Verification of Music Qualifications

 

Music qualifications entered by applicants must be verified on or before the deadline of 21 April 2021 (11:59 pm) via one of the following options:

  1. School applicants are advised to produce their certificates to their schools for verification of their qualifications via the JUPAS online application system which is the most convenient approach.  As such, they are not required to 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.

  2. If applicants' certificate cannot be verified by schools, they can submit certified true copies Note of these certificates with the subject grades to the JUPAS Office via email at info@jupas.edu.hk provided that the copies are clearly marked with the application numbers at the upper right corner.

    Applicants SHOULD NOT send the original documents by post to the JUPAS Office to prevent the possibility of them being lost in the mails.  The JUPAS Office will not be responsible for documents lost in the mails.

  Note: Certified true copies are copies of the certificates (i.e. NOT the original documents) which have been certified by school principals, or by the issuing authorities concerned, or by a notary public.  The name, status and position of the person certifying the copies must be clearly stated.
     
   

Alternatively, applicants may request the issuing authorities concerned to provide written proof of the qualifications they have attained, and submit such proof to the JUPAS Office via email at info@jupas.edu.hk.

Should there be multiple submissions of the same qualification, only the qualification with the highest level / score attained will be verified by the JUPAS Office.

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

Deadline for Verification of Music Qualifications

The deadline for verifying these qualifications by schools (for school applicants) via the JUPAS online application system / submitting copies of these certificates to the JUPAS Office via email is 21 April 2021 (11:59 pm).

Late submission / verification will NOT be accepted.

Qualifications not verified by schools (for school applicants) or the JUPAS Office by the specified deadline (i.e. 21 April 2021 (11:59 pm)) will NOT be taken into consideration by the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions.

Points to NoteUpdated

 

In the consideration of music qualifications, the following will NOT be accepted:

  1. "equivalent" qualifications;

  2. qualifications not on the List of Music Qualifications;

  3. online results / reports; and

  4. provisional results.

Should there be any discrepancies between the information entered by the applicants and the information contained in the supporting documents submitted to the JUPAS Office, the latter (i.e. information contained in the supporting documents) is final.  Information of music qualification will be amended by the JUPAS Office according to the information contained in the supporting documents without further notice.  Applicants can log on their JUPAS accounts to check the amended information, if any, 2 working days after the supporting documents are received by the JUPAS Office.

Applicants should note that it will be entirely up to the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions to decide whether or not and how their music qualifications will be taken into consideration for admission purposes.  Applicants should read carefully the general entrance requirements and individual programme requirements of the respective institutions.  Applicant should also consult the specified requirements of the respective institutions and their programmes listed on the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions' and the SSSDP institutions' websites to ensure meeting the specified requirements.

The final decision on admission will be subject to the authentication of the qualifications as listed in the applications of the applicants.  Applicants may be requested to produce the original copies of the supporting documents when required.  If they fail to do so, the JUPAS applications of those applicants may be disqualified, or the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions may withdraw or amend their offers, or cancel their registration / enrolment, or terminate the studies of those applicants.
