The application information that you submit via JUPAS is sent to CityU on a regular basis.

We use this information to identify applicants who meet the entrance requirements of our programmes. Various types of admissions scores are then calculated to facilitate the selection of applicants for admission.
Applicants may be selected for interviews. Our interviews are mostly conducted in June and July, before the announcement of HKDSE examination results. Some interviews may also be conducted after the result announcement. For details of interview arrangements, click here. The selection of students for interview is primarily based on application information [e.g. band choices, exams results (if available), information on the OEA form and the school reference report].
The Main Round offer results will be announced on 8 August 2016 (tentative). The offer you receive in the Main Round is the best offer possible. If you receive an offer in the Main Round, please follow the instructions announced via JUPAS to confirm your acceptance of the admission offer.
