  2. Grade C/ Grade 4 or above in GCSE/IGCSE/GCE O-Level Chinese/ Chinese Language; or

HKDSE Category C subjects “Other Languages" normally cannot be used for meeting the entrance requirement on Chinese Language. While waivers may be granted at the discretion of individual programmes, such consideration is only made under special circumstances, on a case-by-case basis. Students are therefore strongly advised to obtain the requisite Chinese language qualifications.

 

Note 2:

The specified circumstances are:

  1. The student has learned Chinese Language for less than six years while receiving primary and secondary education. This caters specifically to students who have a late start in the learning of Chinese Language (e.g. due to their settlement in Hong Kong well past the entry level) or who have been educated in Hong Kong sporadically;

OR

b.The student has learned Chinese Language for six years or more in schools, but has been taught an adapted and simpler Chinese Language curriculum not normally applicable to the majority of students in Hong Kong schools.
