Trinity College, Toronto
Trinity College is a college of the University of Toronto, founded in 1851 by Bishop John Strachan. Trinity was intended by Strachan as a college of strong Anglican alignment, in 1904, Trinity joined the university as a member of its collegiate federation. Trinity College presently consists of a secular undergraduate section and a divinity school that is part of the Toronto School of Theology. Reflecting its English heritage, the college emulates Oxbridge traditions as the wearing of gowns at dinner, a choir that includes choral scholars. Bishop John Strachan, an Anglican priest and Archdeacon of York, the colonial college was effectively controlled by the Church of England and members of the elite Family Compact. In 1849, over opposition from Strachan, Reformists took control of the college. Incensed by this decision, Strachan immediately began raising funds for the creation of Trinity College, working with Kivas Tully, Charles Barry Cleveland superintended many of their important architectural works in eastern Canada including the Trinity College campus at the University of Toronto.
The building featured Gothic Revival design, the cornerstone was laid on April 30,1851. Trinity was incorporated as an independent university on 2 August 1851, the Cameron property on Queen Street in western Toronto was purchased for £2,000, and the college opened to students at the site on January 15,1852. On January 10,1842 the first lecture was given at the Diocesan Theological Institute in Cobourg, in 1852, teaching was transferred to Toronto in the new Faculty of Divinity at Trinity College. Trinity College absorbed the Diocesan Theological Institute in Cobourg in 1852, Trinity College gradually expanded its teaching beyond arts and divinity, and by the end of the 19th century its scope had included medicine, music and dentistry. The college admitted its first female students in 1884, and St. Hildas College was created in 1888 as the college of Trinity. With Strachans death in 1867, efforts could begin to unite Trinity College with the University of Toronto, after taking office in 1900, provost Thomas C. S.
Macklem supported joining the college with the University of Toronto. The matter became hotly contested when Trinitys medical faculty merged with the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine in 1903, after what Macklem described as a long-drawn and bitter series of debates, the college voted 121 to 73 in favour of federation with the University of Toronto. The university made a concession to allow Trinity to administer its own examination in religious subjects, on October 1,1904, Trinity became part of the University of Toronto and relinquished to the university its authority to grant degrees in subjects other than theology. It became clear that the relocation of Trinity closer to the university was necessary, the former site of the college became Trinity Bellwoods Park. Towards the end of the 20th century, the place of longstanding institutions and traditions within the community underwent changes initiated by internal and external parties. Episkopon, a society based in the college since 1858, was officially dissociated from Trinity in 1992, on 30 April 2002 Canada Post issued University of Trinity College, 1852-2002 as part of the Canadian Universities series

The University of Oxford has a long tradition of academic dress, which continues to the present day. In addition, gowns are worn with cap and subfusc to, on certain occasions, e. g. the Encaenia garden party, by tradition, graduates wear gown and hood without subfusc. The wearing of subfusc remains a popular tradition, a previous referendum in 2006 showed 81% support for subfusc. After the names of the components, the Groves classification system is given, the gowns in use in Oxford can be divided into two basic shapes. All gowns are open-fronted, except for the Doctors convocation habit which is closed at the front, all of the above have open bell-shaped sleeves, with the exception of the MA gown and the Doctors convocation habit. The MA gown has long closed sleeves with arm slits just above the elbow, the Doctors convocation habit is sleeveless. Gowns of the basic shape are worn by barristers, preachers.

Hoods in Oxford are of three shapes and Bachelors of Divinity wear hoods in the Oxford full shape, scarlet in the case of doctors and black in the case of Bachelors of Divinity. All other hoods can be either in the Burgon shape or the Oxford simple shape, most of the newer degrees use the Burgon whilst older degrees use either, although the Burgon shape is becoming more popular. Generally, hoods are worn by graduates whenever subfusc is worn, men wear a mortarboard, which is not worn indoors, except by the Chancellor, Vice-Chancellor and Proctors. When meeting the Vice-Chancellor, Proctors, or other official of the university in the street. In practice few people wear their caps nowadays, and instead carry their caps on occasions where caps are required, women may choose between the mortarboard or the soft cap. Originally, women were required to wear their caps during university ceremonies. From Michaelmas 1995, they were required to wear the soft cap, from Hilary 2008, they are now, like men, required to carry their mortarboards when at university ceremonies indoors.
Women who opt for the cap must still wear, and not carry. Doctors in the lay faculties wear Tudor bonnets, which are round, subfusc comes from the Latin for of a dark/dusky colour, and refers to the clothes worn with full academic dress in Oxford. Previously, men were required to wear, Dark suit and socks, women were previously required to wear, White blouse

Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education
The Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education is an academic qualification offered by Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority. Under the new framework, many subjects in the HKCEE and HKALE have been combined to suit the varying interests. Candidates are examined on core subjects and elective options of their preference, most candidates are expected to take four core subjects plus two or three elective subjects. Each HKDSE subject includes a part and an elective or extended part. The elective or extended part consists of modules from which students may choose, an elective module is an integral component of the standard curriculum, whereas an extended module is designed for students who may need additional knowledge and skills. Elective Part Example, The elective part of the HKDSE English Language curriculum will take up 25% of lesson time, proposed modules in the elective part are divided into two groups, Language Arts and Non-Language Arts, both of which are about learning English in different contexts and media.
In the examination, the paper is divided into two levels which students can choose during the exam, which the level only allows a maximum grade of 4. Examinations of most Category A subjects are conducted between early March to early May, while the oral examinations and some subjects are conducted at earlier time. Category C subjects are conducted in June, Category B subject do not have an open examination. For Mathematics, grades for the part are listed separately on certificates. If not, at most of 7 category A subjects can be taken. They are vocational-oriented subjects in order to satisfy the needs of employers, applied Learning Subjects may be used by tertiary institutes as admission requirement. Which is equivalent of a Grade 2 in an elective for Attained, Category C subjects adopt the same paper as the General Certificate of Education AS-level, and are provided and marked by the Cambridge International Examinations. For Category A subjects in HKDSE, results will be expressed in terms of seven levels, of which level 5** is the highest, Distinction levels 5** and 5* will be awarded to the two best-performing groups of candidates attaining level 5.
Unclassified grade exist in cases like absence, cheating. Also, the grading system, experts from each subject will set the standards for each level. Level descriptors and examples will be based on syllabus objectives and collected data, including past exam statistics, grading in a criterion-referenced system reflects a candidates level of attainment in the particular subject and not where the candidate stands compared with others who have taken the exam. Before the exam the candidate will be familiar with the different level descriptors and samples, after results are released, candidates will have a clearer picture of their attainment level. Tertiary institutions and employers will have more robust information to use for admission or recruitment purposes
