With this year’s HKDSE coming to an end, the University of Hong Kong announced yesterday that they would be holding a Joint Programmes Admissions System (Jupas) Information Week next week.

Running from Tuesday until May 20, the event will feature Jupas admission talks for programmes from nine HKU faculties, going through the programme structure and career prospects, admission criteria and interview tips.

There will also be student sharing sessions, individual consultation, campus tours and lab visits.

One of the highlights of the event is to be a talk held by the HKU Admission Office on the new HKU scoring system.

They will explain how the school converts DSE grades Level 5, 5* and 5** into admission scores of 5.5, 7 and 8.5, as well as the best way to arrange the three Band A choices.

HKU said they strongly recommend this year’s Jupas applicants to attend the event, as they will learn important information about dealing with their Jupas choices after HKDSE results are released on July 10.
