Full Support for the DSE Candidates

Exam results day is both exciting and nerve wracking and this is true too for the Form 6 students who sat their HKDSE, their parents and teachers. For some, the results are positive, but for others, there are disappointment. In this pandemic year, these emotions are more acute than normal.

In fact, the anxiety among students began long before these results. Suspension of face-to-face instruction in schools was a concern given the consequences for students' learning. Earlier, from 21 June to 12 July 2021, the Federation's DSE 2777 1112, conducted an online survey with 569 HKDSE students on Further Studies and Career Planning. Over 75% of HKDSE students were frustrated with the "mixed-mode" format and special learning arrangements during the school year; and more than 70% were worried that their performance in the exams would be impacted by their own expectations. Many others expressed worry about the loss of  learning as a result of school suspensions and other unstable situations not of their own making. 
The Federation will therefore continue to support DSE candidates and their parents with both hotline and online counselling, as well as consultations help them prepare for the release of the HKDSE results. We have also been providing students with further study and career information; and hosted a Feel to Heal Wellness Market with workshops and music performances to help them relax, while also inviting celebrities to share their advice on life planning and to provide students with supportive messages on videotape.
Now as the results get released, from today until 23 July 2021, DSE 2777 1112 will enhance its hotline services and uTouch online counselling providing all-round support to all that need it.  
Let's walk together with the candidates, so that they can walk further!
