还记得上一段时间CA火热朝天的“剑桥问题征集”吗?

剑桥招生官亲自解答了大家的问题!想申请剑桥的小伙伴赶紧看一看!

木有想到CA粉丝中潜力股竟然这么多,队形相当一致,纷纷打卡留言写下自己最关心的问题,差点挤爆后台,很好,可以的,给你们点一百个赞!
不过也难怪大家热情如此高涨,剑桥大学在世界人民心中的地位那都是有目共睹的,所以剑桥大门的正确的打开方式是怎样的呢?

1.请问如果想申剑桥教育学专业,A-level选课除了官网上的申请条件还有什么其他的隐性要求吗?

The entry requirements are on the website and will specify if a particular subject is required at A level, this tends to be the case for Science subjects. For Education there are no specific subjects required, however some Colleges may require you to have taken a subject relevant to the track you wish to study (Education is split into Education, Psychology and Learning; Education, Policy and International Development; and Education, English, Drama and the Arts). You can check with an individual College what their requirements are should you have a particular College in mind that you wish to apply to. 
一般入学条件在网站上有,如果有具体A level科目要求也会列出来,科学相关科目基本是这样。教育专业没有特定的科目要求,不过剑桥有些学院可能会要求你学习过教育分支某一相关科目(教育分成教育、心理与学习;教育、政策与国际发展;教育、英语、戏剧与艺术)。如果心里已经有目标学院,那么就可以到具体学院信息下查询入学要求。

2.剑桥对A-level重考是持有怎么样的态度?
We wouldn’t be too concerned by a small number of resits. If there are extenuating circumstances e.g. illness that would explain poor performance please make sure the teacher notifies us in the teacher reference as well. If someone has a large number of resits with no clear reason why we may be more concerned as there are not generally opportunities to resit exams here at Cambridge so we would look to admit students who can generally ‘get it right first time’.
小规模重考不是太大问题。如果是情有可原的理由(比如说疾病)可以解释为什么没考好,老师一定要在推荐信中说明。如果没有明确的理由大面积重考的学生可能不太容易被接受,因为剑桥平时学习一般没有重考机会,所以我们想要的是“一次就过”的学生。

3.剑桥对于在英国本土读A-level课程的学生和在国内读Alevel的高中生本科申请侧重点上有什么不同?
They would be the same –A*A*A for Science courses and A*AA for Humanities. We don’t have any quotas for international v domestic students, we are looking for the best students from anywhere in the world. The only extra requirement would be English language requirements –we would ask for an IELTS 7.5, with 7.0 or above in each element, achieved in one sitting. But as you are studying a qualification in English hopefully this should be achievable!
入学条件上是一视同仁的,科学课程要求A*A*A,人文要求A*AA。剑桥对于国际生和本土学生没有配额限制,我们希望招募世界各地的优秀学生来此学习。对国际生唯一的额外要求就是语言,剑桥要求雅思7.5单项不低于7.0,一次考试全部达到,不过对于正在学习英国证书的学生来说,能达到的机会还是很大的!

4.在申请过程中, A-level, preinterview笔试和面试分别占多大的比重?
There isn’t one! We look at students on a very individual basis so we will consider a number of academic areas but their weighting will depend on the student – some do better in exams and some at interview, for example. We will look at your grades and predicted grades, personal statement, teacher reference, written assessment and interview. So just try to represent yourself as best you can in every aspect of the application!

并没有这样的规定!我们看学生都是按照不同个体来对待的,我们会考虑学术的很多方面,但是具体比重取决于学生本人,比方说有人擅长考试有人面试表现很好。我们会综合参考你的成绩和预估成绩、PS、老师推荐信、笔试与面试。所以在申请中尽量展现出每一面最好的自己吧!


5.想问下剑桥面试有哪些注意事项,面试官最看重学生的哪些方面?
There are some useful references online for this 
https://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.uk/applying/interviews
The interview is academic based and is conducted by a specialist in the area of study you are applying for. It is designed to be similar in format to the small group/ individual teaching style Cambridge is known for, the ‘supervisions’. The interviewer(s) will start with questions related to either your personal statement or what you have been studying in school and then will move to more challenging questions that are designed to stretch you. They are interested in how you think so won’t expect the correct answer right away, but make sure you can explain your reasoning out loud. It is fine to ask questions, the interviewer is there to help you, they aren’t trying to catch you out. Remember that the interview is only one part of the application process (see Q4).
剑桥网站上有面试相关的有用参考资料
https://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.uk/applying/interviews
剑桥面试是以学术为主,是由你所申领域的专家来面试的。有点类似于剑桥小组/个人教学模式中的‘supervisions’。面试最开始会问你关于PS上的问题或者是在高中时候学了什么,然后会转到为了拓宽你个人可能性的一些有挑战性的问题。面试老师感兴趣的是你怎样思考,所以不会要求你立马就给出正确答案,但是你应该大声地解释你的理由。问问题也是可以的,面试官也会帮助你,面试的过程并不是为了挑刺。大家要记住面试只是申请过程中的一部分而已。
6.如果alevel成绩达到了学校的要求,自身没有课外活动会影响录取吗?
At Cambridge extra-curricular activities which aren’t related to the subject you are applying for don’t form part of the application decision. We are however interested in ‘super-curricular’ activities which are activities you undertake outside of class time which relate to the subject you are applying for. This can be any number of things but will demonstrate to us your interest and motivation to study your subject of choice. Make sure in your personal statement you tell us about these activities. The statement should be around 80% on academics and super curricular and 20% extracurricular.
在剑桥,与申请科目无关的课外活动是不计入录取因素的。而我们感兴趣的是你课外参加的与申请科目相关的“课程活动”。很多类型的活动都可以,只要是能展现你对所选科目的个性兴趣和动机就行。确保自己在PS中列出了这些活动。PS的内容应该80%是围绕学术与“课程活动”,20%是围绕课外活动。

