They claim that pollution is really bad. But it's honestly nothing compared to other cities in China like Shanghai or Beijing.
It's not noticeable. It's not serious enough to affect anything. Don't worry about the pollution part.
haha yes.. definitely not as bad as Shanghai

received offer from HKUST for business and management, it's conditional offer for 36 points in IB (including tok and ee) and at least 4 for each subject. I'm a non-jupas local applicant

But I still haven't heard back from other HK schools yet :/
I'm a non-jupas local applicant too
HKUST is very famous for Business, congratulations!

I received an offer for Social Science from hku too!
I still haven't heard from cuhk (applied for Psychology).

All the 3 uni are very good, you won't be disadvantaged by going to any of them. But I personally prefer hku. HKU's degree is very flexible, since you could freely choose to study more than one subject in social science or other faculties (double major), and it also got the prestige too. For Psychology, hku is the best out of all hong kong uni.

I received a conditional offer too, but I'm doing gce A-levels. (Local non-jupas applicant)
I think it's very unlikely that they would be able to accept applicants who miss their offer...I know there might be exception, but it's very rare. A place in hku is very very competitive and I know a lot of students with excellent grades are rejected by hku. Social science is not as oversubscribed as subjects like medicine or law (my friend got A*A*AAA but she was still rejected by hku :eek:), but it's still popular.
I advise you to accept as many offers as you could (although the deposit fee is super expensive), and good luck to both of us on the coming exam!

I suppose you can always try. But HKU has no problems accepting local non-JUPAS applicants until the very last minute (ie last week of August).

Also, Hong Kong universities have the obligation to accept all JUPAS applicants who appealed and got their grades upgraded to at least the student with the lowest score in a programme, so if anything they may have more students than they expected.
