The first on-line grading was conducted on 30 July 2005 at Pioneer Junior College (PJC).
75 candidates were tested using the programme designed by Vincent Lau, a blackbelt holder and former student of PJC. It is user friendly and simplifies the grading progress.
The candidates were glad that they did not have to wait for the results. They could get their results immediately after the grading by logging on to the site.
If the Technical Committee and the Board of Examiners are satisfied with effectiveness and efficiency of the programme, it will eventually be used for the centralised grading. But this will not be soon as there are implementation issues to be resolved.
