Rechecking and Remarking of HKDSE Examination Results

1 How can applicants submit applications for rechecking and remarking of their HKDSE Examination results?

Applicants should submit applications for rechecking and remarking of their HKDSE Examination results to the HKEAA.  Please contact the HKEAA at 3628 8860 for further details.

Results of rechecking and remarking of HKDSE Examination results will be released by the HKEAA on 9 August 2017.

2 Do applicants have to submit the RR results to the JUPAS Office after they are informed by the HKEAA?

NO.  ALL past and / or current HKDSE Examination results (including RR results as applicable) obtained by applicants will be obtained from the HKEAA by the JUPAS Office, the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions.

In this regard, applicants are required, at the time of application, to authorise, via the JUPAS online application system at the "Declaration" page, the JUPAS Office, the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions to obtain, and the HKEAA to release, their results concerned in support of their applications.  As such, applicants are not required to submit their RR results to the JUPAS Office.

3 Can applicants decline their offers / "better" offers received after reconsideration of applications based on RR results in order to be further considered in the Clearing / Subsequent Rounds?

NO.  Applicants with offers / "better" offers after reconsideration of applications based on RR results have been given offers of the highest possible priority on their programme choice lists for which they have the required rating and thus the offers / "better" offers they received are the BEST AND ONLY offers possible.  They will therefore NOT be reconsidered for admission to any other programmes in the Clearing or Subsequent Rounds, regardless of whether the offers / "better" offers are UGC-funded institution programmes, OUHK self-financing programmes, or SSSDP programmes.

Applicants who have failed to pay the acceptance fees / indicated their acceptance of the "better" offers via their JUPAS accounts (as appropriate) on or before the deadline (i.e. 17 August 2017 (5:00 pm)) or complete the registration / enrolment procedures at the institutions offering them admissions after payments of the acceptance fees / indication of acceptance of the "better" offers will be regarded as having declined their offers / "better" offers, and they will NOT be reconsidered for admission to any other programmes offered under JUPAS in the same academic year (2017 – 2018).

The offers / "better" offers given to such applicants after reconsideration of applications based on RR results may then be offered to other applicants.

Please refer to the Summary of Arrangements for Announcement and Acceptance of Offers.

4 Should applicants accept the Main Round offers while their results of rechecking and remarking of HKDSE Examination results are pending?

Applicants who have received Main Round offers and wish to accept the Main Round offers SHOULD accept the offers (regardless of whether the Main Round offers are UGC-funded institution programmes, OUHK self-financing programmes, or SSSDP programmes) because the Main Round offers are the BEST AND ONLY offers to be made in the same academic year (2017 – 2018) and are of the highest possible priority on their programme choice lists in the case that applicants do not have RR results, or do not receive "better" offers after they have submitted requests for reconsideration of applications based on RR results.

Applicants who have RR results and wish to be reconsidered for offers (if they do not receive Main Round offers) or "better" offers (i.e. programmes with higher preference than the programmes they have been offered in the Main Round) can submit requests for reconsideration of applications based on RR results via their JUPAS accounts on 10 August 2017 (9:00 am – 6:00 pm), regardless of whether they have been given or have accepted their Main Round offers.

Applicants who have paid the acceptance fees for their Main Round offers and wish to accept the "better" offers after reconsideration of their applications based on RR results NEED NOT pay the acceptance fees again for the "better" offers.  However, they MUST log on their JUPAS accounts to indicate their acceptance of the "better" offers by 17 August 2017 (5:00 pm).  The JUPAS Office will arrange for the transfer of the acceptance fees for their Main Round offers to their "better" offers after the indication of their acceptance of the "better" offers.

Please refer to the section on Rechecking and Remarking of HKDSE Examination Results.

5 Can applicants choose to accept either the Main Round offers or the "better" offers after the announcement of the offer results for reconsideration of applications based on RR results?

NO.  Applicants CANNOT choose to accept either the Main Round offers or the "better" offers.  Once applicants are given "better" offers (i.e. the highest preferred programmes of their choices, and also the FINAL offers in the same academic year (2017 – 2018)) after reconsideration of their applications based on RR results, their original Main Round offers will be withdrawn regardless of whether they have paid the acceptance fees of HK$5,000 / indicated their acceptance of the "better" offers via their JUPAS accounts (as appropriate) or completed their registration / enrolment procedures at the institutions offering them admissions.  They will NOT be reconsidered for admission to any other programmes offered under JUPAS in the same academic year (2017 – 2018).

In this regard, applicants who are already satisfied with their Main Round offers and / or do not wish to be reconsidered for "better" offers NEED NOT submit requests for reconsideration of applications based on RR results.

6 If the Main Round offers are newly added programmes during the modifications of programme choices, will these programmes offered in the Main Round still remain in the programme choice lists when applicants submit requests for reconsideration of applications based on RR results?

YES.  The programmes the applicants have been offered in the Main Round, which are newly added programmes during the modifications of programme choices, will still remain in the applicants' programme choice lists when they submit requests for reconsideration of applications based on RR results.

For applicants submitting requests for reconsideration of applications based on RR results WITHOUT modifications of programme choices:

Applicants' programme choices as at the deadline for modification of programme choices after the release of the HKDSE Examination results will be considered by the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and / or the SSSDP institutions.

If the programmes applicants have been offered in the Main Round are their first choice as at the deadline for modification of programme choices and applicants submit requests for reconsideration of applications based on RR results without modifications of programme choices, their requests for reconsideration of applications based on RR results will not be processed.

For applicants submitting requests for reconsideration of applications based on RR results WITH modifications of programme choices:

Applicants' programme choices as at the deadline for updating of programme choices (i.e. 23 May 2017 (11:59 pm)) will be restored to their programme choice lists.  The programmes the applicants have been offered in the Main Round, which are newly added programmes during the modifications of programme choices, will be placed at the end of the programme choice lists.  A maximum of 20 programme choices will only be allowed to save into their JUPAS accounts.

Following from the above, these applicants can only replace up to 4 programme choices on the programme choice lists with new programmes / add a maximum of 4 new programmes to the original programme choice lists (as long as the total number of programme choices does not exceed 20) when submitting requests for reconsideration of applications based on RR results since 1 out of the 5 quota for adding new programme choices has been taken up by the programmes they have been offered in the Main Round which are NOT allowed to be deleted at this stage.

Applicants are reminded that they should place the programmes they wish to be reconsidered for "better" offers ABOVE the programmes they have been offered in the Main Round.  Only the programmes placed ABOVE those which applicants have been offered in the Main Round will be reconsidered by the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and / or the SSSDP institutions.

7 If applicants have submitted requests for reconsideration of applications based on RR results but without modifications of programme choices, can they still submit requests at a later stage for the modifications of programme choices?

YES.  Applicants can still submit separate requests for the modifications of programme choices before the deadline for submission of request for reconsideration of application based on RR results (i.e. 10 August 2017 (6:00 pm)).

Late submission / modification will NOT be entertained.
