Students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds have faced the greatest challenges during school suspension – their needs were unsuited for the overnight switch to remote learning.

The most recent set of  Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (DSE) exam results

 was released earlier this month and, perhaps unsurprisingly, there was a drop in student attainment compared to the last couple of years. Only 18,752 students achieved the minimum results necessary to apply for one of the 15,000 subsidised places at local universities, 6 per cent less than the previous year’s cohort.
