We understand the concerns from applicants, parents and teachers about the impacts of the examination disruption or cancellation owing to the COVID-19 outbreak on their applications for admissions. We would like to reassure our applicants that the University will extend flexibility in considering their applications for admission.
The following are the special arrangements for the 2020 intake:
Due to the cancellation of GCEAL/IAL and IB examinations, the University has decided to accept the GCEAL/IAL grades and IB Diploma scores issued by the relevant examination bodies based on adjusted assessment methods for admission.
For students who are proved unable to sit for English language examinations, such as TOEFL and IELTS, due to test cancellation at an official centre, the following alternative English Language tests will be considered as fulfiling the English Language requirements for admission by the University on a case-by-case basis, with relevant proof of test cancellation and the test score reports submitted by the applicants:
Please note that the IELTS Indicator cannot substitute the original IELTS test as fulfilling English language graduation requirement. Students who have not yet fulfilled the English language graduation requirement are required to take the original IELTS test and attain the minimum threshold scores as set by their respective programmes before they can graduate.
We will continue to consider and evaluate the affected applicants on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration all relevant information provided by applicants.
If you have any questions related to undergraduate admissions, you are welcome to contact us.
Given the latest developments in the novel coronavirus epidemic, the University has decided to extend the application deadline for undergraduate admissions (2020-21) to 5 May 2020 (except JUPAS application). Late applications will be accepted until 20 July 2020.
