On 24 April Club Meeting, Dr Simon Leung will speak us on “The Double Cohort Year of 2012”. The background for this topic is that there will be two groups of high school graduates applying to study universities this summer. They are so called the last batch of F.7 A Level (HKALE) Graduates and the first batch of S.6 Diploma (HKDSE) Graduates. As Rotarians yourselves or your friends will likely have children applying for university study this summer, you would be interested to know more about this territory-wide important topic.
