Characteristics of Scheme-based Admission
Students first follow a common curriculum under the Scheme.
This Scheme-based admission serves as an undeclared track. It offers students approximately a year to identify their area(s) of interest and career aspirations, which facilitates their Major programme selection.
The decision to admit a student to a major will be made by the School based on the student's own choice, portfolio evaluation, interview performance, GPA and individual subject result. Students will be asked to rank their major choices (from the most preferred one to the least) during semester 2 (probably before the final examination) of their Year One study for the School's consideration and approval.
