                                    JS9261 Bachelor of Nursing with Honours in General Health Care
                                    Median Score for 2020 Intake: 20
                                    Lower Quartile for 2020 Intake: 19

                                    1. Score is computed by multiplying the converted points (Level 2 = 2 points, Level 3 = 3 points, Level 4 = 4 points, Level 5/5*/5** = 5/6/7 points) of each of the 4 Core subjects and 1 Elective subject in HKDSE by the respective subject weighting as stipulated by the programme concerned, and then adding the products of each of the 5 subjects together. The admission score is normally calculated based on 4 core subjects and 1 elective subject for all programmes except JS9530, JS9540, JS9550, JS9560, JS9570, JS9580 & JSSU55, of which the admission scores are calculated based on the best 5 subjects.

                                    2. This Score Calculator is not applicable to Non-Chinese-Speaking (NCS) applicant who holds Alternative Qualifications in Chinese Language (ACL).

                                    3. All weighted scores are calculated based on programme-specific formulae, which may assign a heavier weighting to certain subjects that the programmes have particular requirements.

                                    4. The weighted admission scores have taken heavier subject weighting, if any, into account. The scores and subject weighting may vary from year to year and should only be used as reference.
