Hi AN Chan,

Thanks for all your sharing that's really helpful and useful to me.

Do you think BA is good for writing?

I have a silly question.
After you took the pre-IB course for one year, if you change your mind, can you switch back to the NSS course?
I know a lot of kids who couldn’t get good result from CE exam this year. They switch to NSS F5 and will take NSS exam in F6.

What will be your comment to study and attend GCE O level and GCE A level in Hong Kong? My girl’s school offer a choice between NSS and GCE A level exam two years later.


Thanks.

Yes, I see BA is good for writing skills.

IB & NSS have different curricullum and teaching methods, that's why we need to study them carefully to make a better choice.

Most IB students plan to study aboard and I assume your daughter will study in overseas university. If that's the case, worst come to the worst, I echo Peremum's suggestion - IGCSE + GCE AL. My rationale is IGCSE & GCE AL relatively easier than NSS toscore better grade and she is no need to be seen as loser in IB.

Back to the initial question - Why IB & not NSS?

If you or your daughter have uncertainty, stick to NSS. Play safe.

Generally speaking, GCE system is easier for a HK student to get good grades, while University (esp. UK & Canada) view them on par as HKCE & HKAL.
So, my friends who have kids in middle/high school of NSS (my own kids are yet too young for that) normally plan to take the IGCSE at F.4/5 & AS/AL at F5/6, as a safety net.

Dear AC CHAN and Peremum,

Thanks for the valuable advice and sharing.

My girl is in F2 right now.
Her school compulsory asks them to join GCE O level at F4. After that they will provide two years education on between GCE A level and NSS.

They didn’t offer IB course but if we get good result in O level, it’s not difficult to apply IB course in other schools (same as students nowadays)




For university, I will choose the best one among HK, UK or Canada according to her examination result. It’s a hot topic for all parents to compare GCE A level and NSS.

I would like to know more to make best choice for my girl.

St Paul Convent has similar arrangement, IGCSE -> either NSS or GCE AL.

It's a good move for students.

You need to check with different schools for IB admission requirements. For SPCC, you are no need to have IGCSE O-level, you only hand in your school results with ECA results for application. They will shortlist for written exam and interview, she will apply at F3 and start with Pre-IB and then IBDP.

Other IB providers may be IS, ESF and some DSS schools. If you can afford, change schooling next year for IB (MYP,IBDP), no need to go for O-level and wait for exam results.

Thanks for your advice.
It’s quite difficult to ask her to change to other school.  We have the chance last year but she really doesn’t want to change at all.  She wants to stay with her friends (10 years friends) . I think the only possible to change is after GCE O-leave or at F6.

My son had the same situation in primary school. He got a golden opportunity to go to an EMI primary school (英文小學) at P3, he turned it down because he wanted to stay with friends.

He is willing to take IB instead of NSS, because pain of no change greater than pain of change. He is really frustrated by the local curriculum.

Your girl's school has good arrangement.  For an above average girl, IGCSE at F4 should not be a problem.  Then you can decide.  At least for the coming few years, I am sure that Universities in HK & overseas will feel more confident with results from GCE & IB.  At least they know from experiences what they are getting.

AC Chan,
Sometimes, I can't force her to change to other school as she has a lot of friends and the environment is fine.
One more question, when we apply local university, do you know if A-level will be in the same line as IB?

Peremum,
Most of parents in senior form will choose A-level instead of NSS in her school.
I attended A-level exam and I fully understand what is it.
I try my best to understand more about IB and NSS to make better choice.

I shared some comments in post 1 (JUPUS vs Non-JUPAS) related to the question you raised. Also refer to the third post reply #3 (教育王國 » 保良局蔡繼有學校 » 關於IB的疑問  Post#3), a lecturer or professor shared his comment and observation, which similar to my friends comment.

University Admission Officer may prefer IB, as the standard and training are matched with university learning environment, like essay, lab work, presentation etc.

I also attached some links within BK which are related to IB program.
