First Semester Examination 2019-2020

With the end of semester examinations approaching, I wish to draw your attention to the following issues:

(A) Illness during the examination period

  1. A candidate who is unable because of illness to be present for any paper in the examination or who believes that the state of his/her health either immediately before or during the examination has significantly affected his/her performance should

  1. write to the Examinations Secretary immediately setting out the case; and

  1. arrange to submit a Form of Medical Certificate. The candidate should complete Part I and then give or send the form to the attending doctor with a request that it be completed within 2 days of the date of the examination concerned and sent by the attending doctor direct to the Director, University Health Service. The completed Form must reach the Director of the University Health Service not later than 14 days after the date of examination. The Form of Medical Certificate could be downloaded from http://www.hku.hk/exam/The leave granted by the attending doctor must cover the examination session that the candidate was absent from, otherwise supplementary examination will not be arranged.

  1. The Board of Examiners (the Board) only considers the University’s Form of Medical Certificate with Parts I, II & III duly completed. Students must ensure that the Form, with Parts I & II completed, be sent to the Director of the University Health Service not later than 14 days after the date of the examination of the course concerned. Late submissions will not be considered.

  1. Only those students who are permitted by the Board to take a supplementary examination will be individually informed of such an outcome. The Department will arrange the supplementary examination as early as practicable, in consultation with the student concerned. For students who are absent from the supplementary examination, no further supplementary examination will be arranged. Other students who are absent from examinations and are not permitted to take the supplementary examinations will result in an automatic failure in the examination component.

(B) Appeal of Examination Results

All examination papers are carefully marked by examiners and the results are duly approved by the Board of Examiners. The University’s position is that student appeals against examination results which are academic judgments are disallowed. However if students who wish to apply for checking of procedural irregularity or technical error of the assessment result should fill in an application form and send it to the Faculty Office within 14 days after the examination results are announced. Applications received after that date will not be considered. The application fee is HK$200 for each assessment result to be checked. Students have to submit one application form for each of the assessment result to be checked together with the receipt of fee payment to the Faculty Office. For details, please refer to the website:

https://www.scifac.hku.hk/current/ug/academic/assessment (Examination > Appeal on Examination Results)

(C) Unsatisfactory Performance

Please be reminded that students who do not perform satisfactorily may be required to discontinue from their studies in accordance with regulation AAI10, Sc5(g) or AS5(g) and General Regulation G11.

BASc(AppliedAI) Students

Dear BASc(AppliedAI), BSc and BSc(ActuarSc) students
 

Student Option Form on the First Semester Course Assessment Arrangements for BASc(AppliedAI), BSc and BSc(ActuarSc) Students
 

Further to the email from Professor Ian Holliday dated November19, 2019 (https://tl.hku.hk/2019/11/online-teaching-and-learning-for-final-weeks-of-semester-1-2019-20/), please be informed that you can indicate your intended arrangements for the first semester courses (i.e. Pass/Fail grading, Letter grading and Late drop) in SIS via the following navigation path starting from 10:00am, December 2, 2019 (Monday):
 

HKU Portal > SIS Menu > Useful Links > Choice on Assessment
 

You may wish to note that:

1.     Core or compulsory courses have to be completed by all students taking a programme, so the Late Drop option should be exercised with extreme caution.

2.     Courses that are prerequisite for subsequent courses within a programme affect academic progression, so again the Late Drop option should be exercised with extreme caution.

3.     The Common Core Special Proviso for GPA calculation operates only when there are six graded courses (https://commoncore.hku.hk/special-proviso/).

4.     In order to be eligible for inclusion on the Dean’s Honour List, students should take and pass at least 48 credits of courses in both semester 1 and 2.

5.     If you opt for pass/fail grading to be applied to all first semester courses, there will be no Semester GPA in semester 1. It might affect your application for exchange study/internship/scholarship etc., depending on the relevant terms and conditions of application and selection criteria.

6.     The option in converting to letter grade does not apply to courses that are originally assessed on pass/fail grade basis such as internship courses.

Please also be reminded that you have to indicate your choices via SIS by 5:00pm, December 6, 2019 (Friday). Late indication of choices will not be entertained.  If you do not make change to any choices by the abovementioned deadline, we shall assume that the original grading system would be applied to all courses you have enrolled in the first semester.
 

Thank you.
