Applicants who have received Main Round offers and wish to accept the Main Round offers should accept the offers, regardless of whether the Main Round offers are UGC-funded programmes, HKMU self-financing programmes or SSSDP programmes, because the Main Round offers are the BEST AND ONLY offers to be made in the same academic year (2022 – 2023) and are of the highest possible priority on their programme choice lists in the case that applicants do not have RR results, or do not receive "better" offers after they have submitted requests for reconsideration of applications based on RR results.

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.

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.
