Vast Achievements at 2020 Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination
This year, HKDSE students faced unprecedented challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With their unrelenting effort and unyielding support of teachers and parents, they achieved gratifying results. A total of 94 KTL students sat the 2020 HKDSE. In 7 subjects, they achieved better than the Hong Kong average at Level 5 or above. In 11 subjects, they achieved better than the Hong Kong average at Level 4 or above. The most commendable results went to Chinese Language, English Language and Liberal Studies, with more than half of the cohort attaining Level 4 or above.
Overall, the percentage of students attaining the minimum requirement for university admission (33222) was 86% while the Hong Kong average was 37.3%. Around 87% of our S6 graduates received a JUPAS offer in an array of disciplines in prestigious local universities. The offers include but are not limited to the following: Bachelor of Business Administration (Law) and Bachelor of Laws (double degree), Bachelor of Art in HKU; Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance, Bachelor of Science in Global China Studies, Bachelor of Science in HKUST; and Bachelor of Business Administration in Professional Accountancy, Bachelor of Nursing, Bachelor of Social Science in Psychology, Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy in CUHK.

This cohort of S6 graduates have also been accepted by the world’s top 100 universities ranked in the QS World University Rankings, such as Peking University (Psychology), University of Toronto (Business Administration), Durham University (Psychology) and University of Leeds (Biological Sciences), to name a few.
