  • Success rate dips for university hopefuls
    Date:2018-08-06 

    Some 35.4 percent of students have been accepted for bachelor's degree programs - one percentage point less than last year - according to the Joint University Programmes Admissions System results that will be announced today.

    The number of students who sat for the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination dropped this year, but the number who secured the minimum scores required for university admission remained about the same.

    Some 46,703 candidates joined JUPAS this year, nearly 1,800 fewer than last year. Among them, 16,538 were accepted for bachelor's programs.

    Six of the nine top scorers getting 5** in seven subjects or more applied for programs at the University of Hong Kong, including the first ever "super scorer" in HKDSE history, Thomas Wong Tsz-hang, who obtained nine 5** on his report card.

    The other five boys and three girls who achieved excellent scores of 5** in seven subjects or more are Michael Lam Ching-wang, Luk Hei, Hubert Wong Ching-ho, Shum Ka-ho, Yuen Wai-him, Lam Yuet-yee, Stephanie Leung Tsz-kiu and Cheris Lee Cheuk-ying.

    HKU offered places to six of the top scorers. Two of them received offers to read bachelor of medicine and bachelor of surgery programs, as did 12 others who obtained 5** in six or more subjects.

    A top scorer has been admitted to the bachelor of dental surgery program. HKU has also admitted 19 athletes through its sports scholarship scheme.

    Three top scorers got offers from Chinese University. One will be studying under the global physician-leadership stream in the faculty of medicine, while the other two will read the global business studies program and global economics and finance program, respectively.

    University of Science and Technology received three students who secured 5** in six subjects. They will be studying global business, while 16 students got into the bachelor of science quantitative finance program under the HKUST Business School.

    Ng Po-shing, director of the club's student guidance center, believes the slight drop in success rate of bachelor programs is due to more places being distributed to the study subsidy scheme for designated professions/sectors full-time bachelor's degree programs, as the number of places in such programs increased to 3,227 from 1,262.

    On more top scorers choosing HKU, Ng attributed it to the reputation of the university, which has a higher international ranking.
