【Oh!爸媽】解構英國私校統一入學試UKiset

繼IELTS和ISEB後,UKiset成為了近年最多英國留學生應考的學術水平認可試。簡單講,UKiset是英國私立學校統一入學考試,由英識教育(Britannia Studylink)於數年前首間引入香港。即考一個試,成績獲二百多間私校承認,可以用來作叩門用。

 

有家長追問:UKiset是不是一定要考呢?講實話,並非間間私校報名入學時都一定要求有UKiset,何解?並不是UKiset不受英校認可,而是有些地區尚未有UKiset考試中心,學生想考而不能考。英校於全球招生,為方便那些地區的學生報考,才把UKiset成績改為「非必須」。但在香港,UKiset考試已十分普遍,在全港首間UKiset考試中心如英識教育(Britannia Studylink)便有過千名考生。如果閣下心儀的學校,是屬於Sevenoaks、 Oundle、Easton、Radley、Concord 這些競爭激烈的名校,UKiset是極有力的學術文件,考了一定有著數。根據過往經驗,報學校過程中,同學仔遲早會遇到有學校問要UKiset成績,所以UKiset並非一定要考,但考了卻可以令整件事順暢得多。

 

又有家長問:反正都要考,是否早考早著數?首先,UKiset全年任何時候都能考,但留意番,其成績有效期只有一年,一年內不要用來報學校即告作廢。另外,除非同學仔在Ascent Prep這間UKiset全球唯一認可的教育中心參加備考課程,課程完畢可三個月後重考,否則一般情況下,同學仔考完一次後,都要等六個月之後才可重考。

 

UKiset考乜?這統一入學試主要分兩大部分,一是作文,二是全電腦作答的推理測試,分三大範疇:vocabulary, mathematics, non-verbal。vocabulary考的是文字上的推理,同學仔平日有沒有多看英文書英文電影,這環節便可見真章。mathematics考數字推理,開正亞洲學生的強項。至於non-verbal則是以圖像去作邏輯推理。整個考試其實都是測試學生的思考方法和潛能,而非生剝死背的知識,這種考核模式在英國大行其道,不止是UKiset,ISEB及其他入學試都已經紛紛採用。

 

有醒目仔家長醒目地讓子女及時考了UKiset準備往英國升學,但收到成績單時卻看得一頭霧水䑃查查,一紙UKiset成績表究竟如何解構?

ISS

ISS這欄的數字,正是同學仔考到的分數。值得注意的是,此數值並非以一百分為滿分。同學仔的表現,應該要跟旁邊兩欄的U.K. National average 及 U.K. Independent School average,即英國國民的平均分及英國私立學校的平均分作對照比較,才能真正反映其水平。

 

NPR


同學仔與同齡應考的學生相比表現如何?NPR的數值顯示出他在所有考生最弱(1)至最強(99)之間的表現排名。

 

ST


同學仔的成績其實在ST一項最一目瞭然。三大範疇均已以9分為滿分,像圖中這位同學,我們一般會統稱他這次考到的成績是477。

英國的學校通常不會明文列出入學要求分數,不過以我經驗,每範疇達6至7分,基本是一般學校的最低標準。如想入Oundle、 Concord、Charterhouse這一流學校,當然愈接近九分機會愈大,不過這也不是「阿媽係女人」的必然,校方也會作額外的考慮,例如學生年紀愈細級別愈低,學校對分數的要求可能便愈富彈性,反而會更看重同學仔學術以外的成就,個性及志向等。另外對於海外學生,部分學校也會顧及他們英語能力較本地生弱,即使Oundle這等名校也可能會接受799,899的成績。


CEFR level


這一欄列出同學在英文入學試 Cambridge English Placement Test (CEPT) 的表現,並採用Common European Framework of Reference of Languages (CEFR) 的評分制度,評級由A1的基本水平至C2的傑出水平。

 

拆解了UKiset成績表,家長應該甚麼都睇通睇透吧?錯,原來家長手上的,是只給家長的版本,另外一學校版本,會直接送到報名學校,家長無緣過目。這學校版本會將同學仔這次UKiset考得的分數用來預測他/她未來在GCSE及A level等的表現,讓學校作取錄參考,也可成為日後栽培培訓的指引。此外家長版看不到的,還有同學仔的作文。此文不會獲考方評核,但會直接送到學校,讓學校從中更了解考生的性格想法,也可能作為取錄的一個門檻。

 

最後想總結一句,其實學校收生,也不只是一個分數的數字遊戲。校方亦會非常重視推介書、面試等。就算同學考了UKiset,有時升學顧問如果懂得因應學生的成績去present予學校,對校方的決定也會有相當的影響。

#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.
