UK education options for F.3 students or below

Normally, Hong Kong students can progress to the next year group when starting their studies in the UK. They seldom have to repeat their previous level again. For applications of lower year groups, schools tend to focus more on students’ performance on music, sports and other extracurricular activities; Whereas for applications of higher year groups, more focus will be put on students’ academic achievements. Experience tells that students often have more choices on schools as well as a higher chance of getting into more well-known boarding schools if they started studying in the UK at a younger age.

NATIONAL CURRICULUM

The General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) curriculum is taught in F.4 and F.5. It allows students the flexibility to do arts subjects alongside with science subjects. Students who take the standard 2-year GCSE programmes normally study seven to ten subjects. Passing grades are A* to C (or grade 9-4 in the new grading scale) and students are expected to gain a minimum of 5 passes at grade C or 4 to qualify for GCE A-levels examinations.
