Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (HSK)
The HSK test is China’s official language proficiency exam. HSK results are internationally recognised as proof of Chinese language proficiency. Many non-native Chinese speakers take the test sometime during their language study. The Confucius Institute at UWA is the Western Australia provider of the HSK. HSK testing is held in February and October at the Confucius Institute’s Claremont Campus.
The HSK test was launched by Hanban in an effort to better serve Chinese language learners. The test is the result of coordinated efforts by experts from different disciplines including Chinese language teaching, linguistics, psychology and educational measurement. The newest HSK exam combines the advantages of the original HSK while taking into consideration recent trends in Chinese language training and the latest findings in international language testing.
The Confucius Institute provides individual tutoring for the HSK exam upon request. Please fill out the enrolment form and contact email@example.com to enrol. Please use https://www.trybooking.com/LULB to process your payment.
Youth Chinese Test (YCT)
The YCT test was developed by Hanban in an effort to encourage non-Chinese speaking primary and secondary school students to learn Chinese and improve their Chinese language proficiency. It consists of four levels in line with the HSK testing system, with the highest level equivalent to HSK Level 3.
The Confucius Institute held YCT tests in August and November 2017. If you are interested in taking the YCT in the future, contact us or your school Chinese teacher.
Please note candidates are able to pay for both the August and November YCT tests using TryBooking. However the chinesetest.cn site will currently only accept registrations for the August test. Please check back here for any updates.
