Getting your child into the school you want often requires years of planning. Itvaries with school type but many parents make multiple applications, trying theaided sector and sought-after Direct Subsidy Scheme schools, and backing up byscouring international and other private schools.
 
International kindergartens
Most offerplaces on a first-come, first-served basis.For popular preschools, it is necessary toput a child's name on waiting lists early. 
International schools
Most requirechildren to show they can learn in English,and many are selective, taking into accountearly academic ability and social skills.Places in Chinese International School'sreception year, for example, are based on observation sessions to assess languageabilities (English and Putonghua), and academic and social skills. For later years,students must sit tests in English, Chinese and maths, and at secondary level, non-verbal reasoning. Both Chinese and HK International School accept applications twoyears before admission. Some, such as Canadian International, offer places on afirst-come-first-served basis.
English Schools Foundation schools
Applications should be lodged in Septemberfor Year One and Year Seven and are sorted according to admission criteria withchildren from non-Chinese-speaking families given priority. 
Direct Subsidy Scheme primary schools
The most sought-after DSS schoolsnormally set admission deadlines in early September, but some run a second roundof admissions for a limited number of places. Places are offered after interviews based on factors such as academic achievement in preschool, language abilities andextra-curricular activities. Children of alumni and, for schools with religious backgrounds, members of sponsoring church bodies may have priority.
 
 
Direct Subsidy Scheme secondary schools
Admission is based on academicachievement in primary school and an interview. Extra-curricular activities may betaken into account. It is essential to retain all academic records and certificates.Diocesan Girls' School, for example, asks to see school reports for three consecutiveyears. The more popular schools have limited admission periods, normallyNovember to January. Less-popular schools admit students until shortly before thestart of the academic year. This allows those not successful in gaining places inaided schools to shop around during the summer term for Primary and SecondaryOne places, and Form Six after HKCEE results are announced. 
Aided primary schools
Applications must be made in the last week of September.Parents can apply to only one school but their choice is not restricted by their schoolnet. Results are announced in late November. If unsuccessful, parents can thenapply through the central allocation system before late January, with resultsannounced in early June. 
Aided secondary schools
Forms are distributed in late November and applicationsfor discretionary places need to be made between late December and late January.Parents can apply for places at two schools. Applications for central allocation aremade through primary schools in early May and results are released in mid-July.
