Visit the website of various universities of your choice and read carefully about the admission requirements, in particular the School of Architecture.

This year, I shared with many friends the importance to attend the admission talks, they will go with their kids.

We missed some 2nd priority talks last year, we will split into 2 teams to gather sufficient info to finalise the subject selection in IBDP, like languages and SL vs HL......

Mattsmum

After chatted with two admission offers in HKUST from Biz School, the blog's estimation is valid.

For BSc QF and Econ & Fin, streaming after 1st yr. For BBA, streaming after 2nd yr. If my son have a choice, he should pick other universities.......

Under NSS, first year of university program more for general/liberal studies. Eventually, your major will be decided by general studies and HKDSE.... It's crazy of our education system....

This is similar to the US system. Students study a year of Liberal Arts before choosing their subjects.

My boy had a wonderful summer with different attachments and exposures in 2011. He may join more attachment and shadowing in different industries next summer to expand his options in programs. Then he needs to focus on academic achievement...... better predicted grades - 36+

He also stood for election in student council as one of the cabinet, finally, they lost, I wish they can learn something from there. Of course, he becomes an office bearer of another school organization and committe members of two more societies..... those capacities made his profile more presentable in admission.

Thank you for sharing. Your son is definitely a bright and smart boy.


Annie123, thanks for your flattering remarks, that's not my intention to share our experience here.

**********************************

Around summer time, my son made a friend through fb, eventually, he is my son's senior and claimed - works in a MNC. He shared his experience with my son:

1. The senior observed most of his classmates or colleagues have better career advancement, they are more receptive to take parents arrangement in career exploration. His rationale is parents can arrange that must be more educated, well connected and more future looking, which the children can't have at that age. The children willing to take the golden opportunities, they may have a jump satrt.

2. He aslo recommended my son to read a few books written by Malcom Gladwell, my son borrowed them from the library and finished them in summer.

************************************

His computer is in the sitting room.

I won't discuss how to control or handle our kids fb activities and security issues.

兩大(三大則不清楚)裡頭有不少學者都以研究跨國生活出身(果然是大學, 什麼東西都可以研究),定期會與不同科系部門的人灌輸相關知識。不記得港大還是中大, 商學院的高層同時又是負責做跨國學生學術聯繫的, 有次他跟大學裡研究跨國生活經驗的學者, 還有一所big4的HR見面時, 兩人不若而同說, 每逢面試, 總有一大籮人說自己很有國際視野, 但細問卻只可以像寫cv般將自己的經歷複述一次和淺層的感受, 完全不impressive. 這是數年前一名與他們共事的研究員跟我談起, 可見大學/見工面試, 應該不只要求面試者能透露自己的不同經歷, 而且還要求更多的吧? 我覺得可以試找出那些學者究竟是什麼科系, 略略看一下他們的文章, 就可以更了解究竟大學裡頭, 所謂國際見識其實是什麼一回事。

Global exposure definitely more than just visits, seminars, friends........ reflection, actions, value system, higher level think are preferable.  
My intention is used examples to trigger parents to stretch their boundaries, I didn't try all of them. I need to be humble in this aspect, but I will rise the hurdle as time goes by...... I won't expect a 16 years kid's compare with a professor in a very in-depth but narrow scope. I would like him or other kids have exposures in whatever means first, then in-depth....... How to internalize those experience are up to him, with our appropriate guidance?

對 家長從旁協助是需要的, 有時子女顧住飲食說笑忘記了其他的意義, 當然, 不能和學者比擬, 但到現在我仍摸不著頭腦, 究竟什麼是很膚淺的感受, 而象牙塔裡的學者究竟期望學生可以有什麼得著....

Ha ha, a good question......... Anyway, it worth a reference paper, it counts more than teaching and something useful in our views.