7.想申请剑桥建筑专业 Ps和作品集要怎么准备?有什么好的建议?
All Architecture applicants invited to interview are expected to show a portfolio of recent work at the interview but this isn`t expected to be work of an architectural nature (e.g. plans, sections etc.).
Admissions Tutors want to see something that illustrates your interests, experience and ability in the visual and material arts. This may include drawings, paintings, sculpture and/or photography may also be included. It`s usually sufficient for three-dimensional work to be exhibited in photographs.
A sketchbook with ongoing drawings is extremely helpful and applicants are encouraged to take one to the interview. It may be in any media (pencil, charcoal, crayon etc.) and should include a variety of subject matter. The work can be material prepared for school-leaving examinations but creative work executed outside formal courses is also welcome.
Portfolio requirements vary from College to College. Please see the Department website and individual College websites for further guidance.
所有获得面试邀请的建筑申请者都要在面试时展示自己最近的作品集,但不能是建筑结构图(比如说蓝图、截面等)。
面试官想看到的是能说明你的兴趣、经历和能力的艺术作品,可以是草图、打印、雕塑或者摄影作品。三维立体作品可以在照片中展示。
连续的写生簿也是非常有帮助的,最好面试的时候能带一本去。可以是任何一种(铅笔、炭笔、蜡笔等),应该包括很多专业相关的东西。可以是毕业考试时候准备的材料,不过也欢迎正式课堂以外的创意作品。
学院跟学院之间的作品集要求还不同,具体请参考科系网站和学院网站,查找更多具体消息。

8.很多人说申请G5学校最好四科比较有优势,想问下剑桥对此有什么看法?
 You can apply to up to 5 UK universities through UCAS, although you must choose between Oxford and Cambridge. You can only apply to one course at Cambridge. We would expect that you are applying to similar courses at each of your chosen institutions. You are demonstrating your interest in a particular subject to us throughout the application process, so if you are applying to more than one subject area this would be counterproductive. That said, courses at different universities may not all have the exact same name and that is fine as long as they are in the same subject area.
通过UCAS你可以同时申请5所英国大学,但是牛津和剑桥只能选一个。你只能申请剑桥的一门课程,我们希望所选院校你能都申请相似的课程。通过申请向我们表明你对某一科目的兴趣,如果你申请不止一个科目领域,那反倒会有不利。不同大学的课程可能不是都用一个课程名,不过只要是相同领域的就行。

9.剑桥各个学院要求是否有出入,如果自己想要申请的目标学院没有被录取是否可以调剂到其他的学院?
The requirements are similar across the Colleges, and the standard university offer is indicated on our website, however Colleges may have slightly different requirements. It is best to check on the individual College’s website if you have a particular one in mind. You must choose one College to apply to, or make an open application and we will allocate you to a College. This is the College that will assess your application, however we do have a moderation system known as the pool. This means that other Colleges can view applications from good applicants who aren’t accepted by their original College, so it is possible to receive an offer from a different College to the one you applied to.
剑桥各学院要求类似,标准录取要求网站上有明确给出,不过学院之间的入学要求可能会有细微的不同,如果有目标学院最好到学院网站下具体查询。申请的时候必须指定一所学院或者开放申请听学校安排。将由这所学院审核你的申请,不过剑桥也有一个调剂系统叫做pool抽选系统,也就是说别的学院也可以查看并没有申请他们学院的优秀申请者,所以你有可能收到的录取不是一开始申请的学院给你发的。

10.在准备申请的过程中,除了成绩和英语还有什么是需要提前准备的?
You will also write a personal statement as part of your UCAS application (see Q6), and there will be a written assessment. The format for this varies depending on the subject you are applying for but all the information will be on our website on the relevant course page. Most assessments take place either at the beginning of November or on the day of your interview, depending on subject. There are practice papers on the website for you to look over. Top tip: make sure you practice under timed conditions. You can also prepare for the interview by reading over your personal statement and brushing up on the topics you are studying at school.
你还需要写一份PS作为UCAS申请的一部分,还有笔试考试。考试形式取决于所申科目,但所有信息都能在网站相关课程页面找到。大多数测试都安排在十一月初或者是面试当天,因科目而异。网站上有练习试卷可以查看。重要建议:练习的时候要注意把控时间。准备面试也可以好好读一读你的PS,过一过上学时学过的那些课题。

11.最近几年申请人数有上升趋势,那会不会提高各方面的成绩要求?剑桥对中国学生有没有刻意控制录取比例?
We don’t have any quotas for international students or students from any particular countries –except in Medicine where the government restricts how many international students we can take. We are looking for the best and brightest students regardless of background or nationality. Our entry requirements are already very high so we aren’t planning on increasing them any time soon. Many students that we give an offer to do actually exceed their offer however so there are a lot of high performing students out there! Our acceptance rate is actually about 20% which is far higher than that of Harvard for example, which is 5%.

剑桥没有国际生招生配额或者特定国家招生配额-除了医学,政府限制了医学专业能招多少国际生。我们寻找的是最优秀和最聪明的学生,不论背景和国籍。剑桥的入学要求已经很高了,目前我们并没有打算要再提高条件。很多学生实际成绩超过offer,然而也有很多高分学生与剑桥无缘。剑桥实际录取率大约20%左右,远超哈佛的5%。


剑桥申请不易,掌握更多信息申请上才更有把握,你准备好了吗?
