多謝詳細資料,很有用啊!另外請問一些較top的大學例如Imperial College,是否很難入呢?Southampton, Bristol, ...

C6 回應如下

'你講嗰4間高 Coventry 同 Plymouth 幾級

Imperial 係神級大學要求係非常高 : A*AA
(Imperial 係極之難入, 一般都要 Interview, 約 6個㨂1個)
https://www.imperial.ac.uk/study/ug/courses/electrical-engineering-department/electrical-and-electronic-engineering-meng/

Southampton, Bristol 同 Bath 都係近神級, 要求都好高

Southampton : A*AA
https://www.southampton.ac.uk/courses/electrical-and-electronic-engineering-degree-meng

Bristol 同 Bath 都要 AAA
http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/2020/electrical-electronic-eng/meng-electrical-and-electronic-engineering-with-a/

https://www.bath.ac.uk/courses/undergraduate-2020/electronic-and-electrical-engineering/beng-electrical-and-electronic-engineering/#entry-requirements

A Level 深 GCSE 好多
我識嘅 grammar school 學生
GCSE 讀10 -12科, 一到A Level 只讀3 - 4科
= A Level 難過 GCSE 約 3 倍?
= GCSE 攞到嘅 grade 到 A Level 通常都會約跌一個 grade?
e.g. GCSE Maths 攞 7 到A Level Maths 好多變咗攞 B?

當然, 凡事都有例外

不過, 如果你仔仔想讀 Imperial 或 Southampton
因為兩間都要求 A*AA , 你仔仔 GCSE Maths 同 Physics 最好攞到 9

Bristol 同 Bath 都要 AAA
你你仔 GCSE Maths 同 Physics 最好攞到 8

現階段你仔仔要俾心機學習
温書時最好做多D past papers
睇吓明年8月出D成績係邊先再計劃'

希望C6以上資料幫到你/你仔仔

Biochemistry : Oxford, IC, UCL

Hi Mum99,

Can I seek for your opinion which of UCL and ICL is better known for biochemistry? Is Oxf ...

Below please find C6 's comments

'All 3 are well-known not just in UK but also internationally
I will be over the moon if my child is accepted by any of them

Having said that, Oxford still seems to be the ultimate choice for most
Most will then pick IC
Actually, each of the 3 has something different to offer

LEAGUE TABLES

The Subject (Biological Science) League Table seems to support this general perception

Oxford : 2nd  IC : 3rd  UCL : 8th (out of 102)
https://www.thecompleteuniversityguide.co.uk/league-tables/rankings/biological-sciences

Oxford : 2nd.  UC : 8th   UCL : 23rd  (out of 102)
https://www.theguardian.com/education/ng-interactive/2019/jun/07/university-guide-2020-league-table-for-biosciences

COURSE CONTENTS

Oxford  4 Yr MBiochem
- demands A*AA (Applicant Successful Rate :1 in 6)
- its Biochemistty Dept is one of the largest in Europe
- 4th year : a  23-week project

http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/undergraduate/courses-listing/biochemistry-molecular-and-cellular

Imperial 4 Yr BSc
- demands AAA (Applicant Successful Rate :1 in 7)
- 1 year placement
- awarded Associate of Royal Colleage of Science

https://www.imperial.ac.uk/study/ug/courses/life-sciences-department/biochemistry-with-industry-research-bsc/

UCL 4 Yr MSci
- demands AAA
- one of the world's largest academic centres for research in biochemistry

- strong links with members of the bioscience community in London (such as the Francis Crick Institute, the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre, the UCL Cancer Institute and Cancer Research UK)

- excellent resources include the Darwin Research Facility

https://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/undergraduate/degrees/biochemistry-msci

I could be biased : I always go for a course with a placement
So, if I were lucky enough to be offered a place by these 3 global unis
After a struggle, I would probably go for IC
(The title 'Associate of Royal College of Science' should look good on a business card)'

Hope C6's comments is helpful to you/your child

Mum99 的資料十分詳盡,幫到好多家長。
想請教:
1. 如果入牛劍等超級神校,是否也要看GCSE成績?
2. 考慮緊女兒讀完中四(現在中三)過英國讀書,應讀一年制的GCSE課程,還是直入A Level? 擔心A Level 深好多.
謝謝!

