SCHOOLS breaching the Form Six admissions procedures will be given a warning letter and blacklisted for future closer supervision. Simplified secondary six admission procedures will be adopted this year to help pupils avoid confusion and unfair treatment, according to the Education Department. The five-stage admission process would be shortened from 11 days to nine days, Kwan Shu-tsun, assistant director of education (schools division), said yesterday. Both application and registration procedures in the second and fourth stages of the process will be completed on the same day instead of two days. The process, introduced in 1991, requires schools to admit students with different qualifications at different stages. But many schools have been found to admit better students from other schools at stage one. They should admit only students from their own or linked schools who received 14 points or above in their best six HKCEE subjects (with five points for a grade A and one for a grade E). The Education Department last year received 20 complaints against schools for breaching the rules, compared to seven in 1993. The Hok Yau Club, which provides a counselling hotline service, said it believed the numbers were underestimated, because many pupils did not report to the department. Mr Kwan said: 'Now with a simplified procedure, we hope both schools and students will find the procedure easier to follow, with less confusion and unfair treatment.' He said schools would be warned officially and have their names blacklisted if they breached the rules. These schools would be under closer supervision next year. However, Ng Tak-kay, director of the Hok Yau Club's student guidance centre, said he was disappointed there were no improvements on the first two stages of the admission procedure. He said the authorities should think of preventive measures to stop students from being treated unfairly. 'Talking about warning or punishment to schools will not be of great help. The point is students will suffer under the existing procedures and the Government has failed to come up with measures to plug the loophole,' he said. 'The authorities should consider combining the first two stages of the process so that schools can admit students with 14 points or above in stage one no matter which schools the students come from.'
