【信報:DSE出路】翻身良機
「我阿仔/阿女考完DSE沒精打采,做家長可以點幫佢?」
 
這數日,我不斷跟家長講:DSE考試已經接近尾聲,同學仔考成如何自己心中一定有數。考完試漏哂氣,可能真的考得不太理想。家長固然不應予以苛責,到底考試一時得不到最佳發揮是常事,且也有點運氣使然。不過反而最重要的是,為他們認真籌謀一下萬一真的失手時,有何策略性部署。
 
不少同學本身久仰英國頂級大學的盛名,亦都雄心壯志想入一些競爭激烈的科目,如果在DSE一役慘遭滑鐵盧,的確濕滯,因為意味要為理想作出讓步,甚至要放棄夢想。
 
「真係無彎轉?」家長驚惶失措。
 
「當然有,肯投資時間再接再厲,總可以再向理想邁進的。」我答。
 
讀一年A Level課程
有些同學會趁此機會選擇讀基礎課程,可惜恕我直言,能夠以基礎課程入到頂級大學的熱門學系,始終不是多數。同學仔如果再次嘗試也未能如願,時間學費不計,信心再受打擊,這才是影響前途的致命傷。
 
假如同學仔本身甚有大志要入名校名科,而又願意投放一年時間的話,我的真心建議是讀一年A Level課程。有何好處?這些課程最終會經UCAS途徑報大學,換言之,同學仔會與英國所有本地學生在公海決鬥爭入大學之門。公海決鬥的好處是所有學府與科目都是中門大開,只要成績夠標青,入牛津、入劍橋、入其他英國羅素集團的大學都不是問題,讀醫讀Law也不是可望不可即的夢。所以如果有遠大志向卻不幸在香港一時失手,用一年時間去主攻3個科目,可是個「鯉魚翻身躍龍門」的良機。
 
特別一提,如果同學的DSE成績不算太差,報讀一年制A Level課程更可能得到高達學費五成的獎學金,減輕家長負擔。
 
「咁、咁、咁……我哋要點做?」
 
一字記之曰:快!四個字講完「唔好猶豫」。皆因英國的一年A Level課程報名旺季在6月和7月,遲一點到了8、9月份都已經要望門興嘆。所以如果覺得這是個可行選擇,行動一定要迅速。5月28日星期日有個相關升學講座,大家可以來了解下一年制A Level課程,我到時也會為大家解答各種疑問。

#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.
