Please refer to the Registry’s guidelines concerning the Procedures for Checking of Assessment Results of Taught Courses (document 111/511 re-amended) available on the website of the Examinations Office.  Students should submit the completed application form (document SS55/511 re-amended) together with the proof of payment of the application fee (HK$200 for each assessment result to be checked) to the Faculty Office no later than ONE week after the announcement of the course’s final assessment result as determined by the relevant Boards of Examiners. Should there be any irregularity/technical error in the determination of a particular result and the assessment result in question is revised as a consequence, the application fee for checking that particular result will be refunded to the student.
