Career Opportunities

Graduates can develop careers in professional accounting firms and in government, commercial and industrial sectors.

 

 

The Programme will consider Extended Part of Mathematics (Module 1 or 2) as an unspecified elective subject in meeting the entrance requirements and as a whole subject in score calculation.

The Programme will consider all Applied Learning subjects with "Attained with Distinction (I)" or above as an unspecified elective subject.

In general, the scores for the Applied Learning subjects (Category B) are converted as follows:

Attained with Distinction II=4, Attained with Distinction I=3, Attained=2

The Programme will NOT consider any Other Language subjects as an unspecified elective subject.

  1. Upon score calculation and compilation of interview results (if any), eligible applicants will be given a rank in the Merit Order List to the JUPAS Office. The Merit Order List will be generated according to the priority given to the list of Tie-breakers. During the admissions process, the following are the most commonly used tie-breakers by the programmes offered by the University.
     
    The most commonly used tie-breakers by the programmes offered by the University
    Tie-breakers Remarks
    HKDSE Academic Score (plus interview score, if any) Derived from the score formula of individual programme
    (The programme will consider the best 6 HKDSE subjects in Academic Score calculation.)

    Band Band A applicants will be ranked first then Band B, and so on.
    A (Prog. Choice 1 - 3) >

    D (Prog. Choice 11 - 15) >
    E (Prog. Choice 16 - 20)

  2. If a programme ranks the tie-breakers as: '1' to 'HKDSE Academic Score', '2' to 'Band', '3' to 'HKDSE Standard + 1 best X Subject Score', applicants with highest HKDSE Academic Score will be ranked first. If there are two applicants having the same HKDSE Academic Score, the one who places the programme in a higher band choice will be ranked higher. If the two applicants are the same on the first 2 tie-breakers, their HKDSE Standard + 1 best X Subject Score will be compared, the one with higher HKDSE Standard + 1 best X Subject Score will be given a higher rank, and so on.

 

 

Note:

As programmes select students not only on the basis of the HKDSE results, the actual results of the students admitted to each programme may vary from year to year (depending on the overall results achieved by applicants in a particular year, the number of applicants applying to the programme, changes in selection criteria, etc.).
