Chairman’s Message

2017 marks the HKEAA’s 40th Anniversary and we look forward to celebrating with you our proud record of achievements grounded in our commitment to deliver examinations and assessment services to meet the society’s education needs.

Over the past four decades, the HKEAA has seen crucial changes in the education sector in Hong Kong and has played important and critical roles, ranging from the administration of the Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination (HKCEE) in 1978 to the launching of the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (HKDSE) in 2012. I have witnessed the successful development of the HKDSE since 2012 and have the satisfaction to have played a part in helping the HKDSE gain worldwide recognition as an academic credential and a well-trusted qualification today.

We have also administered numerous international and professional examinations with international acclaims. Millions of young people have received certificates for their academic achievements from HKEAA to further their education and acquired the qualifications that would help them succeed professionally.

In the last 40 years the HKEAA has established a reputation as a trustworthy and professional examination body. It has been my great honour to lead the HKEAA team as Chairman of the Authority in the past five years and to continue with the hard work of my predecessors to strive for better quality of our examinations and assessment services. My gratitude goes to our colleagues for their passion and commitment to providing quality assessment services. We are also blessed to have enjoyed the keen support and shared commitment of stakeholders at all levels of the education system to ensuring that our examination services are fair and reliable.

This year would be a challenging, yet fruitful year for the HKEAA. We are confident to rise to the challenges in our work, and it would be our pleasure to celebrate our 40th anniversary with the education community and the public with a series of celebratory activities, from open days to academic forum aiming at raising awareness and understanding of our services.

On behalf of the HKEAA, let me thank you for your support and the trust you place on the examinations we administer and the qualifications we confer. I look forward to working closely with our partners and stakeholders to make HKEAA into a world-renowned and well-trusted examination and assessment services provider in the globe.
