Admission Policy

The BSC-DSBI programme adopts a Best Five Subject policy with Mathematics (Compulsory Part) inclusive. The admission score is calculated based upon the summation of the weighted score of five subjects obtained from the Best Five policy, under which, the best five subjects (Mathematics (Compulsory Part) inclusive) are selected based upon their corresponding weighted score.

*Remarks: Applicants must fulfill programme’s minimum entrance requirement (i.e. Core 5 excl. M1/M2: 33222).

Subject Weighting

The following table shows the minimum level requirement of HKDSE subjects. There are three levels of subject weight (1, 2, and 3) for the calculation of the weighted score.


The following table illustrates an example of admission calculation under our scoring system. The weighted score of each subject is calculated by the respective DSE scores attained (Y1) times the corresponding subject weight (Y2), i.e., Y1 x Y2. As the table shows, the best five subjects in terms of the five highest weighted scores are English, Mathematics (Compulsory Part), Liberal Studies, Economics and M1. These weighted scores will then be summated to form an admission score to be used for admission consideration.


For the purpose of calculating the admission scores, HKDSE level attainments will be converted to scores where Level 5** = 7, 5* = 6, 5 = 5, 4 = 4, 3 = 3, 2 = 2, 1 = 1 and Unclassified = 0.

Non-academic Consideration

For students with the same admission scores, consideration will be made on a basis of other available information including band choices, interview performance, OEA, SPN, etc.
