【頭條日報】非讀醫學不可?

近月接到起碼十個訴說考不上醫學的故事,部份原因乃DSE成績差少少,部份是透過非聯招不得其門而入,箇中泡湯的原因除成績級別外,多是經過整體評估後不被青睞;整體評估夠強可以包括對醫學的認知和熱誠不足,個人思想尚未成熟等等,雖或成績達標,只是香港的醫學院更重視考生個人整體能力。

  

是否非讀醫學不可?敢信半數是有保留,章某常常質疑何以公開試狀元,十之八九要選擇醫學,是否能考入醫學而不選擇入讀是浪費?章某手頭有個個案,不嫌跟讀友們分享,希望能給予考不上醫學的考生有多少啟發。

  

李同學在香港的學校考完GCSE後負笈英國升讀中六,考A-Level,準備回流升讀香港的大學醫學院;可是中六首年考AS的成績不夠優秀,在自我評估後相信難以獲香港的醫學院青睞;雖然仍有機會投考英國的醫學院,但鑑於畢業後倘回港考專業試的標準界線亦難以拿捏之下,決定放棄,沮喪了一段短時間後得到同窗的鼓勵,嘗試去改變升大學的主修方向;期間得悉A-Level 修讀生物、化學等學科,上大學可以選修心理學或相關課程;於是在中六的第二年開課後趁周末到大學上一些心理學的體驗課程,箇中趣味盎然似是發現了新大陸,於是透過UCAS報讀心理學著名的英國大學,其中包括了劍橋。李同學的GCSE成績優異,AS其實也不錯,撰寫的個人陳述甚有條理,終獲劍橋面試機會,原來劍橋個別學院的面試形式略有不同,他報的學院只需要兩個約二十五分鐘的面試,分別討論相關生物、心理學以及社會心理學的議題,他發揮自如之,後獲得劍橋的有條件(A*A*A)取錄,最終 A-Level考試達到條件的成績獲取錄,李同學入讀劍橋後充份體會到焉知非福的彥言;藉此勉勵考不上醫學的,退一步海闊天空是也!

  

今年有意報讀醫學的考生,再問自己是否非讀醫學不讀,若不,值得恭喜,因為你終於有所領悟,將來的路不再是由公開試成績掌握。

#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.
