A: The HKDSE is increasingly well recognized by overseas universities. In particular, the UK’s UCAS system provides detailed tariff points for HKDSE, so that universities can easily compare HKDSE scores against UK A Levels and use it to consider admission of overseas students from Hong Kong. This is confirmed by the successful entries of CSS HKDSE students to good universities such as Manchester, Durham, London etc.
問：香港中學文憑試 (HKDSE) 於海外大學的認受性如何？
答：香港中學文憑試越來越受到海外大學的認可和重視。特別是英國大學及院校招生事務處 (UCAS) 已將香港中學文憑試納入其分數對照制度。因此，大學可輕易對照英國高級文憑 (A Levels) 與香港中學文憑試的分數，並參考該成績，考慮錄取來自香港的海外學生。啓思中學以往亦有多名學生通過香港中學文憑試而獲得海外知名大學取錄，包括曼徹斯特大學、杜倫大學及倫敦大學等。
Q: What is the proportion of places that Hong Kong universities will reserve for HKDSE & IB diploma students?
A: HKDSE students enter Hong Kong universities through the JUPAS scheme, which accounts for around 80% of Hong Kong university places. IBDP students enter Hong Kong universities through the non-JUPAS scheme. Together with other students from China and overseas, as well as Hong Kong students who have studied other non-local qualifications such as UK A Levels, the non-JUPAS scheme accounts for the remaining 20% or so places.
Q: How successful are CSS past graduates in entering universities and colleges locally and overseas?
