Finding the right path
For those unsure about their future, Eddy Yeung recommends talking to a career adviser at school. Information about programmes can also be found at university open days and information sessions.
Ada Chan says aptitude tests such as the one on the PolyU website can help applicants find programmes that may suit them.
A broad-based degree is one option for those with vague ambitions.
Applicants whose A-level results are marginal for entry to full-degree programmes could also consider a higher diploma or associate degree, which tend to be more vocational.
