  • HSK

The Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi, also known as HSK, or the Chinese Proficiency Test, is the national standardised test of Chinese as a foreign language. Established in Beijing in 1988, the HSK is widely recognised as the most comprehensive of Chinese language proficiency tests. The HSK measures the proficiency level of non-native speakers of standard Chinese, which may include foreigners, overseas Chinese, and students from Chinese national minorities. It is used as a guideline for admission to colleges and universities in China and Southeast Asia, as well as a reference standard in job recruiting, both within China and in countries around the world where Chinese language skills are necessary.

Your child's Mandarin teacher can suggest which level of test is most appropriate for any students who wish to take the exam and also support them to work on past papers.

The levels and fees for the test are as follows:

Level                                Examination Fee

HSK Level I                         150 RMB             

HSK Level II                        250 RMB       

HSK Level III                      350 RMB

HSK Level IV                      450 RMB             

HSK Level V                        550 RMB     

HSK Level VI                      650 RMB
