Hong Kong’s testing authority will allow students to submit scores from the Test of Proficiency in Korean in the foreign language category of the city’s university entrance exam starting from 2025.
Hong Kong will include Korean in the foreign language category of the city’s university entrance exam starting from 2025, but will drop both Hindi and Urdu.
The Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Hong Kong confirmed on Wednesday that the city’s Examinations and Assessment Authority and South Korea’s National Institute for International Education had reached an agreement to include Korean as part of the Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (DSE).
“The documents on the agreement are ready, but a physical ceremony for the memorandum of understanding was postponed due to Hong Kong’s Covid
-19 restrictions,” deputy consul general Park Kyong-sig said.
