Message re submission of supporting documents

 

Dear PCLL applicants,

 

For those applicants applying to both the FT and PT PCLL programmes (which is strongly encouraged), please note that you are not required to send us duplicate copies of supporting documents i.e one set to accompany your FT application and a duplicate set to accompany your PT application. You may simply note your application reference numbers for both programmes on one set of supporting documents.

 

As previously advised, please note all supporting documents must reach us by the Documents Deadline of August 2nd 2024 at 5:30 pm (HKT) and you should send your documents by registered mail only. Please send us your supporting documents as soon as possible (including any interim transcripts, if available). For strong applicants, this will allow us to make early, conditional offers. You may send documents in more than one batch. 

 

Regards,

 

PCLL Admissions Office

IELTS One Skill ReTake Policy

 

The requirement that all PCLL applicants must obtain a minimum overall band score of 7 (Academic Module) in the IELTS examination is an eligibility requirement imposed by the Standing Committee on Legal Education and Training in Hong Kong.

 

In light of the new One Skill Retake Policy by IELTS, we have agreed in consultation with the other PCLL providers that we will not accept test results where an applicant has retaken one skill. This means that applicants must complete their IELTS examination in one attempt. Those applicants failing to obtain a minimum overall band score of at least 7 in one sitting, must retake all modules. 

 

In addition, our previous policies with respect to IELTS remain. These include:

- all applicants, including native English speakers, must submit a valid IELTS Test Report Form showing a minimum overall band score of 7 (Academic Module) by the Documents Deadline. For applications in 2024, the Documents Deadline is 5:30 p.m. (HKT) on Friday 2nd August. The Documents Deadline is final and cannot be extended; nor can the IELTS requirement be waived;

- only IELTS test results are accepted; no other English language tests will be accepted, including TOEFL;

- we accept IELTS tests obtained within three years of the Application Deadline, i.e. for a 2024 application, the test date shown on the IELTS Test Report Form cannot be earlier than 30 April 2021,

- we do not accept results where the IELTS test has been taken online. Applicants must attend an authorized IELTS testing centre in person to take the examination.

- applicants may arrange for the IELTS test centre to send their results to us directly, however, a hard copy of the Test Report Form must be sent; and 

- we strongly advise all applicants to send their IELTS Test Report Forms and other supporting documents by registered mail only. We do not accept deliveries by hand.
