In the past few years, the senior secondary curriculum offered by local schools in Hong Kong has received a major overhaul. The new senior secondary education model, leading to the Hong Kong Diploma in Secondary Education (HKDSE) has now replaced the old HKCEE (Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination) and the HLALE (Hong Kong Advanced Level Examination) qualifications.

Help for DSE students can be obtained from ITS in a number of ways –
ITS can provide tuition for individual subjects students are taking as part of their core or their electives. One-to-one and small group tuition is available in a large range of subjects as well as help in exam –taking techniques and exam tips.
Sometimes parents have concerns regarding the DSE, including whether the structure of the DSE will suit their child and whether the DSE is providing the right pre-requisites for alternative pathways of study. One way to compensate for the lack of an exam score at Year 11 (or upper fifth level) is for students to take a number of IGCSE subjects with ITS. Students can join one-to-one tuition or small group preparation classes then enroll and take the exams at ITS. I/GCSE
In order for students to ensure that they have the best possible choices available to them at university, adding one or more GCE (A level) subjects can help. As the A level is a modular system, students can take the subjects as quickly or as slowly as suits their schedule, while giving themselves an additional qualification and increasing their chances of entering the university of their choice.
