  2. Name in Chinese

  3. Sex

HKID Card Number

The HKID card numbers which the applicants have used to register their JUPAS accounts MUST BE IDENTICAL to those used to register for their HKDSE Examination at the HKEAA.  Applicants who have used different identity documents to register for different sittings in the HKDSE Examination must notify the JUPAS Office IMMEDIATELY.  If they fail to do so, the JUPAS Office, the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions will NOT be able to obtain ALL the HKDSE Examination results (past and / or current) of the applicants concerned from the HKEAA.  In such cases, these applications may be disadvantaged since the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions would not be able to review all the applicants' sittings in their HKDSE Examination.

Local / Non-local Status

According to the Education Bureau (EDB), for the purpose of admission to post-secondary programmes, definition of local and non-local applicants is as listed here.

For Applicants Who Belong to Categories LS2, LS4 – 9 in Accordance with EDB's "Definition of Local Applicants"

Notwithstanding that JUPAS accepts their applications, they should not assume that their "local" status will remain unchanged after the acceptance of their applications.

It is applicants' responsibilities to report to the JUPAS Office in writing immediately should there be any changes to their identity documents which affect their status as "local" or "non-local" applicant as defined in EDB's Definition of Local Applicants (including any updates / renewal of their identity documents) ("Reporting Requirements"). Their "local" status may change to reflect the changes to their identity documents.

Applicants who fail to provide the updated / renewed identity documents proving they are local students / applicants ("valid identity documents") by the specified deadline (i.e. 11 July 2020) will be considered as non-local applicants.  Although these non-local applicants may remain in the JUPAS pool, they will be considered by the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions with other non-local applicants applying via the non-JUPAS route.  Non-local applicants, when admitted by the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions, will be required to pay higher tuition fees than local students.

For applicants who could produce valid identity documents to the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and / or the SSSDP institutions (NOT to the JUPAS Office which will NOT accept them after the deadline of 11 July 2020) during admission / registration, the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions will determine their student status as "local" or "non-local" at that time.  These applicants should therefore check their status with the institutions accordingly. 

If applicants make any false statements or omit to state any significant information in their online application forms, or if they make any misrepresentation concerning their applications, or if they fail to comply with the "Reporting Requirements", their applications 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 their studies.  Any fees paid will not be refunded or transferred to another year / other application.

Non-local students are not covered under the SSSDP (Details)

Communication Information

The JUPAS Office, the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions will contact applicants via one or more of the following channels:

  1. phone (home and mobile);

  2. personal email#^;

  3. SMS^;

  4. mail; or

  5. the message boxes in applicants' JUPAS accounts.

Applicants should therefore ensure that their contact information (such as email addresses, phone numbers and mailing addresses, etc.) is correct, otherwise they may not receive important messages and correspondence from the JUPAS Office, the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions.

Please refer to the section on Communication Channels.

Since important messages and correspondence from the JUPAS Office, the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions will be sent via applicants' mobile phone numbers and / or mailing addresses, applicants SHOULD NEVER share their mobile phone numbers or mailing addresses with other applicants in order to protect any information related to their JUPAS applications.

As email is one of the channels that the JUPAS Office, the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions will use to communicate with applicants, applicants must ensure that the setting of their personal email accounts will not filter out or place such correspondence in the trash / junk bins.

^ Emails and SMS are delivered via third party network providers and therefore the JUPAS Office is not responsible for any delay, loss, transfer, amendment or damage arising from the transmission process via third party network providers.

Should there be any discrepancies between information contained in emails and SMS and applicants' JUPAS accounts, the information contained in the latter (i.e. the JUPAS accounts) is final.

Applicants are strongly advised to log on their JUPAS accounts to double-check the related information.
