【Oh!爸媽】面試真義

老生常談,入學面試不是考成績,亦不是評核學生有否潛質勇奪straight-A。成績好固然重要,但講明是面試,當然要見人而不是只見成績。

 

合作多年的學校收生主任提醒:不要當面試是考試,最重要是學生夠主動、思想開放、樂於分享己見,以及對學校有熱誠。例如考官會給學生一首詩,或一段節錄自書本的段落,要求學生抒發己見。當中除了反映學生的批判思考和應變能力之外,語文和處理壓力的能力同樣是考核的重點。

Oundle School國際收生主任Caitriona Redding表示,希望讓學生在面試時「自然自在」(feel at ease)。學生要留意面試官提問的用意,例如Miss Redding會在面試開始時發問一些簡單問題或個人資料,增強學生信心,才進入面試的正題。對於一些比較緊張的學生來說,有助他們冷靜下來,並慢慢組織自己,留意用詞及肢體動作等。

 

Uppingham School收生主任Charlie Bostock亦指出,學生應好好配合身體語言,分享自己的興趣、展示熱情和開放的一面。熱身過後,同學們漸漸進入狀態,就可以開始展現自己的長處,表現健談的個性。Mr. Bostock常在面試中問到:「甚麼讓你與眾不同?」(What makes you different?)。學生若要突出重圍,令人眼前一亮,就要想想如何用「與眾不同」的方向回答。

 

此外,學生可以主動提出open-ended 問題來顯示對學校的興趣,反過來引導考官。例如與其問「學校一星期有多小時間踢波?」這種直接了當又沒有發揮空間的問題,不如在問題前加點調味:「可否形容一下學校的運動情況?」

 

私立校的世界競爭大,家長亦喜歡選擇最selective、最「挑剔」的學校,這些學校的waiting list已排到2020年,Radley College就是其中之一。Radley的Senior Master Harry Hanmmond曾作分享,Radley的收生準則是學生能力要全面,學術成績好,對世界時事有認識,有批判思考,會辯論議題並提出己見。而Mr. Bostock則指出,Uppingham希望學生是個"people person",即有團隊精神、領導才能、並能夠和其他人打好關係,好好溝通。

 

英國私校出名對學生soft skills有重點培訓。因此反過來說,學生亦應自我評估,考慮自己有何經驗與人際技能,足以獲得學校青睞?

 

私校以外,在職場上亦然。求職者可以留意一下,現在的僱主除了在意你的成績和CV夠不夠「靚仔」外,也非常著重soft skills,這些技能在競爭不斷的社會總有用武之地。

#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.
