Education abroad, from personal experience

We decided to share with readers the story of Valeria Bannikova — Russian schoolgirl, who is studying in England.

I thought about studying in England when I was in 9th grade ordinary high school. Then this idea was more of a dream than a reality. In the same year I went to another teacher of English, and the idea turned into a dream, and then to the target, which I carried out in October 2011. I went to State College in southern England. The college called Chichester College, located in he West Sussex — the city of the same name, Chichester. I chose this college on several criteria, and chief among them was the highest ranked applicants to universities, as well as security, as the population of a small city, plus I was attracted by the proximity of both the sea (Strait), as well as to London. The program to which I received a called A-level. For training you choose three or four items, depending on what you want to study at university. I chose business, psychology and mathematics, as the university I want to study marketing.

The school year has begun from September 3. The first week all the kids only know each other, the city, the college and all the features of moving to a new country. I live in family (host-family), but there is the opportunity to stay in a hostel. All three hostels are located on a large campus, close to the city center. The town itself is very small, but at the same time beautiful and uyutnyy.V this issue, we decided to share with the readers of the history of Valerie Bannikova -Russian schoolgirl, who is studying in England.

Education in the UK requires a lot of effort. Incredibly difficult to come to England and one to adapt to a new lifestyle. The first months were the most difficult — until you get used to it, but at the college are all very friendly and helpful. Just want to say that you need to take the initiative themselves and seek to get noticed and helped, because in a lot of college students and all require attention, especially in the first weeks of a brand new residence.

Each item is on 4.5 hours per week, one lesson lasts 3 hours with a break of 30 minutes. Training takes place 5 days a week, every Wednesday is usually completed in 1345 and followed by a time when all involved in sports or something else, depending on interest. On campus there is a gym, sports court for tennis, playground for football and basketball.

Education is based on the principle of the pyramid, the meaning of which is the distribution of the load. It depends on how our brain perceives the information, and what methods are more optimal for passing examinations. Just want to say that it is not the Russian school and goof wee one fails. The student should clearly understand that only zeal can achieve results. Yes, once in college exams will scare, and there should be a separate talk about them. Exams for A-level set «AQA — exam board».

The organization of the tests and checks these examinations, the inspection system is very complex. You can know the whole thing by heart, you can only to understand it, to hand over all trial exams perfectly, getting only positive marks for tests, essays, and so on. D., But you can just do not know how to apply their knowledge to the system. So no special training is necessary.

But the ways of admission to universities in England there are many. I have to say, difficulties arise at all during the January exams, almost all my friends have passed the minimum required score. Many were not what they had hoped and predicted that the teachers who were also upset. As I later learned, this is a psychological move — to motivate us even more to successful completion of the summer exams. Another problem that has arisen is that the British government has decided to remove the January exams, and eventually all of the modules in each subject will have to take in May and June, which does not look very attractive. As a result, after studying the first year A-level, I learned about a few other programs, of which there is no word pas expanses of the Russian Internet. For example, VTES, which offers a variation of subjects for university admission, the only difference is that there are no exams and study you, for example, only business, or only computer science and so on, depending again on what you will be studying in higher school. The College and the staff was the huge support in obtaining information about the different options for university, for it is really like to thank them.
