Five more Mainland higher education institutions will admit Hong Kong students by exempting them from taking the joint entrance examination, bringing the total number to 127.

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 for the 2021-22 academic year.

Participating institutions will admit students based on their Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) Examination results and exempt them from taking the Joint Entrance Examination for Mainland Institutions.

Students sitting for the HKDSE Examination in 2021 can apply for the scheme through the designated website between March 1 and 20, 2021, and review and confirm application verification results before March 31.

Those who have passed the application verification should settle the application fee by April 23. Interviews will then be arranged and admission results will be announced in late July next year.

Meanwhile, the School Principal Nomination Scheme is available for each secondary school to nominate up to eight students.

The scheme’s minimum entrance requirement remains unchanged. 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.

The Virtual Mainland Higher Education Expo will be held from December 5 to 11 for students, teachers and parents to gain a better understanding of the admission scheme and the participating institutions.
