2018香港大學

 

When it comes to choosing university, people often think of places like the UK and USA. However, sometimes home could be the best option for you (or alternatively, sometimes Asia could be your door to opportunity). Despite the entire country being only 2,754km2 and home to less than 15 universities, an astounding 5 of these institutions have made it into the official QS University Ranking’s Top 100 for 2018!
公開試放榜在即,不少人部署升學路時,都會考慮海外大學,英國、美國等更被視為熱門地區。其實於本地升學,也未嘗不是一條好出路(或者,亞洲的大學能為你打開機會之門)。雖然香港只屬彈丸之地,大學數目寥寥可數,但當中有5間知名學府打入2018年國際高等教育資訊機構Quacquarelli Symonds公布的全球大學排名100強,實在值得驕傲。

 

In fact, all institutions but Chinese University and Baptist University experienced an “upgrade” in terms of their ratings, with HKU leading the way with a world ranking of 26 in 2018. HKUST came in at a close second, being placed 30th on the list, followed by Chinese University at 46, City University at 49, and Polytechnic University coming in at 95.
事實上,除了中大和浸大,其他香港學府的排名均有上升﹕港大以第26名領先,成為最高本地學府。科大亦緊隨其後,位列第30名。中大、城大和理工大學分別位於第46名、第49名及第95名。

This is amazing news for educational institutions in Hong Kong, and provides aspirations and hope for the future when it comes to educating students at a tertiary level in Asia’s World City. So, when it is your turn to make a decision for your future, don’t forget to keep Hong Kong in your thoughts!
對眾多學府而言,這絕對是天大的喜訊,同時為未來培養學生帶來更大的鼓舞和希望。所以,當你要為未來作出選擇,不忘考慮本地學府呢﹗

High IQ, Low Oxbridge Admission Rates?

December 15th, 2016

高智商並不代表入讀牛津劍橋?

 

“Hong Kong has the number 1 IQ ranking in the world” according to the official IQ Research website (https://iq-research.info/en/page/average-iq-by-country). However, despite this, Hong Kong students have even lower acceptance rates to Oxbridge universities when compared to Singapore (second highest world IQ) and the UK (seventh highest world IQ). Why is this the case?
根據IQ研究官方顯示(https://iq-research.info/en/page/average-iq-by-country),香港在全世界IQ排行第一。儘管如此,香港相較於新加坡(IQ排名第二)及英國(IQ排名第七)來講,牛津劍橋的入學率都相對較低,為什麼會這樣?

 

Simply put, successful admission into these universities requires more than just high IQ and good exam results – many students in Hong Kong seem to forget about the other challenges they face along the way, more notably, notorious interview sessions. Students are prone to face questions that at a first glance may seem impossible to answer, leaving the simpleminded to wonder how on Earth a solution can be provided. It is at this stage where Oxbridge schools filter out the worthy candidates from those who are less suitable, and where even the most intelligent students find themselves thinking “but I have the best marks…how can they say no?!”
簡單來說,成功入讀這些頂尖學校不僅需要高智商以及優異的考試成績,很多香港學生並沒有意識到來自其它方面的挑戰,比如十分重要的面試環節。學生在回答問題時,經常看了一眼問題,就認為自己沒有能力回答。牛津劍橋這類的頂尖院校,希望選擇最適合的候選學生,所以很多成績優異的學生認為:我分數這麼高,為什麼拒絕我?

 

Furthermore, unfortunately students completing the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) may find themselves struggling to stand out against the competition, as only 7% of HKDSE applications are accepted on an annual basis. The reason for this simply being that universities are unfamiliar with the Hong Kong schooling system, which results in undesired miscommunication. However by encouraging more capable students to apply, we can make this lack of understanding a thing of the past.
而且很多參加HKDSE考試的學生都希望脫穎而出,但可惜只有7%的入學申請能夠被接納。原因一方面是海外學校缺乏對香港教育體系的了解。儘管如此,我們還是鼓勵具備潛力的學生申請,希望透過努力,能夠不斷提升他們對香港的了解。

 

When these two previously mentioned points are coupled, one can effectively conclude that students in Hong Kong should be receiving the appropriate mentorship and guidance to nurture their already existing Oxbridge intelligence.
除了以上提到的兩個方面,香港學生應該接受適當的指引,培養自己具備牛津劍橋要求的條件。

 

While getting into Oxford and Cambridge may seem like an impossible feat, Hong Kong students most definitely have the intelligence and talent that is required. However, more support could be given to ensure that these bright students are guided and advised in the correct direction to ensure successful admission and for them to realise and materialise their dreams.

