Student Case Sharing:
From Below Pass Grades to Durham University

In 2014, BU student Michael Luk completed a one-year University Foundation in CATS College, made astonishing progress in his academic work and was admitted by Durham University Business School.

Michael was not top in class back in his school in Hong Kong. Like many teenagers he sometimes cares more about his hobbies than school work and his grades once worried his parents. These improved a lot when Michael was transferred to CATS College after F.5 where he was encouraged to develop his hobbies alongside school work.

This year (2017) Michael will be graduating from Durham University. CATS College went to visit him at Durham and asked him to share his thoughts about the past four years he spent studying in the UK.

Notable alumni include singer-songwriter James Blunt, as well as Hong Kong alumni such as LegCo member Alvin Yeung Ngok-Kiu and news reporter Kenneth Ng King-Chun.

University of Bristol is ranked within top 20 in as many as 31 academic disciplines, which include highly popular courses such as Engineering, Law, Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, as well as Computer Science, Psychology, Geography & International Development, Politics, Sociology and Social Policy.

University of Bristol is one of the few universities that offer a “conversion” master’s degree in Computer Science (which accepts graduates from other disciplines), as well as a Vet Nursing programme in undergraduate level.

The Department of Computer Science, in particular, has a joint-venture with the city council of Bristol, which aims to employ artificial intelligence and big data technology to transform the city as a smart city. Since its establishment, this “Bristol Is Open” initiative has already kick-started a number of projects. In addition to early development work, University of Bristol is also the data hub of the project, where data collected from the city-wide network is transferred to and analyzed. To researchers and students in the University, this means that they have the whole city as their real-life case study and laboratory! The “Bristol Is Open” initiative was also considered a major contributing factor, when Bristol was named the number 1 smart city in the UK.

Mander Portman Woodward (MPW) Sixth Form College in an independent sixth form college founded in 1973, with campuses in London, Birmingham and Cambridge. MPW mainly teaches GCSE and GCE A-levels. There are also the options of 1-Year A-levels and Pre-A-levels, tailored to meet the needs of international students! Currently about 70% of students in MPW Sixth Form College are local British students. There is a tight control on class size, which won’t go beyond nine students per class. Over 40 subjects are offered in its GCE A-levels curriculum. Public exam results are consistently outstanding – A*-B rates in GCE A-levels were between 62% to 75% in the past five years (2015-2019).

In addition to being an education provider, Mander Portman Woodward (MPW) Sixth Form College is also a book publisher with a collection of subject guides and UCAS guides which provide students with useful information on higher education.

70% UK Students – Why Do Students Choose to Transfer to MPW for their GCSE and A-levels?

As a sixth form college, the majority of students in MPW are A-levels students who transferred to MPW from other secondary schools, with many of them coming from top schools in their regions! The majority of them would start at MPW after completing their GCSE, while some might transfer during their A-levels years due to different circumstances. And there are also a good number of students who join the 1-Year A-levels programmes to have another go in public exams, as it’s believed that the first attempt didn’t reflect their ability.

Below we have summarized from the student testimonials on the MPW website, in which we have tried to highlight why they made the decision to transfer to MPW, and what they see as the best part of their experience in MPW:

1-Year A-levels

If you have the ambitions and you believe that you’re capable of getting into one of the world’s finest universities (such as Oxbridge, LSE and alike) or one of the highly competitive subjects (such as Medicine, Actuarial Science, Law, etc), then perhaps a 1-Year A-levels programme will be a good option to look at – a second attempt in the widely recognized GCE A-levels qualifications!

From when you express your interest in the one-year A-levels, the admissions team from MPW will already start talking to you, to understand your aspiration and come up with a good study plan for you. These can range from advices on subject choices, planning for work and volunteering experience, to preparation for admission interviews and specialist written tests (such as UCAT and BMAT for Medicine, LNAT for Law, etc). All of these start early because studying in one year what normal students have two years to cover isn’t an easy task!

When students arrive, they will study under the guidance of their teachers and personal tutors – an excellent level of support that crafted a highly positive study experience, as described below by one of our successful students Ulysses!

A Testimonial Written by Ulysses
MPW is ranked among the very top sixth form colleges in the A-Level results table with an extraordinarily high rate of 40% of candidates obtaining A*/A, according to the Telegraph. Being situated in Cambridge, a place widely pervaded by an academic atmosphere, MPW ought to be an ideal place for studying. These were my considerations when choosing a college: academic performance and location. And, that was why I chose MPW.

Indeed, MPW is not in vain that it bears the place in the table. I received high levels of holistic assistance covering my academic aspect as well as university guidance from the teachers. Joel, my personal tutor, did not only help me with my application but also voluntarily used his spare time to mark my extra homework as an experienced philosophy teacher. My class teachers, Toby, Nick and Neil, were all equally excellent explainers on the abstract concepts of philosophical arguments, mathematical formulae and economic problems respectively in spite of the limited time of the course, whose length was only a year for both AS and A2. Their enlightenments on me were not merely scholarly, they ameliorated my attitude towards studying, my logical and critical thinking, and most importantly, they befriended me not as teachers but socially experienced yet ordinary men, which is fundamental to students because to us, schools are not places wholly classified as homework factories, on the contrary, they are where we live, where we interact with and learn life experience from people.

The result day did not bring any disappointment to the teachers to whom I should thank and be grateful for. I eventually achieved A*AAA in my A-Level and am en route to study law at Cambridge, which drew a period, if not an exclamation mark, to my secondary education. I can conclude that my life at MPW was enjoyable and unforgettable that there was no regret or mournfulness that I chose MPW. It was a privilege and an honour having studied there.

Notable alumni include world-renowned fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, actress Helen Mirren and musician Goldfrapp and Roger Glover.

In addition to undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, Middlesex University also provides foundation programmes in the form of a Foundation Year. Designed for students whose grades fall slightly short of the requirements of undergraduate year one, a Foundation Year is an additional year attached to a standard 3-year undergraduate degree (students will be issued a visa that covers the whole 4-year period). Compared with a broad-learning University Foundation Course, in the Foundation Year students will focus on modules directly relevant to their disciplines and enjoy higher certainty in progression.

Middlesex University currently offers the Foundation Year in areas such as Art & Design (including Fashion Design, Media, Visual Arts, Performing Arts, etc), Communication & Media, Business, Biological Sciences, Computer Sciences, Law, Sport Sciences and more!
