Four higher education institutions of Macao namely the University of Macau, Macao Polytechnic University, Macao Institute for Tourism Studies and Macau University of Science and Technology (hereinafter referred to as “the Four Institutions”) jointly implement the “Joint Admission Examination for Macao Four Higher Education Institutions (Subjects: Languages and Mathematics)” (hereinafter referred to as “JAE”). JAE refers to the admission examinations on four subjects namely Chinese, Portuguese, English and Mathematics jointly organised by the Four Institutions. Any written examination or interview for subjects other than these four subjects shall be arranged and announced by the Four Institutions individually.

The Four Institutions shall admit students according to their own admission criteria. Candidates are advised to check against the rules/regulations of relevant institutions for the corresponding admission requirements for individual programmes. As JAE is not a unified examination, there is no centralised allocation. Candidates may be admitted by multiple institutions for their higher education choices.
