Silver-tongued success
Hong Kong students have some incredible educational advantages.

Interest versus ability
It's time for me to choose my future. The GCSEs are getting closer and closer, and that means the end of Year 11 is coming - and we are going to become six formers who will need to tackle A-levels.

No place like home
The world is full of choices when it comes to a top-rated university education. But for students who are doing International Baccalaureate courses in Hong Kong, there is still no place like home.

My pathway to university education
This week we catch up with Claudia Wong, a Brighten student who feels that Hong Kong is the perfect location for nurturing her future educational goals.

Singapore model
A good education is what all parents want for their children. But a good education can often also be an expensive one that not every parent can afford.

The final countdown
Is the work on your desk piling up? Do you lie awake at night wondering what you're going to do after spring term?

Common interview mistakes
When asked why Cardiff Sixth Form College, the best performing A-level school in the UK, has to interview all their candidates, executive director Yasmin Sarwar answered: "We need to separate the well trained from the well brained!" The college had to turn down more than 700 candidates for the 2014 intake.

Flying high
We have all fantasized about flying when we were young. But did you ever think about that dream becoming reality one day and a career for life? The Dragonair Aviation Certificate Programme 2015 under the Dragonair Youth Aviation Academy provides a golden opportunity for those aged between 18 and 25 to get a better understanding of the industry.

Traditional or progressive?
Those responsible for international examinations - including AQA, Edexcel and the authorities behind the IB - regularly update the syllabus in all subjects in order to create more relevant and stimulating material.

Fun way to learn
Children learn through play - so if your pre-schoolers are having trouble focusing in kindy, take them to some live entertainment and you'd be surprised at how much they can pick up.
