Do your grades reflect your learning ability/how much you have learned?

 

你的成績可能很好,或者不很理想。

 

你成績好的話,admission officers 可能問你:Do your grades reflect your learning ability?

 

你成績普通或不理想的話,admission officers不想令你不快,可能委婉地問你:Do your grades reflect how much you have learned?

 

如果你學校和考試成績都很好,可以參考以下答案:

 

I believe so to a certain extent. I aim to do well both in school and public exams because it is important for me to challenge my own potential.  Achieving good grades requires perseverance(持之以恆), commitment(投入), and hard work. I think these traits (個性)are essential to learning.  On the other hand1, in addition to academic knowledge, interpersonal skills, creativity, leadership skills, and problem-solving abilities are also important qualities for all-round development.  As some aspects2 of our education system are better geared towards producing good grades than independent and critical thinking, I shall take care not to assume myself to be a better student merely because of my grades.  I really want to maintain a sense of wonder about the world as my life progresses.

1 On the other hand之後,開始從另一角度看你自己的好成績。為甚麽要這樣呢?不是要自貶,只是表示自我反省,戒慎恐懼。如果你成績好,雖然應該據此表示信心,但只從一個角度看問題,未免偏狹,也有點驕傲嚣張。相反,話鋒一轉後,如果你指出independent and critical thinking的重要,那顯示你可能已在一定程度上掌握了這些;如果你指出你不能因成績好就假設自己是better student,那表示你知道謙虛。

2 留意,你只是說some aspects of our education有點「不好」,不是說整個教育制度如此。面試不是向男、女友訴心曲的時候,admission officers 也不可能是你的男、女友。所以,說話要掌握分寸、留有餘地。提防對方追問你「教育制度有何不足?」,因為你早己說了是some aspects,隨便舉一兩個例子即可。相反,若你說整個教育制度有毛病,你便需要很強的論證,而這不是三言兩語可以說得清楚的。

 

如果你學校和考試成績未能盡如你意,可以參考以下答案:

 

I earned average grades at school, but I always excelled at/I am good at sports / voluntary work / extra-curricular activities.  [I won a championship in ABC. / I was a member of the debate team and the track and field team of our school. / I am a volunteer worker of ABC.]1 [I worked several summer jobs and all my employers considered me a good worker.  One of them even offered me a full-time position.]2   But all these do not mean that I’m satisfied with my grades.  I know there is much room for me to make improvement.  [In fact, I am taking a short course to improve my English. And I am now reading two books to improve my study skills and time management skills.]3   I am a much more serious student now.  I will work much harder if I am given this valuable opportunity to continue studies at your university.4

123都是些實例,舉出實例支持自己的話。和上一個答案不同,成績好的學生報出來的成績就是證明。成績不如理想的話,有需要申明自己在其他方面的優點,因為這些優點不能用results slip證明,所以要準備些想說的實例。(Don’t make excuses for your failings.  Speak about how you are overcoming them and your sincerity.)

4是表示誠意。

 

沒有了性愛,愛情仍繼續

如果殺死無辜的A以救回兩個人,幹不幹?主張效益論的人說:「幹掉A」。「殺死無辜者」在一些情況下可以是「道德」的嗎?抑或在任何情況下都是不道德的?老兄、小姐,如果你被殺就可以救回我和我的男友和他的女友,你會介意「犠牲」嗎?

林瑞麟橫蠻封殺立法會補選,要杜絕反廿三條的再次變相公投;選舉管理委員會主席馮驊一心封殺網台踐踏言論自由;立法會收緊議事規則;范婦人徐麗泰磨拳擦掌要通過廿三條;唐英年多次向香港青年開火;曾偉雄貯足胡椒準備狂噴。港人繼續歌舞星平,長睡不醒,全天候「沒空」,無暇投票,不願遊行,集會缺席,雖有東歐、北非民運成功的先例,卻仍不知發揮人民力量喝止強權的重要,亦不知坐視民主權利被剝奪的弊端:香港不斷步向黑暗,子女歲歲為奴,世世為娼!

范徐麗泰教化港人:廿三條不是洪水猛獸,唔駛驚喎,要平和理性呀!平和理性地讓廿三條的枷鎖套到我們頭上!!!最壞的情況不過是香港人當上劉曉波、趙連海、譚作人或者艾未未(如果香港有人夠格當得上),當權者永遠「平和理性」的悶聲逮補你打壓你 !將言論自由公義清議掃地出門,誰說真話就將誰逮捕幽禁,毋須陳明理由,捏造誣告即可。情況遠比差不多已被人類修理淨盡的洪水猛獸嚴峻悲慘!!!
