Non - JUPAS International Baccalaureate 44 or above with good interview performance and past record of achievements
GCE A-Level A* in all subjects with an average marks of 97% or
above with good interview performance and past record of achievements
Others Selection will be based on academic merits, interview performance and past record of achievements


1. For JUPAS applicants, the 4 Core subjects and the best 3 Elective subjects will be calculated as the HKDSE total score (where level 5** = 7 points, 5* = 6 points, 5 = 5 points etc.). Mathematics (extended part) will be taken into calculation if the attained level of Mathematics (extended part) is higher than that of one of the seven subjects.
2. For the number of subjects with 5**, Mathematics the compulsory part and the optional extended part are treated as one subject. Hence, 5** in both compulsory and extended Mathematics do NOT count as two subjects with 5**
3. Students who meet the following extended criteria are eligible for exemptions from some of the Faculty courses that are normally taken in the first year of study in accordance with University regulations, after they are admitted to the GPS:
  • For HKDSE students: at least 5* in Biology AND Chemistry AND English
  • For IB students: at least Grade 6 in Biology (HL) and Chemistry (HL), of which either must be Grade 7
  • For GCE students: Grade A* in all subjects, including Biology and Chemistry  
The above admission requirements are subject to change without prior notice.



JUPAS applicants are made through the JUPAS office and applicants’ school. There is a separate code for MBChB–GPS.

Non-JUPAS applications are made via the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid (OAFA). Non-JUPAS students should apply initially for MBChB.

Before the release of examination results, some applicants may be selected for early interview based on predicted marks or nominations from schools. However, admission to the GPS cannot be confirmed until students obtain the minimum requirements above. All remaining students eligible for the GPS will be interviewed after the release of examination results.
