Many HKDSE candidates will enter university in September under the 3+3+4 curriculum.

With only six years of secondary education, they may face new challenges.

City University's College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences is launching a new mentoring course to help these students.

The programme is called 'Fundamentals of University Learning'. It will be compulsory for all first-year students at the college.

The course seeks to help them make up for the lost year of secondary education by giving them important study skills.
