【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】英國A-Level改革

英國A-Level(高考)將會在這兩年開始改革,主要的改革是廢除預科第一年考的AS,只用第二年的A2作為A-Level的整體成績。故此2015年入讀英國中六,便可能要面對不考AS,而直接在第二年考A2,作為唯一申請大學的公開試成績元素;不過現時部份學校尚有緩衝措施,讓學生在第一年預科考AS,但不會計入整體A-Level的成績;大學方面表示會酌情考慮AS;昔日AS是計A2的一半分數,日後則不計AS,只計A2;預期大學以A2作為取錄標準之外,還會視乎GCSE的成績作為初步評估,蓋申請之時尚未有A2成績,只能以學校的預計A2成績,以及GCSE的實際成績作為發出有條件取錄信息給申請人。

英國A-Level改革現時正進行得如火如荼,本來預計2016年A-Level的數學以及伸延數學有新的考試內容,但因應要求,順延一年在2017年才正式推出;另2017年A-Level考新的化學課內容仍然未經學術審評認可;上述兩個例子反映A-Level改革仍在修補,估計在今年暑假之前理應準備就緒。

香港學生準備在2015年負笈英國升預科讀A-Level可照舊在第一年預科修讀四個學科,完成第一年後仍可選擇考AS,只是不能計入A-Level成績內;據悉,部份學校仍保留AS舊制,容許學生考AS,同時以雙軌的單元和線性形式考A-Level,作為緩衝期的措施,學生完成一年之後會有個中期指標,給予學生增刪考A-Level的學科。

有評論認為A-Level改革的首階段,大學不會完全置AS成績於門外,個別仍會考慮。不過,A-Level改革後,大學在入學成績要求會有大幅更新,部份前列排名大學的成績門檻,或比以前要求的更高。

章某特別邀請了英國AstrumEducation旗下的三所私立學院,包括ChelseaIndependentCollege、DuffMillerCollege以及LansdowneCollege的總監MichaelParris在一月二十二日(星期四)下午七時在港主講《英國A-Level改革對學生帶來的影響》,另英國A-level考試主辦機構Edexcel代表同事亦會出席講座解說《改革後的A-level概況》;《頭條日報》讀者可優先報名出席講座,費用全免,座位有限,請從速透過WhatsApp61075222報名或致電31840876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.
