Candidates should keep their original receipts or a record of online registration as evidence of payment. If payment of examination fees is not made by the specific deadline, entries are accepted at the discretion of the HKEAA and a supplementary fee in addition to the examination fees will be levied.
Examination fees paid by a candidate who subsequently withdraws his / her entry, or is absent from the examination, or the examination is cancelled at a later stage will NOT be refunded. Fees are NOT transferable to other exam centres (i.e. from HKEAA to other authorized exam centres), or from one examination to another (i.e. from GCE to IGCSE) / a later series (i.e. from May/June to Oct/Nov series) or for other purposes. In addition, the HKEAA will not offer the service of “Transferred Candidate” under any circumstance.
Any supplementary fees paid during the registration will not be counted as a part of examination fees. The supplementary fee paid will not be refunded under any circumstances.
Candidates must check the requirements and conditions of entry for various subjects and keep themselves abreast of the latest changes on the Cambridge Assessment International Education website (www.cambridgeinternational.org/). No refunds or adjustments to the candidate's examination schedule will be made as a result of entries which do not comply with the information on the Cambridge Assessment International Education website. The following is a convenient highlight for reference only.
The subjects A-Level must not be taken with AS-Level in the same examination series under the same syllabus code (e.g. English Language (A-Level) must not be taken with English Language (AS-Level) in the same examination series).
A timetable showing the subjects available in the HKEAA is attached. It is the candidates’ responsibility to check carefully the relevant examination timetables (including GCE / IGCSE) before submitting entries so as to avoid timetable clashes among subjects entered and prohibited combination of subjects with GCE examinations, or across different examinations under Cambridge International (i.e. GCE & IGCSE), or across different examinations of other examination boards. Candidates should avoid entering the subjects which are scheduled in the same exam session (i.e. AM or PM session). Normally, for those subjects with timetable clash, no special arrangements will be made and candidates are required to cancel either one subject. Examination fees paid are NOT refundable and transferable to other exam centres (i.e. from HKEAA to other authorized exam centres), or from one examination to another (i.e. from GCE to IGCSE) / a later series (i.e. from May/June to Oct/Nov series) or for other purposes. Please contact the HKEAA for further advice before submitting the registration if candidates wish to sit both subjects in the same sessions. Candidates who wish to sit more than one examination session on the same day are strongly advised to check and ensure that there is sufficient break time (e.g. at least two hours) between examination sessions for travelling and taking rest. These examinations may be held at different examination centres which very likely require travelling. Candidates who arrive the assigned examination centre later than the examination start time will not be permitted any extra time.
The Speaking Test of French (8682) and Spanish Language (8685) Paper 1 will be held between early to mid-April 2021 tentatively. It might happen on weekdays, weekends or public holidays subject to the candidature, availability of examination venues and oral examiners. Candidates are required to reserve their availability for taking the speaking test on the above period. No rescheduling of speaking test will be arranged. The admission letter with the exact examination dates, time and venues will be sent to private candidates by post or school candidates through their participating schools / organizations in mid-March 2021. Speaking Test will be audio-recorded as per examination regulation.
The results will be available around August 2021. Statements of Results will be sent to private candidates by post or school candidates through their participating schools / organizations. Candidates who have not received their results by early September 2021 MUST contact their participating schools / organizations or the HKEAA. Candidates may apply for the Enquiries About Results (EAR) services in accordance with the procedures, fees and deadlines to be announced after the results day. The certificates, if applicable, will be available around November 2021 which will be sent to private candidates by post or school candidates through their participating schools / organizations.
Candidates who have not received their certificates should contact the HKEAA to track the delivery status within 5 months after mail; otherwise, the certificates will be regarded as successfully received by the candidates. Certificates unclaimed for 5 months after mail will be returned to the Examination Board without further notice. After that, request for lost or unclaimed certificates will have to be made directly with the Examination Board by the candidates as applications for replacement certificates. Fees will be charged by the Examination Board. Candidates should inform the HKEAA in writing of their new address and contact telephone number if their address has been changed. The HKEAA cannot accept the responsibility for any possible loss, delay or damage in mail causing the need of requesting for replacement certificates.