儘管牛津劍橋是看似不可完成的目標,但香港學生仍然具備入讀頂尖院校的智慧和天賦。相信我們能夠給學生帶來更多的支持和指引,從而確保他們可以實現夢想,入讀頂尖名校。

 

This is exactly what the Norton House Academic Team strive to embody and provide through their educational pursuit. Students who embark on an effective Admission Coaching & Advisory journey stand out from those who purely rely on their exam results, regardless of grades, Norton House students always come out on top.
這也是Norton House始終堅持的教育理念,學生可以在我們的輔導之下提升學業成績,更可以不斷進步,成就卓越!

Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI) – The Hardest Part of Medical Applications?

October 13th, 2016

迷你面試——醫學專業申請的最難一關?

Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI) – The Hardest Part of Medical Applications?

As the dreaded deadline looms over us, most students are finishing their UCAS applications. Finishing this major milestone can only mean one thing: interviews are just around the corner.

申請截止日期將至,很多同學都完成了他們的UCAS申請。至關重要的部分大功告成,看來面試也近在眼前!

 

For prospective medicine applicants, there is a daunting prospect ahead of you. Interviews to medical schools are notoriously difficult, and many of the top students slip up at the interview stage, having excelled academically.

對於醫科的申請者們來說,面試可並不簡單。醫學生的面試通常難度極高,很多學業優異的學生也難以通過此項面試。

 

A particularly challenging aspect of the interview process is the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) stage. There is now an increasing trend for top medical schools in both the UK and HK to perform the MMI in place of either group or panel interviews. The MMI places an applicant under many high-stress situations, and that is exactly what interviewers are looking for: how do you cope under a multitude of different stressful encounters?

面試過程中極具挑戰性的就是迷你面試環節。現在英國和香港的醫學院都以迷你面試取代之前的群組面試,迷你面試通常在高壓力環境下完成,學校希望通過迷你面試了解學生,是否能夠在壓力之下仍然表現良好。

 

Unlike a group interview, where you can settle down and find yourself a rhythm with respect to other applicants; or a panel interview, where your sole focus is to come up with the best answer possible, the MMI challenges the applicant on an array of tasks demanded of a medical professional.

在傳統的群組面試中,面試者通常需要為自己設定角色,或者積極尋找解決問題的最佳大難。但迷你面試需要學生回答很多問題,以此判定是否具有醫學學習的潛質。

 

The MMI is typically run in a number of rooms, where each of the rooms has a different challenge set for the applicant. The applicant must venture into each and every one of these rooms, tackling the task set by the interviewer. Each mini-interview is around 5 to 10 minutes in length, and there is little time between each “set” for the applicant to recompose and regroup. Therefore, it is extremely demanding both academically and mentally.

迷你面試通常在不同房間進行,每個房間都有為學生準備的不同題目。面試學生需要走進每間房內,逐個完成考試題目。每一個迷你面試大約進行5至10分鐘,在每一個試題進行期間,都有少少時間重新編組。所以,迷你面試不論從學術知識抑或應變能力都是極大的考驗。

 

Not only are applicants expected to possess medical knowledge, where they may be asked technical questions, but they may also be asked a variety of other questions: critical analysis of medical publications, communication skills with fellow applicants or interviewers; situational judgement and awareness; and medical ethics questions. Applicants are expected to excel in each and every one of these aspects, and this is why the MMI is particularly challenging. In a group or panel interview, applicants are able to hide some of their weaknesses; but not with the MMI.

不僅申請學生需要具備一定的醫學知識,而且他們可能會被問及一些技術問題,甚至需要對醫學刊物做批判性分析,現場測試與其他申請者或面試官的溝通交流能力,以及醫學道德倫理等。面試學生需要在每一個環節表現出色,才能有機會獲得入讀機會。如果在傳統的群組面試中,面試者或許尚且能夠隱藏部分缺點,但在迷你面試中,一切優點和缺點都將顯露無遺!

 

Sounds hard? Fear not! Professional help is at hand. With a team of HKU medics, Norton House is here to help guide applicants through the maze of the MMI. Where better to gain a head start in your application but to come to the Norton House MMI workshop on 26 October.

