【信報:升學專家分析】成績不足KO前途
上星期寫到我小時候被香港的教育制度判決為「無用」及「垃圾」,靠著去英國升學才能易地重生,引起了一些迴響。許多人都感慨在香港讀書壓力太大,挫敗感太強,有時一個公開試的成績便足以論定成敗,令學生失去信心與壯志。
 
我馬上想到,還有幾個月,DSE便會放榜,是否又會令一批學生自信心大受打擊,叫他們年輕的人生頓然失去方向?
 
我其實真的很想用自己的經歷,跟公開試考得不理想的同學打打氣。我留學英國最深刻的體會,是原來我並不是生來天資愚鈍無藥可救的,原來在適合的學習環境及機會下,我也可以茁壯成長。我辦海外升學公司,某程度也是想本地的同學明白,本地教育制度以外還有海闊天空的世界,有著各種不同求學的可能性。所以大家千萬不要為一次半次考試成績欠佳便鑽牛角尖。
 
找到展翅一片天 
近年我常常推介的國際基礎課程,便正符合了這海闊天空的概念。這一類課程門欖相對較低,可以容納不同程度水平的同學,但它所能提供升學路之寬闊,簡直無出其右。事關這類國際基礎課程,不單突破了升讀單一大學的框框,甚至走出地域限制,同學畢業後可到世界各地的大學升讀,普天之下找到適合自己展翅的一片天。
 
以EF Education的國際基礎課程為例,同學畢業後不論是想往熱門留學地如英國、美國,或較少人前往的歐洲國家如奧地利、德國等,都能受到認可。前車可鑑,這課程同學的大學取錄率是百分之百,而且入到的大學也非寂寂無名之輩。92%學生入到第一志願的英國大學。來自港澳的同學,更有56%入到英國首30名大學。這樣理想的結果,反映了這類課程為切合學生個人興趣、才華及強項而度身訂造的做法,確實能令他們發揮出最大的潛能,不被僵化的制度所埋沒。
 
少年,如果你以為前途會被一個公開試成績而KO,你太年輕了。人生,根本就是要為理想去探索不同的可能。如果你也想知道開創自己升學路有什麼可能性,本月29日我將出席一項公開活動,現場作個人升學諮詢,到時我們來談一談吧。

#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.
