   ♦   The Means Test and Levels of Assistance

-Our school will use the “Adjusted Family Income” (AFI) mechanism as the means test to assess the eligibility of a family for fee remission scheme and its assistance level.

-The AFI mechanism is based on the following formula:

AFI = Gross annual income of the family

Number of family members + (1)


**Only Number of family, System will automatically increase one.


   ♦   Gross annual income of the family includes the annual income of applicant and his/her spouse; 30% of the annual income of unmarried child/ children residing with the family if applicable; and the contribution from relatives/ friends if applicable.


   ♦   The members of a family normally refer to the applicant, his/her spouse, unmarried child/ children residing with the family and the dependent parent(s) of the family.


   ♦   For single-parent families of 2 to 3 members, the ‘plus 1 factor’ in the divisor of the AFI formula will be increased to 2.


   ♦   Students from families on Comprehensive Social Security Assistance Scheme will be given full school fee remission.
