    All applicants (school and non-school applicants) who wish to apply for admission to the UGC-funded full-time bachelor's degree programmes offered by the 8 UGC-funded institutions, self-financing full-time bachelor's degree programmes offered by OUHK, the SSSDP full-time bachelor's degree programmes offered by the SSSDP institutions, the UGC-funded full-time associate degree programmes offered by CityU, and UGC-funded full-time higher diploma programmes offered by EdUHK and PolyU on the strength of their HKDSE Examination results MUST apply via JUPAS.  Assessment of such applicants applying via JUPAS will be based mainly on their HKDSE Examination results, while other factors will be considered as appropriate.

  2. Applicants with both HKDSE Examination AND other academic results

    Applicants with both HKDSE Examination AND other academic results whose HKDSE Examination results ALONE will make them eligible for application for admission to the programmes offered under JUPAS can apply either via JUPAS or non-JUPAS, but NOT both.  Assessment of such applicants applying via JUPAS will be based mainly on their HKDSE Examination results, while other factors will be considered as appropriate.

Concurrent Applications

Applicants with both HKDSE Examination AND other academic results and whose HKDSE Examination results or other academic results alone would make them eligible for application for admission to the programmes offered under JUPAS can apply

EITHER: via JUPAS on the strength of their HKDSE Examination results

OR: via non-JUPAS on the strength of their other academic results.

These applicants, however, CANNOT apply for admission via BOTH JUPAS and non-JUPAS to any programmes offered under JUPAS in the same academic year.  They MUST cancel either their JUPAS or non-JUPAS applications before they can proceed further.
