Top performers with massive haul of 5**s in Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education hail from nine elite schools

Twelve of the highest performers in Hong Kong’s main university entrance exams came from nine traditional elite schools, with La Salle College, which provided three of the top scorers, topping the table.

The 12 students, who found out their Diploma of Secondary Education (DSE) examination results on Wednesday morning, along with more than 54,000 other candidates, scored top marks of 5** in seven subjects.

Six of the 12 are super achievers, attaining the best grade available in an extended maths paper. They were from La Salle and St Paul’s Co-educational College, St Paul’s College, Diocesan Girls’ School, Queen’s College and Diocesan Boys’ School.

That was the highest number of candidates to attain the top scores in the exam’s eight-year history.

The six schools, located on Hong Kong Island and in Kowloon, each produced one super achiever.
