The HKEAA has revised the DSE examination rules. After approval, qualified schools for children of Hong Kong people in the Mainland can provide examination venues in 2024. In addition to the English oral examination and practical examination, Mainland candidates can take the main subjects and elective subjects in the Mainland.

In an interview with Hong Kong 01, Wang Huicheng, vice-principal of Hong Kong Children's School in the Mainland and Longhua Xinyi School of Hong Kong Peiqiao Academy in Shenzhen, said that he was delighted with the news. The school opened its first DSE class in September last year, and about 74 students will be enrolled in 2024. To take the DSE exam, I believe that the school has all the conditions to become the test center. I hope that the Education Bureau can recognize the school as an official Hong Kong registered school, so that students can be admitted through JUPAS of local students.


Wu Baocheng, a student counselor of the Xueyou Club, believes that the arrangement has little impact on local students, because he believes that the number of applicants from the mainland will not greatly increase due to the convenience of the examination room. At present, DSE uses the level reference method to score, only 5* to 5**. It will be graded on a proportional basis in a way commonly known as "CURVE", and it is estimated that mainland candidates will have more advantages in mathematics and science subjects, and the competition between these two subjects will be fiercer.

Wang Huicheng, vice-principal of Shenzhen Peiqiao Xinyi School, said that the school has opened two DSE classes since September last year, with a total of about 74 students who will take the DSE exam in 2024.

He said that the school had reported to the Hong Kong Education Bureau and the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority six months before the start of classes that although the government encouraged schools to run in the Greater Bay Area, the policy did not cooperate with students taking DSE exams in the Mainland, and it was even more difficult for candidates to take cross-border exams under the epidemic. Therefore, at that time, I tried to hold the DSE test in the mainland examination room, and I was glad that the authorities responded.

Vice President Peiqiao Xinyi: The qualified teachers in the examination room are qualified for the examination work

He said that the HKEAA has no specific details at present, including how to apply to become an examination room, but the school will take the initiative to apply, and stressed that it is confident that it can meet the conditions for becoming an examination room.

He said that the school has been approved by the Shenzhen Education Authority to offer DSE courses, and it has a special team for the Hong Kong course. Its teachers have also been approved by the Hong Kong Education Bureau to teach DSE courses. better.

Most of the students go to the Greater Bay Area with their parents, hoping to be recognized as local students

Wang Huicheng also pointed out that all the students in the school's DSE class hold Hong Kong identity cards, and most of them are families who have moved to the Greater Bay Area for work. He believes that the relevant measures will also facilitate students who move to the Greater Bay Area with their parents in the future.

However, he pointed out that the current mainland DSE students are not official local students, and they need to use self-study or "NON-JUPAS" to enter local universities. Therefore, he hopes that the Education Bureau can recognize the school as a Hong Kong-accredited school, and then the students will be recognized as local students.

Xueyou Club: Influence Likely CUHK

As for whether the new rules will impact local candidates?

Wu Baocheng, a student counselor of Xueyou Club, believes that the impact is not as big as imagined. In the past, there were also mainland students who came to Hong Kong to take the DSE exam, but it was relatively troublesome. It was necessary to arrange accommodation and transportation across the border. I believe that there will not be a large number of mainland students because the test room is convenient And turn the track to test the DSE.

He expects that the number of DSE students in the Mainland may increase in the future, but the increase will depend on the number of students from Hong Kong.

Only "star rating" may have an impact, and the competition in mathematics and science is relatively fierce

He also pointed out that at present, DSE grades the 1st to 5th grades in a level-referenced way, and only in the "star rating" will it be graded proportionally in the way commonly known as "pulling CURVE", "it will affect the star rating, but the number is less and less. Maybe 10 more people take the 5* test, which will affect one person’s 5** test first.” He also believes that due to the different curriculums in primary and junior high schools in the Mainland, it is expected that the competition in mathematics and science will be relatively fierce, and the liberal arts, especially geography, etc., due to different teaching examples, it is expected that the impact will be affected. Not much.

"JUPAS" different teams

Wu Baocheng added that at present, mainland candidates and local candidates are "two different teams" in "JUPAS", so it is expected that there will not be too much competition for local students to enter universities.
