More Mainland universities waive exam

October 8, 2018

Seven more Mainland higher education institutions will exempt Hong Kong students from taking the joint entrance examination, bringing the total number to 109.


The Education Bureau today welcomed the announcement by the Ministry of Education on the Scheme for Admission of Hong Kong Students to Mainland Higher Education Institutions 2019.


The scheme will admit students based on their Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination results and exempt them from taking the Joint Entrance Examination for Mainland Institutions.


Candidates sitting for the HKDSE Examination in 2019 can enroll in the scheme.


Meanwhile, the quota on the number of students nominated by each school under the School Principal Nomination Scheme will also increase from six to eight.


The scheme's minimum entrance requirement remains unchanged, that is, students must attain a total score of 10 or above in the HKDSE Examination's four core subjects of Chinese Language, English Language, Mathematics and Liberal Studies, among which none of them should be below two.


For the Scheme for Admission of Hong Kong Students to Mainland Higher Education Institutions, students can apply online from March 1 to 20 and perform confirmation and pay the enrolment fee at the China Education Exchange (HK) Centre from March 11 to 29.


The 2018 Mainland Higher Education Expo will be held at the Convention & Exhibition Centre on December 1 and 2 to give students and parents a better understanding of the scheme.
