Subject Weighting for 2017-18

The following table shows that minimum level of various DSE subjects and the corresponding weights that are assigned to the subjects for the calculation of their weighted scores. M1/M2 is considered as an elective subject in the 2017-18 admission score calculation. The following table also reveals that the subject weights are categorized into three levels of subject weight 10, 7 and 5.

subj-weight

*M1/M2 is counted as an individual elective subject.

 

The following table demonstrates an example of admission calculation under our scoring scheme for an applicant who obtained the following HKDSE results. The weighted score of individual subjects is calculated by the formula of converted DSE level (Y1) times the corresponding subject weight (Y2), i.e., Y1 x Y2. As the table shows, the Best Five subjects in terms of the five highest weighted scores are English, Mathematics, Liberal Studies, BAFS, and Geography. Their weighted scores are then summated to form the Admission Score that is used for admission consideration.
