Remarks:

  • Besides Category A elective subjects, Mathematics extended modules (M1/M2) (except for JS1801) and Category C other language subjects (at grade E or above) (except for JS1200, JS1201, JS1801, JS1805, JS1806 and JS1807) can be used to meet the elective requirement. If students take both M1 and M2, the two modules are counted as one subject only.
  • Applied Learning subjects are not counted as elective subjects, except for JS1041, JS1042, JS1043, JS1044, JS1805, JS1806 and JS1807. Click here for details.
  • As a guide for applicants, a minimum score of 21 (aggregate scores for four core + two elective subjects without weightings applied) is normally expected for successful admission, based on past data.