迷你面試聽起來超難?不要擔心!專業的指導將事半功倍!香港大學的醫學生將在Norton House 為學生提供面對面分享,助你在迷你面試取得成功。想要獲得更優成績?記得要來Norton House 10月26日工作坊活動

UCAS Oxbridge Deadlines! What Do I Do?

October 3rd, 2016

牛津UCAS申請即將開始!你準備好未?

UCAS Oxbridge Deadlines! What Do I Do?

It is the end of September, the start of a new school year. This is the time that many students are looking forward to, yet dreading at the same time. It is, of course, the time for university applications.
九月底是開始新學年的時候,這時很多學生既期盼又憂慮,因為這也是需要準備大學入學申請的時間。

 

Not only are students expected to showcase their best in these applications, but they are also to complete an application (or three) within the span of a month, with minimal help from their teachers.
儘管學生們希望在入學申請中表現出最好的自己,但是完成一份或幾份申請材料,最少需要一個月的時間,這還是在老師提供幫助的情況下。

 

I have a student who said to me, “my school has told me to submit a personal statement, but they have not told me what a personal statement is.” Great! How do teachers expect their students to come up with a half decent application when they do not offer their students sufficient support?
我有一個學生曾經對我說:大學告訴我需要上交一份個人陳述,但是學校並沒告訴我個人陳述是什麼。的確如此!在老師沒有幫助學生的時候,怎麼可能需要學生完成一份不錯的入學申請呢?

 

So today I am here to offer some last minute survival tips for all the lost souls out there dreading the 15 October UCAS deadline.
所以現在我就在申請的最後一刻,為各位提供終極貼士:

 

Gather any exam transcripts and work experience reference letter, they will come in handy when you fill in the different sections of the UCAS application.
準備好一切考試成績單及工作推薦信,這些信息都需要填寫在UCAS申請中。

 

  1. Make sure your Personal Statement tells a story. It should be something close to your
    heart, something you are able to write extensively (and talk extensively) about.
    一定要讓個人陳述講述一個完整的故事,而且故事一定要貼近內心,表達自我。
  2. Your Personal Statement is not your CV in paragraph form. DO NOT simply just put down all your achievements. You should elaborate about your experiences, and how they have helped you.
    個人陳述不要以簡歷的格式呈現,不要僅僅列出個人成就,更需要詳細介紹自己的各方面經驗,才能在申請中真正幫助自己。
  3. Be wary of the word limit, you get 4000 characters and 47 lines on the UCAS application, and not a single character over will do.
    在UCAS申請中,一定要注意字數限制,每人有47行4000個字展示自己,多一個字都不可以。
  4. Make sure you register for any admission tests that you are required to take before the registration deadline.
    一定要在註冊截止時間前註冊需要參加的入學測試。
  5. Go see your teacher, if you have not already done so, with your CV and personal statement draft so they can write your reference before the application deadline.
    去見一下自己的老師,如果你現在還沒有去,一定要在申請日期截止前,帶好簡歷及個人陳述,請老師為自己寫推薦信。
  6. Remind your teacher, and keep on reminding him/her, that you intend to apply for Oxbridge (medicine, vet, dentistry), so they are fully aware that they need to provide you with a sufficient reference before October 15th.
    如果打算申請牛津和劍橋(醫藥,獸醫,牙醫),一定要隨時提醒老師,需要在10月15日之前提交完整推薦信。
  7. Let multiple people read your personal statement, and consolidate their comments for improvement. That is not to say change everything they say!
    最好讓多個人閱讀你的個人陳述,然後聽取他們的意見再進行修改。當然,也不是他們說要修改的全部要改!
  8. Make sure there are no grammatical or spelling mistakes in your personal statement. Also, make sure you are consistent with UK or US style spelling.
    一定要確保個人陳述中沒有任何語法或拼寫錯誤。還有,一定不要弄混英式拼法和美式拼法。

 

If you are unsure of what to do, fret not! Norton House is here to help. Just give us a call and one of our Admission Coaches can lead you every step of the way through the UCAS application process.
如果現在你還不知道該如何去做,別擔心!Norton House隨時幫你,只需要撥通我們的電話,我們的申請導師會逐步教你UCAS申請過程!
