    2 GPA (Grade Point Average) is unweighted cumulative average calculated for all subjects taken, including failed subjects. It is capped at 4.0.

    3 33222 refers to the attainment of Level 3 in Chinese Language and English Language and Level 2 in Mathematics, Liberal Studies and one elective subject in HKDSE.

    • Students who do not meet the above criteria (including those from unrelated disciplines) may also be considered and invited for interview subject to the availability of places. Those with recommendation from HKCC's Programme Leaders will be considered favourably.
    • The offering of any programmes stated above is subject to annual review. There may be revamp, re-development and phasing out of programmes from time to time. At the same time, SPEED may develop new programmes, as appropriate, in response to community needs. Depending on the programme nature, new programmes may have different specific requirements. For the latest programme information, please visit SPEED's website.
    • SPEED collaborates with Northumbria University and the University of London International Programmes in offering top-up honours degree programmes and preparatory law courses respectively, leading to overseas awards. HKCC graduates may also apply for admission to these programmes (the Conditional Offer Scheme does not apply to these two types of programmes).
