UK education options for F.6 (HKDSE) students from Hong Kong

UK education options for F.6 students

Undergraduate Year 1 in Top 30 UK universities normally require 544 to 555 in HKDSE, with subject-specific requirement depending on your choices of programmes. If students fall short of such requirement, they can progress through International Diploma and University Foundation Courses. These programmes accept entry at 433 to 322 in HKDSE and enable qualified students to progress onto Year 2 and Year 1 of an undergraduate programme in Top 30 UK universities respectively. Students aiming for top universities and highly-competitive subjects such as medicine and actuarial sciences, however, will benefit from the 1-Year A-levels which also allows them to apply to universities in Hong Kong through the Non-Jupas route.

The Advanced Level General Certificate of Education (GCE A-levels) is equivalent to the Hong Kong Advanced Level Examination (HKALE) – both of which are completed in F.6 and F.7. The first year of A-levels is the Advanced Subsidary (AS) level and the second year is the A2 level. Students normally start their AS year taking four to five subjects, out of which they choose three to four stronger ones to focus on when they progress to A2. To enter an UK university, a minimum of three passes are required. There is less restriction on subject choices when compared to HKALE, allowing students to do arts subjects alongside with science subjects. Most subjects consist of 4 modules and there are two to four examination intakes in the two years. Retakes of unsatisfactory modules are accepted, meaning that it’s not as stressful as HKALE and there is a high chance of achieving better grades!