C6 話
Lancaster 會唔會係最佳選擇?
相對其他 uni 入學要求略低同較有彈性?

想請問為甚麼有些大學英國排名好高,但世界排名較低,而有些則相反。另外選學科排名高還是大學排名高好些。

C6 回應如下

'你問
想女女Yr 7去英國讀書
會唔會太早去?

我早前巳回應過類似問題
(請睇番上面74#)
當然, 如果一家人一齊嚟英國可能會好D?

有樣嘢你可能忽略咗
英國入學年紀同香港唔同
你女女喺香港讀緊Yr 5 = 10 歲?
出年9月讀Yr 6, 期間會變11歲?

英國D學生係11歲讀Yr 7
如果你想女女Yr 7 去英國
係未變咗而家要揀學校、搞手續等?
趕出年9月開學?
駛唔駛同你 agent 澄清?

下面條 link 講及英國入學年齡
https://www.theeducationwebsite.co.uk/index.php?page=schools

另外, 你問QE好唔好
由於英國有幾間學校叫QE
所以早前問你學校全名
仍等緊你回覆

或者你可以自己 check 吓以下嘅 link
揾你間QE嘅Ofsted report 睇吓

Exeter & Employers

回覆 Mum99 的帖子

great thanks to you and sorry to keep asking questions. as we didnt plan to send  ...

C6's response is as follows

'There could be other reasons why so many HK students applying Exeter?
e.g. it has a large HK students community? (easier to settle when arriving UK?)
e.g. there are 10 Exeter authorised agents in HK? (easier to apply in HK?)

Employers do have preference and hence do target certain unis
Surprised that some unis are not in top 10 of any league table?
The Graduate Market in 2019 report has named these unis

(This is a study of graduate vacancies starting salaries and
undergraduate work experience programmes at UK's top 100 employers)

You can view the Report  by visiting, https://www.highfliers.co.uk/
Select at the bottom right, 'The Graduate Market 2019'
Then select 'Research report', P. 6, 7th para, it states

'The ten universities targeted by the largest number of
top graduate employers in 2018-19 are (in the following order)

1) Manchester
2) Bristol
3) Birmingham
4) Warwick
5) University College London
6) Cambridge
7) Nottingham
8) Durham
9) Leeds
10) Oxford'

Another report published abt 2 years ago in 2017
https://www.gradtouch.com/advice/article/content-these-universities-were-the-most-targeted-by-graduate-employers

When recruiting, no one in a big firm cares even if you're from a very top uni
You must pass online tests 1st before being invited for further assessment
(I know 1 has master degree & 1 has 2:1 in BSc from top unis failed the tests)

Just to give you a few examples of the firms using these online tests.
Some law firms, HSBC and KPMG

Last year, a friend told me his son failed the Tesco online SJT
(He's a lecturer at a Russell Group uni & his son got an IQ of 145)
My friend then tried it......... he failed as well.

So I tried it.  I failed it too.
(I passed on my 2nd attempt after learning the tricks)
That was a PART TIME post at a local Tesco only.

The boy of my friend's friend's  had 2 months ago
Applied for a post at a reputable High Street retailer
Just a temporary sessional Xmas sales assistant post
He got the job only after more than 90 minutes interview/test

So you have been warned :
Encourage your child to do the summer internship
To build a good rapport with prospective employers

= 識人好過識字、話之你係博士?

And a good reputation of being a
Hardworking, Honest, Humble, Helpful, Happy member
= 人才難求、人品難有; 兩者兼備、大老細點會俾你走?

What are some of the most wanted qualities?

highly appreciate your info and help in answering my questions, you really help me alot. i already passed all your valuable advice to my daughter

finally we have picked Exeter, Newcastle, Loughborough, York and UEA for Accounting and Finance.

we are applying for the degree course with placement and hope it can help my girl to get some working experience before graduated.

I also got advice from 2 British friends and seems they are not concern about the ranking like HK people do. both of them said york is good among the 5 unis.

I will wait for the offer and let my girl pick as she is the one that go studying.

The price is good for return tickets for us.  But for the one way ticket, it is even more expensive than the return ticket, so we are finding if there is any alternative.   

We have just applied via UCAS before Christmas, and are still waiting for reply for 4 Us.  Except for one, all starts the term on 21 Sep 2020, so we plan to arrive UK on 11 or 12 Sep.
