Release of results of the 2018 HKDSE

Our graduate class hit a home run in the 2018 Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) Examination.
Three quarters of our students secured JUPAS entry requirements for degree programme. The passing rate of all the
academic subjects taken is almost 100%. Comparing with last year, the percentage of attaining Level 5**,
Level 5* and Level 5 increased one fold.

Among those highly flyers, four candidates who have secured offers of degree programme in medicine and global
| business from local universities to realize their dreams of making positive influences to the society shared their
secrets of success. LIU Xiaobo, Glodia MUN and WONG Wing Lam, who are our first batch of through-train
(Grade 1 to Grade 12) students, as well as LO Chun Hei who joined the school at Grade 7, emphasised a good
foundation at younger stage was the key to the right path. With clear objectives, all of them worked diligently
since junior high school for each subject and kept in practice on the past papers to spot weak areas for
improvement. Despite busy schedule of study, these four students agreed that good rest, enough sleep as well
as doing physical exercise was also important to keeping them clear-minded, animated and focused in class.
They are of the view that A-School’s whole-person education broadened their horizon and helped them equip
with necessary skills for further quest of knowledge in university.

Through vigorously expanding network with tertiary institutions, a DSE student has already successfully enrolled
in a degree programme at the Waseda University, Japan under the High School Principal Recommendation Admission
Scheme, a partnership scheme that we, as the first local school, established with the Waseda University in this school
year. A couple of students with artistic talents have also received offers from world famous universities, including
Goldsmiths, University of London which is ranked by QS World Rankings in the top five UK Universities for Art &
Design and Communication & Media Studies, and Royal College of Music which is one of the world’s long-established,
largest and most respected music education institutions.

Our GCEAL upper class students, though waiting for the release of AL exam results in August, all of them have
already received conditional/unconditional offers from world-known universities including University of Oxford,
Imperial College London, University College London, University of Edinburgh, UC San Diego, University of
Toronto, HKU, HKUST, and CUHK to pursue undergraduate study in Mathematics, Veterinary Medicine & Surgery,
Mathematics with Economics, LLB, etc. Up till this moment, each student received at least 3 offers.

Once again, our G12 students have proved the school is on the right direction to nurture the students with the
unswerving guidance from teachers and support from parents. The remarkable achievements of the students are
the collaborative efforts made by the members of A-School family. Carrying the mission of grooming high-calibre
talents for the 21st century, we will continue to put the greatest passion to educate our students. As always, the teachers,
staff and management team of A-School are committed to working the hardest to help our students achieve excellence!

Congratulations to all graduates on their success and wishing them all the best in their further study.
