Points to Note

Eligible applicants submitting requests for reconsideration of applications based on RR results can be assured that they will NOT be disadvantaged in any respect if

  1. they can fulfil all the necessary entrance requirements of the programmes concerned; and

  2. their new positions on the respective merit order lists (redetermined taking into account their RR results, banding of programme choices, interview performance, if applicable, and other factors) are higher than the Main Round cut-off points (i.e. the last applicant admitted) of the programmes concerned.

Having fulfilled the above requirements, these applicants will be offered admissions to the programmes concerned, regardless of whether the quota of those programmes have already been filled.

Special Notes to Applicants WITH Main Round Offers

Applicants WITH Main Round offers should place the programmes they wish to be reconsidered for "better" offers ABOVE the programmes they have been offered in the Main Round.  Only the programmes placed ABOVE those which applicants have been offered in the Main Round will be reconsidered by the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and / or the SSSDP institutions.

Applicants are NOT allowed, at this stage, to delete the programmes they have been offered in the Main Round or to place such programmes as their first choice.

Once applicants are given "better" offers (i.e. the highest preferred programmes of their choices, and also the FINAL offers in the same academic year (2018 – 2019)) after reconsideration of their applications based on RR results, their original Main Round offers will be withdrawn regardless of whether they have paid the acceptance fees of HK$5,000 / indicated their acceptance of the "better" offers via their JUPAS accounts (as appropriate) or completed their registration / enrolment procedures at the institutions offering them admissions.  They will NOT be reconsidered for admission to any other programmes offered under JUPAS in the same academic year (2018 – 2019).

In this regard, applicants who are already satisfied with their Main Round offers and / or do not wish to be reconsidered for "better" offers NEED NOT submit requests for reconsideration of applications based on RR results.
