Latest HKSYU Admission Arrangements for Students Affected by Cancellation of Overseas Public Examinations



According to the HKEAA’s announcement on 18 January 2021, the Pearson Edexcel has announced that the GCE and GCSE examinations in May/June 2021 will be cancelled due to the pandemic and the examinations will be replaced by a form of teacher-assessed grades. In addition, it is likely that IB and TOEFL/IELTS may also be cancelled this year. Therefore, HKSYU has the following latest admission arrangements for students affected by the examination cancellations:

1. HKSYU accept the ‘calculated’ grades issued by the relevant GCEAL or IAL examination bodies as evidence of students’ academic ability. For GCEAL/IAL students, the latest teacher assessed grades issued by schools will also be accepted.

2. In case of official cancellation of the IB examination, HKSYU accept the ‘assessed’ diploma points and subject grades issued by IBO as evidence of students’ academic ability.

3. In case of official cancellation of the TOFEL/IELTS tests, HKSYU accepts comparable Duolingo English Test (DET) scores and home testing for meeting English requirement. The minimum DET score requirement is 105.

For offered applicants, confirmation of their conditional offers will be based on the official result documents issued by the relevant recognized authority. Kindly forward the relevant information to the students concerned. For any inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
