APROMINENT student counselling association has warned that the ''misconduct'' of some secondary schools in Form Six admission procedures be seriously looked into before the problem worsened. Hok Yau Club recently released a report on the 37 complaints they received 12 days before and after the release of the HKCEE results early this month. ''Obviously, some secondary schools deliberately violated the admission procedures set by the Education Department and there is no penalty for such misconduct,'' said the club's director of Student Guidance Centre Ng Tak-kay. The alleged misconduct was as follows: Some schools admitted students who scored less than 14 points in the best six subjects in the first stage of the admission procedure (only internal students with 14 points or more in the best six subjects should be accepted, according to the Education Department) in a bid to have enough students for their Form Six classes. Schools admitted external students with better results in the first stage of admission rather than taking their own students only. Without the students' consent, some schools retained their admission slips to ensure that students with good results could not apply to other schools. Schools admitted students even after 3.30 pm - the official closing time. Some schools had their own interpretation of the admission requirement of ''14 points or more in six best subjects''. The schools turned down their own students saying that some of their ''best subjects'' did not count as they were not part of the matriculation curriculum. For example, if a student obtained Grade A in Economics, but the school did not offer the subject, the five points attached to his grade would not be counted. Since some schools secretly ''promised'' places to students with good results, the Form Six vacancy figures released by the Education Department did not match the school's figures. Mr Ng criticised the procedure designed by the Education Department as ''too complicated, too long and totally unsupervised''. He also stressed that the 37 complaints they received through their 25 hotlines were only the ''tip of the iceberg'' since only the ''victims'' reported their dismay. Hok Yau Club called for tough supervision of admission procedures by the department and some sort of penalty for violations. ''The schools which repeatedly violate the procedures should be named in public. The government grant to such schools should be deducted and more of their Form Six seats should be taken for central allocation.'' The association will submit a formal report listing their suggestions to the Education Department.
