【頭條日報:寄宿學校攻略】GCSEs變天

有意讓子女去英國升學的人士,自然會特別留心英國教育制度的走勢變革,不難發現二○一六年這英國面臨鉅變的一年,教育系統亦有相當大的變動,繼A Level大改革之後,GCSEs也會有改頭換面的變天。

透過新改革,英國教育界想提升GCSEs水平,令內容更具挑戰性。其實革新已經開始在英格蘭及威爾斯推行,當中英文(語言及文學)及數學的新課程,老早已在二○一五年實行,二○一七年夏天就會初次舉行有關科目的新考試,而未來兩年間,新GCSEs課程會陸續在各科目推行。

若問這次GCSEs改革的主要內容是甚麼?最明顯者,莫過於內容會比以前加深,例如英國文學會增加有份量的作品,數學亦會加入一連串以前沒有的新題目,未來考生會面臨更大挑戰,需要更加畀心機。此外,大多數考試會改為在兩年課程完結時舉行。考試題目亦會傾向有更多論文形式的長問題,來取代短問答。在這GCSEs新制度下,每個考生要報讀至少兩個理科科目,除了實習科目如美術,舞蹈及戲劇,大部份科目不再設功課及監督評估。

最後一提GCSEs也會有全新評分級別,新制會分九級由9至1級,其中1級約等同舊制的A*,而4級則約相等於低至中度的C級。

一六年即將過去,英國這一年送走許多舊人舊事,這也是GCSEs最後會以A*-G作評分級次的最後一年。去舊迎新,如果想知新的GCSEs對學生報讀大學有甚麼影響,尤其會對有心想留學英國的海外學生帶來甚麼變動,請下星期繼續留意本欄。

#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.
