1. Starting from the Secondary 4 Normal (Academic) cohort taking the 2012 GCE ‘N’-Level examinations, Secondary 4 Normal (Academic) students who obtained an ELMAB3 (English, Math, Best 3 Subjects) raw aggregate score of 11 points or better (excluding CCA bonus points) at the GCE ‘N’-Level examination will be eligible to apply to the PFP, provided that they have also obtained the following:

Secondary 4 Normal (Academic) Students who have sat for GCE ‘O’ Level Exams in a few subjects.
The PFP is also available to Secondary 4 Normal (Academic) students who have sat for their school-based ‘O’-Level preliminary and GCE ‘O’-Level examinations in a few subjects. For duplicate ‘N’-Level and ‘O’-Level subjects, only the better of the two grades is to be included in the computation of the ELMAB3 aggregate score. For example, if a student takes the same Mathematics subject at both ‘N’-Level and ‘O’-Level, only the better grade will count towards his/her ELMAB3 aggregate.
The following GCE ‘O’-Level Grade conversion matrix will be adopted during the computation of aggregates.
'O'-Level grades not listed above cannot be used to determine PFP eligibility (i.e. 'O'-Level grades E8 and F9 do not count towards either the ELMAB3 aggregate score computation or in determining if minimum entry requirements for the PFP course have been met).
