Music Qualifications

1 What are certified true copies?

Certified true copies are copies of the certificates (i.e. NOT the original documents) which have been certified by the issuing authorities concerned, or school principals.

2 How can the applicants confirm if the certified true copies of the certificates of their music qualifications have been received by the JUPAS Office?

Applicants who have submitted certified true copies of their certificates to the JUPAS Office can log on their JUPAS accounts to check the verification status 2 working days after the copies are received by the JUPAS Office.

School applicants who have produced the original copies of their certificates to their schools for verification via the JUPAS online application system need not submit supporting documents to the JUPAS Office again.  They can log on their JUPAS accounts to check the verification status once the qualifications have been verified by their schools.
