JUPAS - School Nominations Direct Admission Scheme (SNDAS)



The School Nominations Direct Admission Scheme (SNDAS), proposed by the Task Force on Review of School Curriculum set up by the Education Bureau (EDB), aims of recognising the exceptional talent of students in specific disciplines that may not be fully assessed by the HKDSE Examination. It will provide opportunities for these students to be considered for direct admission to local universities.
