Special Notes to Applicants who Have Applied for Rechecking and Remarking of HKDSE Examination Results with Main Round Offers

Eligibility of Submitting Request for Reconsideration of Application

Only applicants who have obtained upgraded HKDSE Examination results on subject levels / grades after rechecking and remarking (RR Results), regardless of whether they have been given or have accepted their Main Round offers are eligible to submit requests for reconsideration of their applications based on RR results WITH or WITHOUT modifications of programme choices.

Accepting Main Round Offers

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:

  1. are the BEST AND ONLY offers to be made in the same academic year (2024 – 2025); and

  2. are of the highest possible priority on their programme choice lists in the case that applicants

I.   do not have RR results; or

II.  do not receive "better" offers after they have submitted requests for reconsideration of applications based on RR results.
