This marks the sixth summer since CUHK-Shenzhen first started its undergraduate admissions. The overall admission scores of 2019 (mostly Gaokao-based) have taken a further leap thanks to a growing recognition of the University's innovative systems and education philosophy by stduents and parents across the nation, as well as the exceptionally exellent performances achieved by our first two classes of baccalaureate graduates.
