Students looking into overseas education opportunities should consider the right school at their level instead of the academically superior ones. Ruth Rimmer, managing director of Dolphin UK Education, said parents should opt for an appropriate school to help Form Five leavers cope with A-level studies. She said there was no point in parents pushing their children into a top school to secure a place in a good university if they didn't have the ability. 'We help them to choose the right school based on their academic standards,' Ms Rimmer said. Ms Rimmer said school leavers with unsatisfactory HKCEE results might want to study abroad. Students considering to further their tertiary education in Britain could either study A-levels, foundation courses or vocational training to get into universities. Most students who opt for private boarding schools after Form Five will either retake the Year 11 (equivalent to Form Five in Hong Kong) course for the GCSE examination or go into the two-year matriculation course. Students choosing independent schools will receive better all-round education with smaller classes and have better opportunites to take part in extra-curricular activities. Most tutorial colleges offer one year foundation courses leading to university entrance. There are vocational training routes offered by the British Government for students who have a weak academic performance but hope to combine studies with practical working experience. The new two-year GNVA (General National Vocational Qualifications) offers courses in business studies, art and design, and travel and tourism.
