【明報】【赴英升中】入學試UKiset全面睇 陶傑分享應考秘訣

UKiset(UK Independent Schools Entry Test),即英國私立學校入學考試,亦被稱之為中學版IELTS(雅思)。近年愈來愈多頂尖傳統英國寄宿學校視UKiset為收生評估的一部份,有些更會直接以Ukiset作收生標準。香港一直對赴英升學的需求很高,近年學生報考UKiset的人數亦愈來愈多。對於這個統一入學收生試,才子陶傑亦表示:「UKiset統一管理海外學生的成績,這個統一化無論對學校或者學生來說,都是一件好事。」

什麼是UKiset?

UKiset入學試專門為9-18歲以非英語為母語的海外學生而設,主要測試學生三方面的能力:英語 (Verbal reasoning)、數學 (Mathematics)以及邏輯 (Non-verbal reasoning)。學生可以利用UKiset考試成績報讀5間私立寄宿中學,若額外付費可以再報考多兩間學校。

和以往逐間學校逐間報的方法完全大不同,Ukiest最大好處是一次測驗便可報讀多間學校,省卻不少時間和人力物力。

考試成績於試後3至5個工作天透過電郵發出,申請人毋須等一段冗長時間就能獲知結果,亦是Ukiest的另一方便之處。學生可於英識教育升學中心、英國文化協會或其他UKiset的官方考試中心應考。

應受性:

由2014年起,英國的私立學校將UKiset考試成績視為入學申請門檻的一部分。例如Concord College、Epsom College、Wellington College等名校就要申請人必需提交UKiset成績。近年香港報考Ukiest的人數愈來愈多,在2017/18年度,大約1800名港生赴英讀書,當中就有約750人報考了Ukiest。香港已成為全球第三大的Ukiest報考中心,可見對於一個小小的城市來說,學生赴英升中學的需求卻是很高。

陶傑:鼓勵學生報考UKiset

對英國教育和文化瞭如指掌的才子陶傑,在一個分享會上指UKiset這個統一中學試比以前方便得多。他亦鼓勵學生報考,「我贊成學生就算不打算去英國讀書,也一考無妨。藉此測試自己的獨立思考能力,看看自己達到什麼水平」。

陶傑補充,香港考試制度是「惡毒的」,像是行一個考試攞分制度,大人設計題目是要刁難學生多於真心測試他們識多少。

反觀英國考試制度反璞歸真,只是很單純地測試學生能否學以致用。

UKiset並沒有Pastpaper,學生不能操練試卷,要怎樣才考得好?陶傑分享,學生應多從日常生活入手,「我經常鼓勵學生,有時間就多點看像《黑暗對峙》 這樣的電影,不要只看《Transformer》。」他指從英國文學電影、書籍和電視劇中學習,就能不知不覺學懂當中的英語邏輯。陶傑舉了個例,在《黑暗對峙》中,邱吉爾跟他的秘書說 “I am in need of you” 而不是 “I need you” ,這簡單句子就顯示了兩者地位的高低。將日常生活所學累積成為自己的知識,應考UKiset就能更得心應手。你是well-trained或是well-brained,一個考試就能決一高下。

#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.
