Remarks:

 

(i)              The admission score is calculated by adding the scores of 4 core subjects and 2 electives with the best results without weighting (If the student has attempted the subject more than once, the best result of the subject will be used for score calculation). “Other languages” at grade E or above and Mathematics extended modules (M1/M2) are counted as elective subjects. If students take both M1 and M2, they will be counted as one subject.
