【頭條日報:寄宿學校知多D】裝備自己 赴英升學

以下兩個案,作為讀友升學的反思:個案一:Sarah在香港的國際學校讀IB(DP),首年IB成績強差人意,預計加上TOK只有39分,難有機會考上心儀的英國劍橋大學。

劍橋在其網頁說明IB成績多是40-41或以上才有機會被取錄,而且三科AL要具備776;Sarah思索其他途徑,曾見學兄修完一年IB後,同樣成績欠佳轉讀A-level,最後獲劍橋青睞;Sarah一心以為如此安排或有轉機,只是她未及細想學長或早有部署,譬如早已兩手準備自修A-level,然後逐個Modules報考,最後輕鬆考取A-level4科A*級成績;劍橋因應先前的AS和A2 Modules成績級別予以面試機會,學長也許還具備其他方面的優勢及長處,所以Sarah不能只看個案表面,就定轉到坊間精讀班專讀修A-level,以優異的A-level成績提升考入劍橋的機會;事實上,以這般安排能考上劍橋微乎其微;蓋劍橋除審核成績外,還會查察過去學習進程,以覆核其在學術上的能力,加上會考慮申請人是否充份了解將來在劍橋遇到學習上的挑戰等等;總不成劍橋會單憑A-level成績就決定是否取錄吧!當然成績也重要,但決非成績愈優異就愈有把握,劍橋已設定了A-level A*A*A,IB40-41,DSE三個選修科5*5*5的界線,只要達到標準,再加上個人條件才行。

Sarah或捉錯用神,其實只要由原校發證明IB能達40分或以上已有機會,毋須轉校轉制,一旦轉校轉制,劍橋必質疑考生的學習進程和能力,令情況更壞!

個案二:Tom前年完成中五,準備考DSE,目標是考倫大英皇學院與港大合辦的兩地五年制法學課程,修畢後同時獲兩校法學學位,而且可選擇入讀兩地法學專業證書課程;Tom評估自己成績之後,預計較難透過DSE同時獲兩校的法學取錄,定立即到英國讀兩年預科考A-level,必有助提升入兩校機會。

幸運地,Tom的成績及個人能力實在不錯,獲得全英A-level成績排名榜第一的Cardiff Sixth Form College在最後階段取錄;入讀後發奮圖強,今年同時被兩校有條件取錄,Tom不諱言:幸好及時決定負笈英國,多讀一年,以較有系統的學習方法及態度朝向目標,並按照大學的入學要求裝備個人的能力,如今邁出成功的一小步,證明當日決定沒錯。

英國教育是先求裝備個人能力,以學習生活為先,成績分數為次,有了正確學習態度,優異成績自然來。兩個個案南轅北轍,孰得孰失,關鍵在求學而非只求成績!

英國第一位名校Cardiff Sixth Form College校監Yasmin Sarwar將在七月二十日至二十四日親自來港在喇沙書院主持考入牛津、劍橋及世界各牌大學研習班,適合剛完成中四、中五,以及正修讀IB或A-level學生報讀。現提供額外學額,有意可即致電31840856。

#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.
