【頭條日報】600字定生死

申請全球頂尖專上院校,諸如牛津、劍橋、常春藤八大等等,皆需要撰寫約六百字的個人陳述以及一、兩封強而有力的推薦信。

        

個人陳述必須簡潔,字字珠璣;但如何煉成?

        

首要謹記三個概念,一是了解院校用甚麼角度取錄學生;二是認清自己位置,有否獨特之處以及與眾不同;三是自問院校憑甚麼取錄你。

        

撰寫個人陳述之前,憑上述三個概念,按圖索驥;頂尖院校會透視申請人將來對社會以至對世界是否具影響力,換另一個角度,院校取錄申請人要的是打造未來超級校友;他們寧取錄獨特且具天賦條件的申請人,別以為是學校足球隊隊長、同時是校刊總編、也是歌唱比賽冠軍、並常參與社區義工服務、且成績是排前列1%內就一定獲取錄,其實乃美麗的誤會,也流於表面;院校取錄的重要因素是申請人內裏是否熱誠、對事情專注以及明白社群之間的倫理,同時希望申請人具獨特能力,優於其他申請人,所以撰寫個人陳述毋須逢好事必提,凡獲獎必講,喋喋不休,查實只要有一、兩件事能反映個人夠熱誠和具備獨特能力便是,以課堂內外的學術、活動、體育、藝術或社區參與來舉例已可。假如還認不清自己有甚麼獨特、有甚麼條件,你能考入頂尖大學的機會必減一大半,這跟成績優無關係;個人陳述寫完第一稿之後,再反問院校為甚麼會取錄你,你或需要反覆思量是否應申請。

        

至於推薦信,別選單是讚許你的老師,最好請初中階段已認識你的老師、輔導主任,或甚至校長,頂尖院校要的是長期對申請人認知的推廌信,信內評語要中肯,千萬別一面倒地讚,所以宜請曾跟你有比賽、活動、學問研究等經歷來撰寫推薦信的老師,謹記首要是初中已認識你;其實找老師寫推薦信,比推薦信內容更重要,千萬別本末倒置。(二之二)

#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.
