Three useful tools produced to help students prepare for HKDSE results release day
     To assist Secondary Six graduates to prepare for the release of the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) Examination results on July 12, the Education Bureau (EDB) has produced the "Three useful tools for 712", namely e-Navigator, 712 Further Studies and Career Map, and 2017 Compass@712. These tools, uploaded to the EDB website today (May 23), allow graduates, parents and schools to obtain useful information in a timely manner.

     Graduates, parents and schools can use the e-Navigator to search for programme information across different local institutions and levels, including degrees, sub-degrees and the Diploma Yi Jin. The 712 Further Studies and Career Map provides a checklist of multiple pathways and key dates for course registration to remind graduates to take necessary actions accordingly. The 2017 Compass@712 provides users with essential information to make better preparation for the release of the HKDSE Examination results. It includes information on further studies, multiple pathways and various supporting services.

     A spokesman for the EDB said, "The broad and balanced Senior Secondary curriculum provides diversified choices to cater for students' different interests, abilities and needs. It promotes whole-person development and stretches students' potential fully. We hope students will make good use of the 'Three useful tools for 712' and the flexible and diversified study and career pathways with multiple entry and exit points under the New Academic Structure, to choose their right directions according to their interests, needs and aptitudes, so as to develop and realise their potential."

     The EDB will continue to maintain close communication and collaboration with schools and other stakeholders to help students plan for their future and fulfil their aspirations, the spokesman said.

     The "Three useful tools for 712" are available on the 2017 DSE Results Release Designated Webpage (www.edb.gov.hk/s6/en), which also provides other up-to-date information about multiple pathways.
