Iteration Process

Admission to Institutions

Admission to the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions is on a competitive basis, since the number of places available is normally far less than the number of eligible applicants.  In this regard, satisfying the minimum entrance requirements of the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions or the SSSDP institutions, and their respective programmes does not therefore guarantee admission.

In determining applicants' positions in the respective merit order lists, institutions' programmes will consider NOT ONLY the HKDSE Examination results.  Other factors taken into considerations may include performance in interviews and / or tests, banding of programme choices, HKDSE Examination results achieved by other applicants in the current year, the number of applicants applying to the programmes, other information provided by applicants in the online application forms etc.

Iteration Process

Each programme of the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions will give applicants who have applied to the programme a rating in accordance with its criteria for selection.  Such rating will determine applicants' positions in the merit order list of each programme of their choices.

The JUPAS computer system will perform the "iteration process".  It will match the order of preferences applicants have assigned to their programmes on their programme choice lists with the positions the applicants have been placed in each merit order list of these programmes.  The applicants will then be made offers of the highest priority on their programme choice lists for which they have the required rating.

Applicants are advised to go through the flash demonstration on the iteration process.

The role of the JUPAS Office is solely to facilitate the administration of the applications process.  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.  Enquiries on the institutions' decisions should be directed to the institutions concerned.
