【頭條日報:DSE出路】DSE絕地反擊

「阿仔話考DSE失手,叫我打定輸數喎。」「點可以咁快打輸數呀?」 我衝口而出。

DSE考試已接近尾聲,同學仔考成點心中有數。考試到底如上戰場,很講臨場發揮,有時也講些運氣。同學如果真心覺得考得不太理想,家長不應予以苛責,卻也毋須打定輸數鳴金收兵,反而應該及早為下一步作策略性的部署。

DSE失手,最直接影響當然是入不到心儀的大學及學科。有同學會選擇投放多一年時間來讀基礎課程,這當然不失為一條出路,但如果本身雄心壯志想入英國頂級大學的競爭激烈學科,想透過以基礎課程躋入門檻,機會是有,但就相對困難好多。

「咁係咪要放棄入名校神科嘅理想喇?」

「梗係唔係,背棄了理想誰人都可以?!」

其實同學如果願意為入英國名校的理想投資一年時間,我就大力推薦他們修讀一年制的A Level課程。這些課程讓同學用一年時間去主攻三個科目,然後經UCAS途徑報大學。這條路徑的優勢是,UCAS猶如出公海與英國所有本地學生爭入大學,公海上所有學府與科目都是中門大開。只要成績夠,入牛津、入劍橋、入其他羅素集團大學去讀醫讀Law也不是遙遠的夢。如果有壯志雄心可是在DSE不幸失蹄,這真是個翻身的大好機會。

一年制A Level課程還有一個好處,就是同學DSE成績如果不算太差,有四分或五分等,一年制A Level課程很多時設有獎學金,有時甚至是學費減半,大大減輕家長在這額外一年的負擔。

「等我慢慢考慮吓⋯⋯」

「呢位家長,不能慢,時日太快 ,無知的小孩一晚長大!」

大家要注意,英國一年A Level課程的報名旺季在六月和七月,蘇州過後八、九月份都可能已經無艇搭,所以行動要快。如果對這類課程有興趣,下星期日有相關升學講座,我到時還會親身詳細解答大家的疑問,協助你的子女作最理想的戰略部署。想知更多可致專線9152-3695。

#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.
