Junior Secondary Education Assessment allocation results to be released

    The allocation results of the 2006-2007 Junior Secondary Education Assessment (JSEA) will be released tomorrow (August 9).

     "Among the 73,718 Secondary 3 (S3) students requiring allocation this year, 73,478 (99.7 %) have been allocated subsidised Secondary 4 (S4) or Post-Secondary 3 (PS3) craft course places," a spokesman for the Education Bureau said.

     "In the current JSEA cycle, 72,404 students have been allocated subsidised S4 places, with 67,886 of them (93.8 %) continuing their studies in their own schools.  Another 1,074 students have been allocated PS3 craft course places."

     S3 students participating in this year's JSEA System should return to their schools tomorrow to check the allocation results.

     Those who have been allocated to other schools or institutes/training centres of the Vocational Training Council (VTC) or the Construction Industry Training Authority will each be given a Registration Form.  The Registration Form must be surrendered to the allocated school or institute/training centre during registration on Friday (August 10).

     If a student is unable to collect his/her Registration Form tomorrow or turn up for registration on Friday, the parent of the student should authorise, in writing, a representative to collect the Form or register with the allocated school or institute/training centre.  The authorisation letter for registration must be endorsed by the original school.

     For registration with the allocated secondary school, a student should bring with him/her the following:

* the Registration Form;

* his/her Hong Kong Identity Card;

* two recent passport-sized photographs; and

* sufficient amount of money for one month's school fee which may be required by the school.

     For registration with the allocated institute/training centre for a PS3 craft course, a student should bring his/her Registration Form and Hong Kong Identity Card.

     Those who fail to register on Friday will be considered as having given up the S4 or PS3 craft course places allocated.

     Similar to the situation for the last cycle, some 240 S3 students were not allocated a place because they had indicated that they would not accept places other than those of their choices in the central allocation.  An information sheet on education and training opportunities and a list of PS3 craft courses still with vacancies will be given to these students for reference.  The spokesman said there were adequate PS3 craft course places and a small number of subsidised S4 places available for these students.  Those wishing to apply for these places may contact the Education Bureau for information.  Those interested in applying for the craft courses may approach the VTC Admission Office (Tel: 2897 7688 or 2505 8165) or the Training Centres of the Construction Industry Training Authority (Tel: 2552 1441 or 2903 0642) direct.

     Under the existing policy, all S3 students in publicly-funded (government, aided and caput) schools who have the ability and wish to continue their study will be provided with subsidised S4 or PS3 craft course places.  The JSEA is a mechanism for allocating places to these students, making reference to their academic performance in schools and parental choices.  The mechanism in its present form will be phased out upon implementation of the new academic structure and curriculum for senior secondary education from 2009-10 school year onwards, when all students should, in principle, be able to complete six years of secondary education in the same school to ensure continuity of learning.  

     The School Places Allocation (SPA) Section of the Education Bureau will set up an enquiry counter at Lui Kee Education Services Centre (Address: 269 Queen's Road East, Wan Chai, Hong Kong) during office hours from Thursday (August 9) to next Tuesday (August 14) to render assistance and enquiry service to the students.  Enquiries can also be made by phone at 2832 7770 to the SPA Section.
