o prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, the Higher Education Bureau of the Macao SAR has decided to postpone the four-university joint entrance examination for the 2020/2021 academic year to between 16 April and 19 April 2020, upon discussion with the four universities, namely University of Macau (UM), Macao Polytechnic Institute, the Institute for Tourism Studies, and Macau University of Science and Technology.
