More mainland schools exempt HK students from entrance exam


The number of mainland higher education institutions participating in the Scheme for Admission of Hong Kong Students to Mainland Higher Education Institutions will increase to 90, the Ministry of Education announced on Thursday.

In addition, the quota on the number of students nominated by each school under the School Principal Nomination Scheme (SPNS) will increase to six.

The Education Bureau in Hong Kong welcomed the announcment.

"The Admission Scheme will admit Hong Kong students based on their results in the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) Examination and exempt them from taking the Joint Entrance Examination for Mainland Institutions, hence relieving their pressure and enabling them to concentrate on their preparation for the HKDSE Examination," said a Education Bureau spokesman.

Candidates sitting for the HKDSE Examination in 2017 are welcome to enrol in the scheme.

The six new institutions participating in the scheme are Central University of Finance and Economics, Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, Southeast University, Zhejiang Normal University, Wuhan University of Technology and Xi'an Jiaotong University.

The 90 participating institutions come from 15 provinces and municipalities as well as one autonomous region on the mainland.
