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!

Accepts applications from children of BN(O) and students holding the HKSAR passport

Studying GCE A-levels in a State Sixth Form College is the cheapest option in sixth-form, where tuition and accommodation expenses can start at around HKD$160,000 every year. The GCE A-levels qualifications also have the advantage, which reserves the possibility for students to apply to universities in Hong Kong via the Non-Jupas route. If the Non-Jupas application were successful, your overall education expenses would be much smaller than studying in a university in the UK!

In the seminar, John Leggott College will introduce you aspects of the study life in a state sixth form college, while British United will complement the discussion with an analysis of Admission Data via the Non-Jupas route:

  • Study Life in a State Sixth-Form College: Arran Quickfall, International Recruitment Manager from John Leggott College, will introduce you the typical study life in a State Sixth-Form College, covering issues such as teaching quality, facilities, subject choices in GCE A-levels, entry requirement and university destination of past students.
  • Admission Data Analysis of Non-Jupas Route (Hong Kong): Based on admission data of local universities of the past few years, British United will show you how big a chance you have in securing a place via the Non-Jupas route. It turns out that a huge difference exists in different academic disciplines!

Details of Event: How can I Watch the Seminar from Home?

The seminar will also be delivered via Zoom. Students and parents can watch the seminar in our office and meet with our education consultants right after the seminar. Alternatively, you can also choose to watch the seminar in the comfort of your own home.

  • UCA Canterbury – Just an easy one-hour train journey from London and home to three universities, the historic city of Canterbury is a superb destination for international students! Fine Art, Architecture, Interior Architecture are particularly notable courses in UCA Canterbury. Other visual art courses include Illustration & Animation, Graphic Design, Creative Computing and many more!
