Secondary and Primary School Nomination 2021/22

Online Screening Programme Result Announcement and Nomination Invitation

The Primary Online Screening Programme result with nomination invitation emails were sent to School Coordinators on Primary: 22 February 2022 / Secondary: 9 March 2022. HKAGE also informed the Students’ Parents about the Online Screening Programme Result via the email addresses provided by School Coordinators during school application. Students who have completed the Online Screening Programmes with a pass have been invited to submit their Student Personal Profiles for further screening through an Online Nomination Platform. School Coordinators please follow up on the nomination for the respective students.

Please note that the Student Personal Profile submitted for Stage 2 selection will be conscientiously examined by the Selection Committee of the HKAGE according to the “Three-Ring Conception of Giftedness”, in order to select appropriate students who would benefit most from the programmes offered by the HKAGE. Therefore the completion of submitting Student Personal Profile does not guarantee admission to the HKAGE.

Please note that due to the latest development of the COVID-19 pandemic, the deadline for submission of Student Personal Profiles for both Primary and Secondary Schools will be extended to 23 May 2022 (12:00 noon). The other procedures have also been postponed accordingly.

The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education (HKAGE) endeavours to secure appropriate learning and development opportunities for gifted students aged 10 to 18 in Hong Kong.

HKAGE admits student members of appropriate ages mainly through the “School Nomination” and “Self Nomination” schemes every school year. Gifted students interested in being members of HKAGE are required to pass “Stage 1: HKAGE Online Learning Programmes for Screening” before they can submit their nomination profiles in “Stage 2: Submit Nomination Profiles” for further screening.

After considering the feedback from schools and teachers, originally each student can only apply for the HKAGE Online Learning Programmes for Screening once either via school or self-nomination during primary school study and twice during secondary school study. This restriction will be lifted from the 2021/22 school year and each school can nominate up to 50 students per year via school nomination.

One nomination will be arranged to be completed within a school year annually
