2017 HSK Registration Manual

HSK (Hanyu shuiping kaoshi) is an international Chinese language test to measure a student’s ability to communicate in Chinese in daily life, academic and work settings. HSK consists of two independent parts, a written test and an oral test (HSKK). The Youth Chinese Test (YCT) is designed for students at the pre-college level.

HSK is offered on levels 1-6, and YCT on levels 1-4. Students register to take the test on a particular level.

UBCI administers HSK and YCT several times a year. The oral test (HSKK), which is required for Hanban scholarships, is offered four times a year in conjunction with HSK.
