The Education and Manpower Bureau of Hong Kong (EMB) released the first consultation document of new academic structure for senior secondary education and higher education in October 2004. The document suggested that the new “3+3” secondary system, known as New Senior Secondary (NSS), should replace the current “3+2+2” pyramidal system. Therefore, the lower secondary system (S1 to S3) will be followed by a further 3 years in the senior secondary school for all students. At the same time, the three years structure of higher education system will change into four years in order to align with a number of important international higher educational systems including Mainland China.
