More than half the students applying for university will be disappointed when almost all 14,500 available places are filled today with the release of the joint admission results. More than 32,000 students who took part in this year's Joint University Programmes Admissions Scheme will learn the result of their application. But limited places mean 55 per cent of the participants will be rejected. Although the Government had warned institutions not to admit students who failed in languages, Baptist University said yesterday that it might consider them. The university last year accepted 40 students who failed Use of English and 28 who failed Chinese Language and Culture. A spokesman said it would offer 1,266 places in the first round today. 'The Baptist University in principle will not accept students who fail languages,' the spokesman said. 'But if there are some who excel in other areas, we will follow the guidelines of the University Grants Committee and consider individual students.' The University of Hong Kong said it would not accept students who failed either language. Deputy registrar Henry Wai Wing-kun said all its 2,446 places in the joint admission scheme would be filled today. About 300 places would be reserved for students from overseas, local international schools or mature students. He said: 'We don't think we will have places left in the joint admission scheme. Students need not ask about vacancies. 'We are satisfied with overall standards of the students. About 94 per cent of the students put our programmes as their first three choices.'
