Selection / Amendment of Programme Choices

Modification of Programme Choices (after Release of HKDSE Examination Results)

Modification of Programme Choices: My DRAFT Programme Choices

ALL applicants may modify their programme choices after the release of the HKDSE Examination results during their allotted time-slot during the period 12 July (10:00 am) – 14 July 2018 (6:00 pm)*.  A time-slot will be allocated to each applicant for modification of programme choices.  Applicants should log on their JUPAS accounts to check the time-slots allocated to them for modifications of programme choices as from 13 June 2018 (9:00 am).

The allotted time-slot for each applicant will NOT be changed under any circumstances.

During the allotted time-slots, applicants may modify their programme choices in any of the following options:

  • REPLACE up to 5 programme choices on the programme choice lists with new programmes / ADD a maximum of 5 new programmes to the original programme choice lists (as long as the total number of programme choices does not exceed 20)

  • CHANGE the preference order of the programme choices

  • DELETE programmes from the programme choice lists

During the allotted time-slots, applicants are allowed to modify their programme choices only ONCE.  No fee will be charged.

Applicants should note that the JUPAS online application system will be closed temporarily during 3:00 am – 6:00 am daily for system maintenance.

To facilitate applicants in completing the modification of programme choices during the allotted time-slots, the JUPAS Office will replace applicants' programme choices in "My DRAFT Programme Choices" by those in "My CONFIRMED Programme Choices" on 5 July 2018 (10:00 am – 12:00 noon).

Applicants who wish to keep a record of their draft programme choices should do so before 5 July 2018 (10:00 am).

Preparation for Modifying the Programme Choices

Applicants should:

Notes on Submission of Programme Choices

Applicants should note that any programme choices contained in "My DRAFT Programme Choices" are their working drafts only and would NEITHER be:

  1. considered by the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions; nor

  2. automatically submitted to "My CONFIRMED Programme Choices" under any circumstances.

Applicants are therefore strongly reminded that they MUST submit their programme choices contained in "My DRAFT Programme Choices" to "My CONFIRMED Programme Choices" in order to be considered by the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and / or the SSSDP institutions.

Confirmation of Successful Modification of Programme Choices: My CONFIRMED Programme Choices

After successful modifications of programme choices, there will be confirmation pages showing the programme choices selected and saved into applicants' JUPAS accounts.  Applicants should print the confirmation pages as record of the programme choices they have selected and submitted.  These will be the applicants' FINAL programme choice lists to be considered by the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and / or the SSSDP institutions for the compilation of the merit order lists for the iteration process.

Applicants will also receive emails^ and SMS^ from the JUPAS Office upon successful modifications of programme choices.

It is applicants' responsibilities to check for such messages.  Applicants should enquire at the JUPAS Office immediately if they do not receive such messages after completing the relevant procedures.

Applicants should retain copies of the confirmation pages and confirmation emails as proof that their programme choices have successfully been modified.  In the event of any disputes or queries, the JUPAS Office will ONLY accept these printed pages as official evidence.  No other documentation in hard copy or electronic form will be accepted.

Applicants are also advised to log on their JUPAS accounts again to check and confirm that their programme choices have successfully been modified and saved.

Late submission / further modification will NOT be accepted.

 Except for some applicants with upgraded HKDSE Examination results on subject levels / grades after rechecking and remarking (RR results) who submit requests for reconsideration of applications based on RR results and are made "better" offers

Applicants Who DO NOT WISH to Modify Their Programme Choices

Applicants who do not wish to modify their programme choices NEED NOT modify their programme choices via their JUPAS accounts during their allotted time-slots.  Their programme choice lists as at the deadline for updating of programme choices (i.e. 23 May 2018 (11:59 pm)) will be considered by the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and / or the SSSDP institutions.  Such applicants are still advised to log on their JUPAS accounts to check their programme choices.

^ Emails and SMS are delivered via third party network providers and therefore the JUPAS Office is not responsible for any delay, loss, transfer, amendment or damage arising from the transmission process via third party network providers.

Should there be any discrepancies between information contained in emails and SMS and applicants' JUPAS accounts, the information contained in the latter (i.e. the JUPAS accounts) is final.

Applicants are strongly advised to log on their JUPAS accounts to double-check the related information.
