【明報專訊】去年獲英國《泰晤士報》選為全英排名第一的私校Cardiff Sixth Form College,今年首次來港舉辦考入牛津劍橋攻略研習班,教導港生寫個人簡介,及如何應戰面試,5天課程收費共1.38萬元。

校方期望明年再辦時,可為部分清貧學生提供學費半免或全免資助。

5天收1.38萬元

Cardiff Sixth Form College提供兩年制預科課程,每年學費、宿費連考試費,約37.7萬港元,該校去年的高考生,有94%應考科次獲A*或A級(相當於本港舊制高考的A至C級),畢業生中有11%入讀牛津或劍橋大學、15%入讀倫敦皇家學院、25%入讀倫敦政治經濟學院。

該校約一成學生為港生,Cardiff國際關係總監Mark Bruce表示,港生不傾向主動舉手答問題,報讀大學寫個人簡介時,亦只填基本資料,如「我有學鋼琴」,卻不會突顯自己如何出眾,「大學不是要機械人,要見到你對報讀的科目有熱情」。

Cardiff與英識教育在港合辦的入名校研習班,將於7月底舉行,接受14至17歲的學生報名,名額200個,中四、中五學生優先,教導報名大學須知、學習技巧、如何藉課外活動裝備自己等,周日起接受報名。

1.38萬五天收費,不用最低資格,有教無類,即系人都收,學生素質未夠,要學的還有十八項武藝,點止面試甘簡單,濫收濫教,是不負責任呃錢行為。還開「大吉利是價」一生發,當香港人水魚乎?

如果教育人士非常等錢使,提議去菲律賓綁架崋人,贖金盤口三百萬不難的。

Annie,
唔係係人都收㗎. 話明學費係$13,800, 你試吓比少個"賓"比佢, 睇吓佢會唔會收你?  依D係大生意嚟嫁. 200人, 每人收$13,800, 盛惠$276萬. 5日搞掂, 乾手淨腳又無手尾, 依班學生仲會即傍, 唔會兩頭望, 又唔駛討價還價, 睇嚟好過去菲律賓綁架華人喎. 學校仲可以係依200人中收生, 這班人5日都比得起$13,800, 壹年學費$37.7萬一定無問題啦. 一石二鳥, 何樂而不為? 報道話佢嘅畢業生中有11%入讀牛津劍橋, 當然我唔知佢全校有幾多人申請啦, 不過對於這些課程, 大家都係唔好抱著好大嘅期望.

There are plenty of schools in England & Wales have a much higher Oxbridge acceptance rate than its 11%,

Most popular degree courses offered by Oxbridge, in fact, require applicants to sit a written examination FIRST.  You can find some sample questions and other useful information from the following book, costs you only £17,(about HK$ 220)

This school gets a very high A*-A rate but surprisingly only 11% getting into Oxbridge.  Agreed with Fate, there are many schools that have higher than 11%.

Heard from BK forum that this school only admits those who are thought to have ability to get A*/A.  If any student who is admitted but the school eventually finds he/she does not have the potential, he / she is forced to quit that the A*/A rate of the school won't be affected.

家長各出其謀  送子入名大學  安排律師樓打工  報研習班備戰

【明報專訊】英國私立中學Cardiff Sixth Form College(CSFS)今年將首度來港舉辦暑期研習班,專為有興趣報讀牛津及劍橋等名大學的學生而設,昨吸引約200名家長參加簡介會。有家長安排女兒16歲時到律師樓做暑期工,打造過人的履歷,現再報讀備戰入名大學課程,期望助女兒考入全球首10名大學。另有家長因兒子不清楚發展方向,故報讀研習班,「令他真正想想將來想讀什麼」。

5天課程約1.3萬

CSFS將於今年7月21至25日於香港舉行「考入牛津、劍橋攻略研習班」,對象為有意入英國名學府的中四及中五學生,課程由CSFS教師授課,內容包括入學面試技巧、個人陳述工作坊及入學試(如BMAT、LNAT等)工作坊等,5天課程費用約1.3萬港元,名額200個。CSFS昨舉行簡介會,有約200名家長到場了解。升學顧問英識教育項目經理劉泳治昨稱,暫已有近100名家長報名,6月1日截止。

家長:小朋友小時候要逼吓

朱小姐昨與丈夫一同參與簡介會,二人的女兒現於英國中學就讀12年級(相等於中六),來年將報讀大學。朱稱女兒的能力足以入讀全球首10名大學,早於去年暑假便安排她到律師樓工作,「讓她試試不同的工作,再思考該報讀什麼大學課程」,今年暑假會再安排她到銀行或律師樓工作。朱補充,女兒一早考獲鋼琴演奏級,亦是校內田徑隊成員,「小朋友小時候是要逼吓,學習不同東西,長大後才按她的興趣發展」。

譚先生亦於兒子中四時送他到英國讀書,有關開支佔家庭收入近30%,他指香港教育制度是「填鴨式教育」,不能令兒子有批判思考,故安排他放洋。他亦估計兒子有能力入讀全球首10名大學。

望課程助兒子找興趣方向

家長戴先生昨更即場為兒子報讀研習班,他指兒子不太清楚自己將來的方向,故希望可藉課程幫助他尋找興趣。戴稱,自小已為兒子「鋪路」,如安排他入讀英文小學、參加英美等國的遊學團,「讓他感受外國的生活,亦令他學習自立」。

My son is a law graduate of an UK college in 2011. He will become a lawyer this year.

