Please click here for more details. [Chinese Version]

Title
Overview
Description

HKUST participates in Hong Kong’s Joint University Programmes Admissions System (JUPAS). Through JUPAS, HKUST admits local students taking the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) examination. Eligible local HKDSE students interested in studying at HKUST should submit their applications to JUPAS in accordance with the relevant timeline.

Non-local HKDSE students should submit their applications through our Online Application System as students with International Qualifications

2022 Entry Requirements 

JUPAS applicants applying to HKUST are expected to satisfy the University’s minimum admission requirement of a score of 3322+33 (Level 3 in English Language and Chinese Language; Level 2 in Mathematics Compulsory and Liberal Studies; Level 3 in Elective 1; and Level 3 in Elective 2 or M1/M2) and specific requirements, if any, for subjects and attainment levels in particular subjects set out by individual Schools or programs. 

Non-Chinese speaking (NCS) students may use an alternative Chinese subject, an HKDSE Other Language subject, or an HKDSE Applied Learning Chinese subject to satisfy the University’s Chinese language requirement. Further admission details for NCS students are available at the JUPAS website.

Each School/program uses a specific formula to calculate admission scores, based on the HKDSE scores of eligible JUPAS applicants. For 2022 Entry, the following conversion scale of subject levels/grades will be applied based on the HKDSE scores of eligible JUPAS applicants for calculation of admission scores.

Category A Core/Elective Subjects :
5** = 8.5 ; 5* = 7 ; 5 = 5.5 ; 4 = 4 ; 3 = 3 ; 2 = 2

Category C Other Language Subjects :
A = 7 ; B = 5.5 ; C = 4 ; D = 2.5 ; E = 1

If more than one admission score is available for an applicant based on this calculation, the best result will be considered. Interested students are encouraged to use the following JUPAS score calculator when considering HKUST. (Elective subject in the admission score formulae refers to Category A subjects, including Mathematics Extended Part Module 1 and Module 2.)

Points to note:
  1. HKUST calculates weighted scores based on program-specific formulae, of which certain subjects are given heavier weighting.
  2. The scores presented here for 8.5-point scale are based on the following conversion scale of subject levels/grades to scores for 2022 Entry:
    Category A Core/Elective Subjects 5** = 8.5 ; 5* = 7 ; 5 = 5.5 ; 4 = 4 ; 3 = 3 ; 2 = 2
    Category C Other Language Subjects A = 7 ; B = 5.5 ; C = 4 ; D = 2.5 ; E = 1
  3. 2022 JUPAS admissions scores are applicable to local students only. Non-local students holding HKDSE qualifications should apply through https://join.hkust.edu.hk/apply.
  4. All admissions scores are provided for reference only. The public examination results of students admitted to each program vary from year to year. HKUST considers an applicant’s whole profile, on top of the HKDSE score.
  5. Past admissions scores may not be available because of the new program or small intake to the program in the year concerned. Such case will be indicated with “-“ where admissions scores are not suitable for references in the year concerned.
