Hello guys. I am applying to CU Journalism and Communication. My predicted grades are quite low compared to other applicants which are Economics- A Maths -A and Biology - B but I got straight As and A*s in my GCSE (5A*s and 6As). Is it very unlikely that they will give me an offer? Thank you very much

Well your scores are not that low in my opinion. Even if they are, you can get some leverage if you write a killer personal statement which displays your keen interest in your studies. Also, tell your teachers to write good recommendation letters for you😁

Btw, which univ are u applyong to???

I am applying to the Chinese University of Hong Kong. I am really really scared because my friend told me HK universities only look at your grades but not the personal statement

If you're applying to CUHK Medicine the word limit is 250, otherwise you've got 1 page. If you've already created your application, you can check the supporting documents/personal statement page for the specific word limit for other courses.

Hey everyone! I'm applying to HKUST and HKU since their universities are so affordable for an international student, also because I love the country itself and the courses they offer so there's that. I'm applying to the Bachelors of Science, specifically the Biochemistry major. Still haven't heard from any of them yet but my predicted scores are:

776 HL in Chem, Bio and English Lit in order, and 777 in SL French B, Maths and Geo and 44/45 in total.

I'm so nervous about getting the replies, especially thinking about how competitive the universities in Hong Kong are, since i'm only applying to the UK and the Lester B Pearson Scholarship in Toronto other than HK. I'd like to get an affordable Bachelors degree basically. I already got offers from the UK but the conditions and the prices are kinda hefty and scary so i'm hoping for a more comfortable offer in HK so I can at least mentally relax Best of lucks to everyone! Update us if you get any offers!
