2012 JUPAS (HKDSE) Admission Scores

For applicants who have fulfilled the minimum entrance requirements, admission scores are calculated for use in admission selection.

The information contained here is based on the admission scores (with weighting applied where appropriate) of offered applicants in the 2012 JUPAS main round admission exercise. Sample cases of students having the same median and lower quartile scores are presented for reference. Students who were admitted through special admission routes (principal's nominations, sports talents and disabled applicants) are not included in the calculation.

Students are reminded that because of the different weightings adopted, the admission scores are not comparable across programmes. The sample cases are for reference only and should not be used to predict the chance of admission. The selection criteria vary each year, and many types of scores are used in the selection process. In addition to public examination results, other factors (such as band choices, interview performance, etc.) may also be considered.
