    DSE has set a dead line of 6.11 The exam will be cancelled if it doesn't start next Friday You have to leave if your temperature reaches 38°C

     

    [Ming Pao Newspaper] As the outbreak of Hsin Kuan Pneumonia continues, the Education Bureau (EDB) has announced that the Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (DSE) will start next Friday (24th) as scheduled, and the examination results will be released on 22nd July. The Secretary General of the Examinations and Assessment Authority (EAA), Mr So Kwok-sang, said the guidelines on temperature measurement will be strictly enforced. Candidates will not be allowed to enter the examination centre if their body temperature reaches 38 degrees Celsius or above after three heat checks, and they will not be allowed to pass the examination even if their body temperature reaches 38.01 degrees Celsius. Schools are on "high alert" for the opening of the examination and have made arrangements to prevent epidemics, but some headmasters are worried that candidates with fever may refuse to leave the examination centre and will arrange for senior teachers to advise them.
