  • More qualify for uni as super scorer emerges
    Date:2018-07-11 

    About 1.4 students are competing for a place in all eight government-funded universities, based on results of the Diploma of Secondary Education Examination announced today.

    A total of 21,205 secondary students achieved the minimum requirements to get into universities. But they will vie for 15,000 University Grants Committee-funded undergraduate places in the eight universities in the new school year.

    These students, about 42 percent of all day-school candidates, obtained level 3 or above in both Chinese and English, and level 2 or above in mathemathics and liberal studies, plus one other elective subject.

    A total of 59,000 candidates sat this year's examination, the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority said.

    It is estimated those who scored 19 points or above have a higher chance to secure the entry ticket to university, similar to last year.

    Authority Secretary General So Kwok-sang, pictured, said more than 14,000 students scored 19 points or above. But getting into a university would also depend on the subject they choose, so the number is merely a reference.

    Although there are fewer candidates, the number of students meeting the general university entrance requirements has risen, so students face "similar competition" this year, said Christina Lee Wong-wai, the authority's director in public examinations.

    Students also had better performance in language exams.

    Some 86.1 percent of day-school candidates passed the Chinese exam, similar to last year, but more students obtained level 3 or above this year, up 1.4 percentage points.

    Some 79.1 percent passed the English exam, up 2.2 percentage points, while the percentage of students obtaining level 3 or above also rose 1.6 percentage point.

    Meanwhile, the DSE welcomed a "super top scorer" who achieved the highest marks since it started in 2012.

    The boy got 5** in eight subjects and an extended part of mathematics, meaning he obtained nine 5** on his report card, making him the "super scoring student."

    A total of six boys and three girls achieved excellent scores of 5** in seven subjects or more.
