  • The Hong Kong Advanced Level Examination, or more commonly known as the A-level, conducted by the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority, is normally taken by senior students at the end of their matriculation in Hong Kong between 1979 to 2012. It was originally being the entrance examination in University of Hong Kong until the introduction of Joint University Programmes Admissions System in 1992, which made it being the major university entrance examination until academic year 2011/2012. The examination is conducted from March to May, and the results are routinely released in the first week of July. There are altogether 17 A-level and 17 AS-level subjects in the HKALE. AS-level is commonly known as Hong Kong Advanced Supplementary Level Examination. AS-level subjects are taught within half the number of periods compared to that required for A-level subjects, but they demand the same level of intellectual vigour. Most day school candidates take four or five subjects in the HKALE.
