【香港01】UKiset成新興中小學版「IELTS」 助2千港生報讀英國名私立學校
Ukiset 全名為UK independent schools' entry test,由英國一家逾百年歷史的教育咨詢公司於2014年創辦,屬國際認可的考試證明,供9歲至17歲學童報讀英國私立中小學或寄宿學校,每次考試收費為295英磅,即約3千多港元。據其官網介紹,成績有效期為一年,考生可據其成績報讀5間院校,可選擇於成績出爐前或後揀選心儀學校,另可額外加錢增加選校限額。
 

以Ukiset報讀英國學校港生按年增2成

Ukiset創辦人Alastair Montgomery回覆《香港01》電郵查詢時指,2014年至今,已有逾2000名港生以Ukiset報讀當地私校,香港市場按年增加20%,不過由於機構僅提供考試服務,遂未有備存經由Ukiset成功考入各院校數字。

他又強調,Ukiset並非旨在驗證考生成績達標與否,而是與英國當地同齡學生的能力作出比較,以評測該考生融入當地學習環境的能力。接受Ukiset的院校同時亦會根據學生的興趣、音樂才能、運動及英語水平等,從而考慮其入學申請,故Ukiset並非唯一考慮準則。

Ukiset可發掘學童的解難及邏輯思維

英識教育創辦人陳思銘指,Ukiset 主要從非文字推理、數理邏輯、空間能力及英語水平等多個範疇向考生進行考核,大部份為選擇題,亦包括填充及作文,題型多變,不著重死記硬背,反有意發掘學童的解難及邏輯思維。

他指,不少在港就讀名校的學生於本地成續不理想,但Ukiset成績卻相當「標青」,「畀香港小朋友多一個選擇。」他指,Oundle、Epsom及Wellington等名校有考慮申請學生的Ukiset成續,當地已有約二百多間院校認可Ukiset成績,其中甚受家長歡迎的Concord College 更將Ukiset 訂為唯一的入學試標準,校方不設自家考試。

陳續說,完成考核後,家長及校方將各自收到一份成績評核報告,其中校方所收報告羅列考生,亦會預測該考生於英國會考、高考及IB試的成績數據,以便學校「揀蟀」,亦可方便日後因材施教。

 

陶傑:港教育模式扭曲

著名專欄作家陶傑指,英國教育模式著重獨立思考,要求學生融會貫通,可啓發年青人潛能及世界觀,他又指,本港教育模式扭曲,以僵化的考試作主導,兒童在此環境下成長,「只會有對教育嘅恐懼同抗拒。」

陶傑的長子現於英國讀大學,被問到會否送其15歲幼子前往英國讀書,他指不會限制或左右兒子的讀書選擇,「我個仔唔一定要去英國,如果佢對考古????啲好有興趣,大到好似李樂詩非去北極、南極不可,我一樣會鼓勵佢去北大讀書!」

Ascent Prep教育中心導師 Simon Whitaker指,UKiset 旨在測試學生的智商水平,「唔係淨係測試你嘅應試技巧。」,Simon任教的中心為Ukiset官方唯一認可的教育機構。

#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.
