Hong Kong students tread lightly as key exam touches on press freedom


Some candidates of Hong Kong’s key university entrance examination have said they had to tread lightly in the Liberal Studies test on Monday, after a compulsory question on press freedom put them in a tough spot.

Candidates of the Diploma of Secondary Education (DSE) were asked to describe public opinion on press freedom in the city, as well as identify scenarios in which a dilemma may arise between freedom of press and social responsibility. They had to base their answers on sources provided in the paper and their own knowledge.

The question on press freedom was seen as “political” by some candidates, who said they did not expect to encounter it in the test, according to RTHK.
