HKDSE exam results tools uploaded

The Education Bureau today uploaded three useful tools on its website to help Secondary 6 students prepare for the release of the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) Examination results on July 21.   The first tool, e-Navigator, helps students, parents and schools search for programme information across different levels, including degrees, sub-degrees and the Diploma Yi Jin.   The Further Studies & Career Map provides a checklist of multiple pathways and key dates for course registration.   Additionally, the Compass@HKDSE offers valuable information on further studies, multiple pathways and various supporting services.   The bureau said the HKDSE Examination was smoothly completed under the COVID-19 pandemic thanks to schools’ and students’ co-operation.   It will continue to communicate and collaborate with schools and other stakeholders to help students plan for their future.