He did not attend any summer job with a lawyer's company in 2006 or 2007 because it was difficult for a 16 or 17 years old boy to obtain summer placement in a lawyer's firm. Instead of taking a summer job in a lawyer's office, he attended the high court and a magistrate court to hear the trial of a civil case and some criminal cases. I did not know the exact cases involved.

In his personal statement, he wrote something about his feeling he obtained after hearing the cases involved. He realized that Hong Kong is a special place. Hong Kong people can challenge the Government without fear. An old lady living at the public estate could apply to the Court to stop the Government from floating its assets in the Stock Exchange. He also wrote something about the importance of due process of law after hearing the trial at the magistracy court. He wished to learn the legal theory behind.

At the end of the day, he obtained 3 offers from top 10 law school in UK and one offer from a top 20 law school. Cambridge also interviewed and pooled him but at the end of day, he was not given an offer.

十大的排名,时有上落,争议不休,连教育界睇到那些'傻更更'排名也会掩嘴笑时,点解香港的爸妈会甘肯定边间是'全球首10名大學?孩子又一定有能力入到'全球首10名大學?

话事话, 我都肯定阿女有'超能力'入到全球第一1名大學(虽然未肯定边间先至系第一住?总之是第一啦!),不过间第一1名大學唔收佢之麻....女女真系好有能力架,知道无?

Amongst those 4 offers, he chose the most demanding one as his firm offer and the next demanding one as his insurance offer.
At the end of the day, he met the firm offer and settled there.

去英國讀大學幾十萬一年,萬幾蚊一個 course,真係一 d 都唔多,一張機票都唔止,值唔值真係見仁見智。睇 description,都係學 d  一般的考大學的野,咁呢 d 野又真係唔會天生就識,有 d  學校老師會講/教,再唔係,學生真係有心學,自己上下網都搵到好多料,真係有實力入到 oxbridge,我直覺覺得佢地會自己上網又好,問老師又好,甚至自己睇下書等等都搞得掂。college essay 係較 tricky,因為要 original,但好多 so called  靚的 college essay,去到尾 d idea 都好 cliche,要突圍都係要靠自己。香港人係唔係水魚?怕扯係。不過,今時今日,萬幾蚊算得係乜?某間 "普通" 學校的遊學團都三萬。

bobbycheung  點同呢? "愛國"學校嘅遊學團係去賭城參觀, 培養未來賭城大亨㗎. 做唔成都可以做疊碼仔, 再唔係就做荷官. 前途肯定好過入牛津劍橋. 因此貴得有道理.   發表於 14-5-19 16:54

You're absolutely right!  That's exactly why the organiser has come up with this (Cashing In) Course - so many HK parents spend so much $$$ to ensure their children having a better chance than others, so HK$13,800 is actually a bargain to many HK parents.

But, remember, getting into Oxbridge is NOT 'Have all or End all', because an Oxbridge graduate is no longer guaranteed a good job in the current economic climate!


It's all about developing the Life Essential Skills, which will help our children not only to have a great success in the School World, but also, more importantly, a great success in the Real World : enjoying long lasting, true happiness.


So, if we apply Critical Thinking Skill in this instance, the first question one should be asking is,


If this course is so good,  should this school have 100% of its students getting into Oxbridge? (i.e. not only 11%)




The second question one should be asking is,


If a doctor has a 11% successful operation rate, do you want this doctor to operate on you? (i.e. 9 out of 10 patients die after his operation)




The Third question is,


Perhaps one can find out themselves,

Good Luck......to your money and your child's future.

All the 4 offers were UK colleges.He did not apply to the colleges in Hong Kong
At that time, his first preference is to do law in UK. If he could not meet the offer (which I think was quite demanding), he would go to a college in USA to study a pre-law program.

睇文件都未必有份. Summer job 最做得多嘅係影印. 即係做影帝, 影后. 通常最大嘅得著係多咗個 suntan, 因為比個影印機曬黑咗.

He completed his PCLL in 2012 with one of the three universities of Hong Kong. He completed all his conversion examinations by the time he graduated. Sorry not to make known the name of institution because if I do so, my son could easily be identified.
