已更正. Please see the following explainations:
Cat 1 -In line with general population of JUPAS applicants for the particular programme you have selected
we will simply look at your academic results  ...


wunma

So Cat 1 has greater chance for admission. Am I correct?

How about non-JUPAS? The same classification?

ANChan59,
嘗試說清楚點, 如發覺有錯請知情人士更正.
以HKU, CU同HKUST為例, 各自有一套計分法, 得出一個scores來為所有報讀生排名, 如面試表現好, 會有額外分加在total scores上.
UST中學會考分同高考分是4比6; CU ...


wunma

Thanks for your explanation, so Cat 3 is better chance than Cat 1 & 2 if exam results being equal.

For the weighed average scores of HKCEE & HKAL are noted. I did attend both CUHK and HKU's admission talks this year, the weighting of different school may have different, like Medicine CUHK, 3:7 and not necessary 5:5. We may need to double confirm with the admission office of individual university.

As our kids may sit for HKDSE in coming years, so may be no more weighed scores, just single examination like HKDSE, IBDP, GCE-AL etc.

對, 不同program可能rating又不同, 如某些會乘大英文科公開試的成績.

Yes, it's different for different universities, different faculties, different proproams and for different routes. The whole thing is extremely complicated.

Strategy 5 Self-discovery - major & career

We had a large group Christmas party on 25th and many kids of our friends from overseas, UK, USA and Australia had some useful conversations related to program, major and career selection.

A couple of them mentioned that they did some self exploratory analysis in their high school or in junior years of college.

I guess some schools have similar arrangement to help students understand their interests & skills and facilitate them to pick a better program and career. If not pls refer to the following websites may help:

1. Questionnaire to identify your Holland Codes

http://cscc.edu/docs/PACS/assessment.htm#Featured

2. Explanation of Holland Codes and the highest 3 codes match with different majors and careers, two colleges examples listed as reference

http://www.pnc.edu/discover/holland.html

http://career.missouri.edu/resou ... %20Code%20S2010.pdf

http://www.vcu.edu/uc/documents/Discovery_Worksheet_4_page.pdf

I know more than one assessment around for similar application, Holland Code just one of them. If your kid doesn't have any clue about the program and the career, this may be a good starting point.

I am not sure about the assessment only valid for certain age, the same assessment also in my son's school website under career inclination assessment.

In this website, they have different versions for different educational levels.

Strategy 6 - Scholarship

Two years ago, I was a panel member of a scholarship selection panel for a local professional institution. We interviewed 8 of top students, 2-3 were eligible for EAS and only 3 come from famous elite schools (全港名校 - 皇仁、英皇.....), and others are from local elite schools(地區名校 - 林護、鄧顯...).

All of them have two common characteristics:
1. Scholarships from different organizations; and
2. Best student awards from different district.

As a panel member, I felt that they came across other scholarship selection process before; they are clam, presentable and have the passion for the future program and career. It's easy for us to nominate them to get the scholarship of that year.

I strongly recommend our kids apply different scholarships, not just you can get it and make your CV more impressive, also give them a great opportunity to go through the selection process before the university admission process.

Lucky enough, they get some scholarships and really show their capability, character and passion of related discipline of professional. I can guarantee they have better chance to be accepted by that hot program. Even some of the panel members may be come from the university..........

Can you ellaborate more on point 1, like which university.... or any link...

I know HKU, HKPU, HKUST may have programs for certain professionals.... more professional specific and not career discovery.

Thanks so much. Most programs offered by CUHK and HKU not his cup of tea.

Definitely, will be useful for students interested in the programs you mentioned.

My son got some ideas of his future career. From last Christmas onward, we arranged series of shadowing and internship in medical field for him.
