Remarks:
  • "Attained with Distinction" in an Applied Learning subject (Category B) will be regarded as having met the requirement of an elective subject.
  • "Attained" level would be regarded as a value-added factor to be considered in totality with the Student Learning Profile (SLP) for the purpose of admission.
  • Other Language subjects (Category C) will be accepted as unspecified elective subjects. The minimum requirement is Grade E.
  • For non-Chinese speaking (NCS) students who have met the specified circumstances as announced by the Education Bureau (EDB), the University accepts alternative qualifications in Chinese Language (only those under GCE, GCSE, and IGCSE) for the purpose of meeting the minimum entrance requirements. From the 2017/18 onwards, the DSE Applied Learning Chinese (for NCS students) will also be accepted as an alternative Chinese Language qualification with “Attained” as the minimum requirement. For programmes which require students to have possessed a good command of Chinese including BEd(Chinese Language), BEd(Chinese History), and BA in Language Studies (both Chinese and English majors), waiver of the DSE Chinese Language requirement will not be granted.
  • Extended Part in Mathematics (i.e. Module 1 / Module 2) will not be counted as elective subjects but will be used as supporting information for admission to our programmes.
  • "Combined sittings" is allowed for HKDSE in the calculation of admission scores.  If an applicant has taken the examination in a subject more than once, only the best result for that subject will be counted.  No score deduction for repeated subjects.
