Entrance Requirements for Direct / Non-JUPAS Applicants

In addition to the University General Entrance Requirements, applicants must satisfy the following BVM-specific entrance requirements in order to be considered for admission. Selected applicants will be invited for an interview.

We require high levels of achievement in English, Mathematics, Chemistry and Biology in IB, GCE or equivalent. Other international qualifications will be considered on a matching scale of IB, GCE or equivalent mode of entry on a case-by-case basis.
 

GCE
  • Grade C in Mathematics, Chemistry and Biology at GCE A-level (or A2) or International A-level; AND
  • Grade B (Grade 6 in new GCSE) in GCSE/GCEOL English Language or English Literature; OR
  • Grade B (Grade 6 in new IGCSE) in IGCSE English First Language, English Language or English Literature; OR
  • Grade A (Grade 7 in new IGCSE) in IGCSE English as a Second Language.
IB

The English subject may be a Group 1, ‘Language A: literature’ or ‘Language A: language and literature’ subject; or a Group 2 ‘Language B’ subject but not ‘Language ab initio’.

  • Grade 5 in English HL OR Grade 6 in English SL; AND
  • Grade 4 Mathematics HL OR Grade 5 in Mathematics SL; AND
  • Grade 4 in Chemistry HL and Biology.

 

An alternative to GCE/GCSE English or IB English is a TOEFL score of 600 (paper-based test) or 100 (Internet-based test), or an IELTS overall band score of 7 and 7 in each category.

Graduates or current students completing a degree programme at a university in Hong Kong or overseas will be considered on a case-by-case basis. However, applicants have to demonstrate competencies in English, Mathematics, Chemistry and Biology to levels equivalent to those specified above for the other modes of entry.

Aside from the academic scores, interview performance is also a very critical component in the selection process.


Competitive Scores
