I have just sent off my application for HKU as they do not need any documents at this stage. I only have the documents left for HKUST and will send that application off tonight or tomorrow.

You mentioned they don't want documents right beforehand. So this means I can send my actual A level results (arrives on january 11; CAIE) later on? I'm taking em in the oct/nov 2020 session (happening right now )

Hey I received it as well, is it programme based or is this some first round interview where this determines whether we are eligible for the second interview which is program based? I’m really not sure
