Is Cambridge PET Test useful for S1 Application ?

For secondary schools like St Paul Coed, St Joseph and King's College. Is a "Pass with Merit" in PET helpful in S1 application  (i.e. good selling point) ?

I just want to gauge my son's chance getting a place with these schools as the candidates for these schools could all be very good in English and a "Pass with Merit" in PET means nothing..

No hurt to put down but the school academic results are the most important, and then the achievements in any extra-curriculum activities,etc.

這說法是錯的!

小學的英文考試只能考到小學程度,結果得出一大堆 A,搵個大學英文教授去考同樣試題,佢都係只能個 A。這種考試能找出尖子嗎?

所以,一些較高水平的公開試成績,比學校的校內考試,更有篩選作用,更具參考價值!── 如果那主持收生的傢伙是有腦的!

不盡同意,其實學校要知英語水平,在面試時,一開口便知龍與鳳啦

大有疑問!

700 張表,700個英文 A,其中 只有 200 個面試額,點選?

Dear ksnghk & moondisc,

Court! 各打五十大板﹗
你哋兩位講的嘢同樣重要。
中學選生,會先看細路仔的證書,然後再用面試去測他們的水準。所以有能力又有條件的家長當然兩樣做足最好啦。
無謂呦,牛年未到,不要頂牛。

五十大板,應由閣下自行享用!不知閣下是吃多了煎堆油角,塞了心眼,還是醉酒上網,連三幾句中文都看不通!

My son got the same result as he was in P5, he got chances for interview for some elite schools, the weighting from the PET is minimal.  The most critical is academic results, ECA, and then enrichment programs, e.g. PET, EPGY etc.

各位家長,
我的姪女(今年五年級)剛拿了Cambridge Flyer 的成績,他拿了14個盾,請問:
1)他是否應該再考多一次,拿取15個盾,以便六年級考英中
.2)他的老師叫她升班考Cambridge KET,請問再讀上去又會有什麼用昵? Thank you!

To be honest, I don't think Flyer will be of any use for S1 application. The reason I post this question is because I noticed that over 90% of candidates for the PET exam are primary students (based on their height)  and PET  is two levels higher than Flyer (Flyer ->KET->PET).

I too doubt that PET is also useless as there are too many children can pass this test with good result.

可否講清你的「統計」呢?
日期?
考場?
人數?

:) :) :)

My obervation is not very scientific. As I said just based on their height. My son took the PET exam in Wanchai (near Morrision HIll swimming pool) last November.

Also, the exam fee is quite expensive ($800+).  I don't think many secondary (S1 or S2) school students will take this exam unless they want to switch to a different school.

我只是想交流觀察所得:

日期:相同
考場:相同﹝應是全港唯一的﹞
人數:14 個課室,每室約 25人
年齡:有小學生,但多半是初中生﹝從衣著舉止﹞

其他參考;同年 5 月同地點的 KET 試,整體人數相若,但有約 60個穿學校運動服的考生,是天水圍的翁X中學。

:D :D :D

無可否認這些公開試成績都是可以某程度上表達學生的英文水平。 有小學生家長用來申請中學用, 也有初中學生, 因為他們的直資學校比較新, 沒有其他公開試成績共家長參考, 可以這些亦是讓家長增加信心, 讓好成績的孩子報讀這些直資學校的。 個人意見。
