Admissions Scores Calculation
Calculation of Scores for Applicants with More than One Sitting in HKDSE Examination
In general, most of the programmes offered by HKU consider the best results achieved by candidates in different combination of sittings, except for a few programmes which only consider the latest results. Few programmes may also impose a penalty on HKDSE repeaters. The policy on the calculation of scores in combined sittings of HKDSE for the 2020-21 exercise will be finalized at a later stage, which will be posted on our website https://www.hku.hk/dse.
