General Typhoon / Bad Weather Arrangements

As cancellation and/or postponement of an examination is a very serious matter, any decision to do so by the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority (HKEAA) will be made only when it is absolutely necessary. If weather conditions are at all doubtful (such as the possible hoisting of a Typhoon Signal No. 8 or above or the issue of the Rainstorm Red or Black Warning), candidates should pay attention to the radio or television broadcast, or view the HKEAA website for examination schedules right up to the time they leave for the examination centre. Candidates should note that:

(a) under normal circumstances, the HKEAA announcement of the postponement/cancellation of an examination will be made approximately two hours before the commencement of the examination;

(b) the announcement of closure of schools due to a tropical cyclone/the issue of the Rainstorm Red or Black Warning does not necessarily imply any postponement/cancellation of an examination scheduled to be held on that day;

(c) unless an announcement has been made by the HKEAA that examinations/public examinations/ international and professional examinations held by the HKEAA are postponed/cancelled due to bad weather conditions, candidates must assume that their examinations will be conducted as originally scheduled;

(d) once an examination has started, it will continue for the full allotted time unless physical conditions in the examination centre are considered to be dangerous by the Centre Supervisor.
