The Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) stands for the academic qualification offered by the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority (HKEAA).
Spanish is offered as part of the elective subjects in the category C (other language subjects).
Most of the times, Spanish is the choice for those students whose mother tongue is not Chinese. However, Chinese students also may take Spanish as part of their secondary education. The HKDSE is usually chosen by local students in Hong Kong in order to apply to local universities.
Spanish subject, being part of Category C subjects, adopts the same paper as the General Certificate of Education AS-level. The exams are provided by the Cambridge International Examinations board.
The question papers of the AS (Advanced Subsidiary) level from Cambridge Assessment International Education are used for the examinations of Spanish DSE in Hong Kong.
The weighting for the Spanish DSE exam is as follows:
Reading and writing
|AS Spanish||29%||20 mins||50%||1 hour 45 mins||21%||1 hour 30 mins|
Regarding the topics covered throughout the Spanish syllabus, it is very similar to the IB Diploma, and there is a strong focus on the intercultural knowledge of the candidate.
