More HZMB private car quotas set

The governments of Hong Kong and Macau have agreed to increase the regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to Macau, the Transport Department announced today.   The decision was made to enhance traffic flow between Hong Kong and Macau, better utilising the bridge, the department said.   It will increase the Hong Kong quota by 1,000, following the earlier quota allocation of 1,800 for Hong Kong.   The additional quota will be distributed in two phases from the second quarter.   Half of the additional 1,000 quota allocations is for company applicants and the other half is for individual applicants. The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

Schools to launch admission portal

The Education Bureau today announced that the School Nominations Direct Admission Scheme will be launched in the 2022-23 academic year to provide an additional pathway to university for students with exceptional talents.   The bureau noted that the scheme aims at recognising the outstanding talent of students in specific disciplines that may not be fully assessed by the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (HKDSE).   The scheme will be open for application by Secondary 6 students who will be taking the 2022 HKDSE Examination and commencing their undergraduate studies in September 2022.   Its nomination period will run from October 6 to December 8. Each local secondary school can nominate two students with exceptional talents and interests in specific disciplines or areas.   Each nominee can apply for admission to one of the around 140 designated University Grants Committee (UGC)-funded undergraduate programme participating in the scheme.   The eight UGC-funded universities have set admission criteria that are not based on HKDSE Examination results for individual programmes.   Participating universities will arrange interviews for all students nominated and make firm offers to successful students prior to the release of the 2022 HKDSE Examination results.   Click here for the details.
