On Friday’s Backchat, we’re talking about the new arrangement for Hong Kong’s university entrance exam.
Students who take the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination, or HKDSE, will be allowed to take Korean language exams from 2025.
But the existing Hindi and Urdu examinations will no longer be offered.
An ethnic minority group has hit out at the move, saying it denies some students the chance to use their native language to secure a spot at a university.
After 9.15am, we’ll speak to New People’s Party chairwoman Regina Ip on her upcoming role as the Executive Council convener.
