBruce,可帶備三年成績及有利證明,詳情可致電31840152查詢。

#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.
