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, but also other factors (e.g. performance in interviews and / or tests, banding of programme choices, HKDSE Examination results of other applicants in the same year, the number of applicants applying to the programmes, other information provided by applicants in the online application forms, etc.).

Please refer to the section on Disqualification and Other Penalties for Making False Statements / Omissions.

Iteration Process

Each programme of the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions will give eligible applicants who have selected 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 positions the applicants have been placed in each merit order list of the programmes on applicants' programme choice lists with the order of preferences applicants have assigned to 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 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 independent of the JUPAS Office.  Enquiries on the institutions' decisions should be directed to the institutions concerned.
