Name: Victor Yip Age: 21 Top Tunes: Canto-pop, English pop and hip hop It's a good thing that top mainland students are coming to Hong Kong. This brings talent to the city. But I'm concerned that they may be taking up university places reserved for local students. Also, I think the city's universities are offering too many scholarships to students from across the border. Both Hong Kong and mainland students should have equal access to scholarships. Name: Woody Mak Age: 18 Top Tunes: Taiwanese songs and Canto-pop An influx of mainland students to Hong Kong would put pressure on local students to work harder. This is good for Hong Kong because it will help raise the standards, especially since critics are saying it's too easy to get into university. Name: Dephnie Chan Age: 17 Top Tunes: English pop There is keen competition in Hong Kong. Students have to pass the HKCEE and A-Levels to get a university place. The arrival of elite students from the mainland will make schooling even more competitive. But I think we should be optimistic and see it as a challenge, not a threat. Young people should think of ways to improve themselves and face the future with confidence. Name: Winnie Lo Age: 18 Top Tunes: English pop I feel threatened, especially since mainland students are likely to stay in Hong Kong and look for jobs. It is not fair for local universities to provide scholarships to them. We should make ourselves more competitive in the job market by taking summer courses and learning Putonghua. Name: Money Leung Age: 19 Top Tunes: Oldies There are many intelligent young people in Hong Kong, but their talent has not been recognised. Local universities should not admit mainland students just because they score high marks in exams. They should also look at other aspects. I'm not worried about competition from mainland students, because I believe I will get a decent job as long as I work hard. The most important thing is to set a goal and work towards it.
