    4.
    Do achievements found in the search results have higher recognition than items that cannot be found in the list?

    NO. It is not possible to include all awards / activities / competitions in the search list. The search list has been formulated according to awards / activities / competitions reported by applicants in the past years. In this respect, it does not mean that achievements found in the search list have higher recognition than items that cannot be found from the search list.

    Applicants can also feel free to key in the name of the award / activity as necessary.

    9.
    How will the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions consider OEA and SLP of applicants?

    OEA information, which is likely to be based on individual's SLP, would be a summary highlight provided by individual applicants and will be considered actively during admission selection.

    As for the SLP, because of the volume and for practical reasons, they or some of them (e.g. those for Band A applicants) will be referred to depending on the programmes and as necessary (e.g. when there are ties, this may give more information to determine the admission priority; they may also be referred to during interviews).

    10.
    How significant is the OEA information in the calculation of admission scores by the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions or the SSSDP institutions? If an applicant obtains 5** in all subjects but does not have any entries under OEA, will this reduce the chance of admission?

    Determination of applicants' suitability for admission is entirely the decisions of the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions, and is entirely independent of the JUPAS Office. Applicants should refer to the general entrance requirements and individual programme requirements for more information.

    14.
    Will the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions consider applicants' SLP?

    Information contained in SLP can help the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions observe the applicants from an all-round perspective. Applicants can therefore choose to submit this information to the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions for reference and consideration.

    15.
    Where should applicants submit their "Personal Statement" / "Self-Account"?

    There is no designated area in the JUPAS online application form for applicants to submit their "Personal Statement" / "Self-Account". Applicants can submit their "Personal Statement" / "Self-Account" in either the "Additional Information" of their OEA portfolio or their SLP.

    The "Additional Information" of their OEA portfolio aims at allowing applicants to describe an interest or activity that has been particularly meaningful to them or has affected their personal growth and life goals, but NOT at testing applicants' language skills.

    The SLP is recognised by the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions as a document of good reference value for admissions purposes.
