【看CP學英文】大學指考分發入學日前放榜,今年整體錄取率91.14%,其中特別的是,有2名高中生採計科目分數在全國前3%,原本成績可以上台大,但後來選擇亞洲大學,因為以他們的成績到亞洲大學就讀,將可獲得360萬元獎學金,由於網路正反討論聲浪都超高,其中一名高中生也針對此事出面親回「抉擇真相」。

The overall admission rate of the Advanced Subjects Test (AST, 指考) this year is 91.14%. Among all the teenagers who took the college entrance test, two students said they received an estimated NT$3.6 million scholarship (US$122,457) to join the Asia University (AU). 

In response to the mixed reactions to their decision, one of the students explained on Saturday why she would decide to go to the AU instead of the National Taiwan University (NTU) on the PTT, the largest Taiwan-based online forum .

談到為何捨棄台大,她表示,因為她的數乙考太差,她的分數只能上台大不採計數學的人類跟歷史系,且她沒考英聽,也沒考學測數學,也因此形同於跟這兩個系斷了緣分。

「嚴格說起來我也沒辦法上台大。」她寫道。

She was only able to join the Anthropology and History Departments at NTU because of her poor math scores, and she didn’t take the English Listening test or the Applied Mathematics test. “Strictly speaking, I can’t go to NTU either,” she wrote.

至於飽受網友質疑的「會流失台大的人脈」,該學生表示,她自認不擅於社交,就算進了台大也不會很活躍,如果要發展人脈的話也可以參加NGO、研討會或是去參加教育部的各種活動。

As for the “loss of NTU’s personal connections” questioned by netizens, the student said that she is not very good at socializing and will not be very active even if she attends NTU. If she wants to develop her network, she can participate in NGOs, seminars or various activities of the Ministry of Education, she explained.

該學生最後表示,至於獎金,未來可能會用這筆錢來投資,但我還沒開始研究未來的產業趨勢跟各家公司的財務報表,大概是明後年才會做的事吧。

Last but not least, the student said that she would keep up with the industry trends and invest her scholarship in her students over the next two years.

貼文一出,網友紛紛回應「說到底,這是你的人生,跟這裡的鄉民一點關係都沒」、「感覺是很有想法的人」、「看得出來你是有好好考慮過了,這樣就好了,自己的人生只有自己能決定」、「別人想去哪就去哪啊,不懂大家在說人脈什麼的在幹嘛」。

The student’s response has received mixed reactions online. One person commented:  “After all this is your life. It has nothing to do with the netizens who commented.” 

Another said: “I feel like you are a thoughtful person,” while the other wrote that you’re the only one who can decide what to do with your life.
