May I ask what other standard results you provided?
I submitted my TOEFL, I scored 112, and my IELTS, which I got a 8.

I also provided my AP World History, on which I got a 5 along with my school transcripts and IB Predicted score.

What did you put or second choice?
I actually didn't take Economics or Business for my ALevels... I don't think they will take me


Posted from TSR Mobile
My first choice is Global Business and second choice is Business and Management since but none of them fascinates me much, so in case I get in I ll try transfer to Economics I wanted to apply for Finance/Economics (I applied to HKU and UK universities for these courses) but in late admission there were only these 2 left on HKUST.

I don't think they care whether you have Economics or Business because our IB teachers told us that the 2 years of Economics we are doing now, will be done during the first 3 months at Uni. Therefore, I think it really depends on your personal statement and references more than on your subjects))
However, my only issue is that I am extra lazy, so in my extra curricular activities I only had football and some random part time jobs, which however, had to do with Finance. So I hope I ll get in yet, I am really nervous about interviews, in case I will have one

My teachers said don't ever go to HKU or business because it's not as good as CU and HKUST... LOL

CU is well-known of its (Enrichment) Maths, Physics, Biochemistry, Business, Pharmacy
HKU is well-known for medicine, law, architecture
Besides, those who did GCE or IB can classify as advanced students for CU that only have to do three years instead of four.
Would you mind telling me your predicted grades?

Hey guys, i have applied engineering main round for all HKU, CU and UST but i barely get any news from them. For HKU they send me a form to fill up my area of interest and i chose civil engineering. CU also send me a form to fill out but i decided to not reply because it said on the form that if i don't reply they will consider me as applying to bd. For UST i have received nothing at all.

Apart from that my second choice of UST is business and management, i have done the 4 minutes online interview and after that they send me an e-mail to tell me to upload my predicted grade which needs to be stamp the school office. I uploaded it on 12/3 but i haven't heard anything back yet.

So i just wanted to know that have the engineering departments of HKU, CU and UST start to give interview or conditional offer out for the main round people? What would the typical conditional offer of A-Level be for these three universities? Have i miss the chance of UST business and management? I saw some IB people got their offer a few pages before, if i still have a chance what would the conditional offer likely to be?

P.s my predicted grade for my A-level is AAA.

Sorry if this is getting too long but i am so worry that i will not be able to go back to Hong Kong to study this year, i wish that i could swap all of my offers from the UK for just one offer from HK. Sigh...

My friend applied for engineering in HKU, CU and UST through fast track, she has heard from HKU and UST. HKU asks for AAA while UST asked for A*AA. Her predicted grade is A*AA.
Hope it helps!

By the way I read on the papers that HKU has more than 17% international students in their undergraduate population (No 1 in Hong Kong, similar to Oxford in the UK), whilst CUHK ranks second with around 11% (slightly higher than Cambridge to compare).
