Interview offers for fast track are usually given during December and January. First main round offers for high school students in April, Second main round in July, Third main round in August. Undergrads or degree holders are in May.

Here's previous 2014 entry thread for reference:

Hi. I am an applicant of 2014 and thinking about re-applying (only applied CUHK last year and probably apply to HKU also this year). I am thinking over going fast-track or not? Any suggestions?

(P.S. I am thinking if I should furnish my statement and have more time to prepare for interview VS submit quickly and rush for interview ---as I don't know if they give out a lot of space for degree applicant in fast track or not)

P.S.2 Is there any fast-track for CUHK medicine? I understand that there is a fast track program in CUHK. But it seems no one in last year thread mention about interviewing in Dec last year in CUHK. So it appears to me that all applications are put in April for first round.

Just called the admission office of CUHK and HKU medicine.

CUHK says they are not offering advance offer this year, so expect to receive invitation for interview in March to April.

For fast-track applicants for HKU MBBS, the date of interview is scheduled on 16/12/2014 and they will send out invitation around a week before. If you hear nothing after 9-11/12, probably your application will be pooled into the main round.

Good luck!

Yes, final year biomedical engineering in UK, fast track too. But there seems to be a delay/error in mailing my reference, so might be thrown into main round. I might be contacting the wrong places, but how did you guys confirm the receipt of the reference?

Coolguy, I don't think it's not a huge problem as long as you uploaded the softcopy to the system on time.

The lady from the non-jupas admission office even told me that it's not compulsory to mail them the hard copy at this stage. They will request for the original letters if you obtain an offer from them.

That is difficult to explain, especially on a forum such as this! It's pretty standard, covers most of the premed requirements and lots of research.
