Important notes

  • Postponement/cancellation of an examination will be announced on Trinity Hong Kong’s website at least two hours before the commencement of the examination.


  • Unless Trinity Hong Kong has announced that the examination has been postponed/ cancelled due to severe weather conditions, you must assume that the examination will be conducted as originally scheduled.


  • We will not be able to confirm the arrangement until a foreseeable announcement is made by the Hong Kong Observatory. Trinity will keep close contact with centres/candidates/parents on the day when severe weather may affect their examinations. There are possibilities of resuming the examination session on the same day after the cancellation of typhoon signal, reschedling the whole session on a later day, or postponing the examinations to the next examination session.


  • If you have difficulties in reaching the examination centre, you should contact Trinity’s Hong Kong office on 2142 3921/ 9504 6446 at least 30 minutes before the examination.
