About 46,700 students took the English Paper 3 of listening and integrated skills this morning.

Among the 24 students in Penny's Bay, 13 went there due to the quarantine order, and 11 were there because they were infected with Covid-19.

Twenty-one of them took the exam but not the three infected candidates who felt unwell.

The Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority said the Public Examinations Information Centre handled an application from a student just this morning who requested an isolated exam room in Penny's Bay.

Today's exam is staged at 467 hall exam centers, 214 classrooms, and 630 special exams centers for students with special educational needs.
