【信報:留英專家分享】失敗只為行得更遠
DSE如果考得不好,同學和家長自然心情沮喪,這是可以諒解的。不過千萬不要讓低落的情緒延長,更不要覺得這樣一次的失手便足以論人生成敗。同學仔不能因這個挫折對自己失去信心,家長亦不要因而覺得阿仔無用、阿女無書緣而感到絕望,人生路漫漫,有時失敗所帶來的爆炸力可能激發更強的動力。
 
失敗,其實只為行得更遠。
 
典型失敗例子 
我自己在英國念預科時,一心想選的是建築系,豈料遭阿爸當頭棒喝:「建築要讀藝術又要讀物理,而且一讀7年喎。」我當時一聽到7年,就覺得時間太長被迫打退堂鼓。及後一心覺得自己英文好,讀法律好似好理所當然,也好彩被我考入法律系,可是讀了幾個月,我發現法律豈只需要英文好,這一科我讀得吃力也終究不是自己那杯茶,於是惟有轉科,最後才修讀了經濟。
 
現在回想起來,讀不上、轉科,當時的我何嘗不是典型的失敗例子?不過最後學業還算有修成正果的一日,經濟系順利畢業後,碩士亦修讀了政治經濟。回港後闖出了自己的一點事業,今日也幸運地擁有英國文化協會傑出校友的榮譽。一路走來,到回頭看時才明白,迷失的那段日子,跌跌撞撞中其實我學到很多東西,也令我整個人變得更硬淨,裝備了我可以踏上今日這條路。沒有昨日的失敗,就沒有今日的自己。
 
我身邊許多留學英國的朋友也有近似經歷,中六中七成績不好,彷彿注定這輩子要做losers,抱著置諸死地而後生的心態去英國讀一兩年書,但後來各人都發展得有聲有色,有的人做生意,有的人投身iBanking,今日都是大家眼中的人生勝利組。
 
所以話,人生中失敗真的不是問題,問題是有沒有在失敗中汲取教訓,有沒有在失敗中鍛煉出堅毅勇氣,有沒有被失敗打倒,還是在灰燼中化身鳳凰而重生。鬼佬話「If it doesn’t kill you, it makes you stronger.」,如果失敗沒有打倒你,恭喜你,你將會變得更強壯,能夠行得更遠。各位自覺今年在DSE失手的同學,心灰意冷時你要咬緊牙關為自己加油,從今以後,你會更強的!

#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.
