這是第7篇,這個系列的終章。

 

成績不好,因為家庭環境?

 

成績不好,因為你某方面太好?例如你是體育健將,或者你是少女模特兒?

 

或者,你做得不錯,但對方質疑你不夠突出,你就算明知他故意刁難,也只能和顏悅色地回答。因為,你若直斥他問illegitimate question,就等於自動撤回入學申請,而你是不可以讓這種事情發生的。

 

用不着煩,你自己就可以處理。

  

If your results are not very satisfactory because of your family circumstances and living situation, but you have made the best out of your situation… (如果因為家庭/居住環境等因素,你的成績不很理想,但你的確曾經努力過…)

1.          (你的英文成績不太好) Perhaps it has something to do with my difficult family circumstances.  My parents are divorced.  I live with my mother, and I have to help her make ends meet by tutoring kids. (Don’t be shy away from discussing your roots! But don’t spend too much time dwelling on the obstacles.  Rather, say how you have beaten the odds, or are in the process of doing so.)  Nevertheless, I cherish an independent spirit.  I should not let my family background stop me from acquiring knowledge and rising to challenges.  As mentioned in the testimonial from my teacher [Miss A] (你可以找老師寫封推薦信嗎?), I really like to read books on Chinese history and are obsessed with (着迷) Chinese literature.  I know the importance of English as a media/medium of learning I know the importance of subject knowledge as a foundation for learning.  I am trying my best to improve my [English/subject knowledge] by borrowing books from libraries and learning from online materials. (Communicate to the admission officers something about yourself that doesn’t necessarily appear on your results slip.) (成績不理想?面試時,展示成績單沒有反映的一面。)

 

If you have one particular talent … (如果你有一項很出眾的才藝…)

2.          (如果你某項興趣做得很好,但被問及你的某項興趣是否佔用太多時間,以致影響學業。)  My interest in and time commitment of [swimming] may have precluded other activities.  But as I have a passion for [swimming], prioritizing is necessary (表示你懂做決定), bearing in mind that I should never shirk my academics (而你沒有逃避學業).  I am used to pushing myself.  In fact, I think [swimming] is an example of my commitment and passion.   (a) It shows my willingness to get excited about what I’m doing and then pursue that seriously, taking it to a very high level. (b) My excellence in [swimming] is evidence of my ability to commit wholeheartedly to a single pursuit. (你愛某項活動又將那活動做得很好,證明當你喜歡某事時,你很有熱情去做好,不言而喻,這個優點也適用於你的學習。).

3.          (如果你被問及你的主要興趣對你有何益處) 答案1From my main activity, [voluntary work], I learned about communication and teamwork, while having an amazing time. 答案2It seems that from [swimming] I have developed a passion that resonates (回響,影響) in everything I do and a drive to make things done/make things happen. 答案3I believe that the discipline I have developed through [swimming] can be transferred into everything I do. (如果你在一種活動上有很好的表現,你想說服大學:你在該項活動的成功因素,在你做其他事情時,也能發揮作用。)

4.          (如果你被問及為何興趣不多)  I did not pursue many activities in Form 5 and Form 6.  Instead, I narrowed down what I enjoyed to [swimming].  I see myself as focused and determined.  I am able to make sacrifices for something I love (這句表示你是成熟和知所取捨的人。).  From my main activity, [swimming/debate], I learned about communication and teamwork, while having an amazing time.

 

If you do not have one particular talent, but have done well at most of what you have tried in secondary school… (如果你有很多活動,都做得不錯,但沒有一項特別出眾…)

5.           (如果被問及你是否參與太多課外活動) 答案1I see myself as a pretty well-rounded person, and I wish to remain well-rounded. I do not have one activity I am amazing at, but I do stay busy with activities that I really cared about.  My goal in life is balance. 答案2I should never shirk my academics (而你沒有逃避學業), I think ECA are richly rewarding, as they have brought me personal maturation as well as intellectual development and increased my curiosity for the world around me.
