【頭條日報:赴英升學談】英港學生選科大不同

英國學生對於在高中選科作為考入大學的理念跟香港學生在概念上有很大分別。香港學生選科多以主流學科其中如生、化,物、經濟、歷史、地理等為必然選擇,為要考入熱門的大學及課程;一些所謂閒科,諸如旅遊和款待、科技與生活、道德與宗教、音樂、體育、視覺藝術等都被標籤為主流選修科能力不夠的學生選作為DSE選修,為求一張較亮麗的成績表,也方便日後升學;絕少學生會放棄有把握取得優異成績的主流選修科,改而修讀以興趣為先的閒科。

英國學生則不同,他們對A-Level的閒科跟主流學科予以同等地位,A-level閒科類別多元化,有近百個學科選擇,讓學生充份發揮個人能力及興趣,單是設計及其相關學科已有二十多項,如應用藝術和設計、應用表演藝術、藝術和設計類別內共有六、七個項目如攝影、圖像傳意、圖像設計、紡織等等;此外,還有舞蹈、環境學、媒體傳意及製作、音樂科技、戲劇、悠閒及旅遊、人文學、健康及社會關懷、心理學、哲學等等多不勝數。傳統的寄宿學校在主流學科之外,會提供十多項另類學科,也會因應個別學生的要求,經評估達到一定水平而開設。亦有寄宿學校特別提供某些具備配套及條件的學科,將其專業化,令學校有較獨特的元素,因應同學生需求。

英國大學課程如醫學、工程等只會取錄持有指定某些A-Level學科成績的申請人;不過,大部份課程是容許以任何A-level學科申請;牛津,劍橋等名牌大學對於主流科也好,另類閒科也好,基本上是全方位的整體評估,目標是取錄具潛質可全面發展的學生,所以英國學生在A-Level選科並不會側重於主流學科,反而他們認為具另類學科能力更凸顯優勢。名牌大學對於具備特殊能力的學生如在音樂、舞蹈、戲劇、設計方面有高水平的表現必定刮目相看。

最佳的例子莫過於以舞蹈課程水平達國際級數的英國女子寄宿學校AbbotsBromleySchool(見圖),此校鼓勵學生以另類的學科如舞蹈、音樂、戲劇、馬術結合主流的學科,考牛津、劍橋以至皇家舞蹈、音樂的專門學院;結果證實非常成功。

筆者有幸邀請AbbotsBromleySchool的副校長AnnJohnson親自來港解構英國A-Level考試改制後,如何選擇適合的學科來考A-Level,並分析英國大學對A-level各學科包括非主流學科的成績要求;同場亦邀請了英國主要的考試主辦機構Edexcel分析《改革中的A-Level概況》,講座詳情如下:

#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.
