The May HSK exam diet offers candidates the choice of online or offline options to secure a Chinese language proficiency certificate. The exam, which runs globally, is offered at 6 levels with level one being appropriate for students who have studied for up to 40 hours.
The online format is most suitable for those who are familiar in using a keyboard to input pinyin and select characters. Offline i.e. a written exam is recommended for those who have not built up this skill.
An oral component (known as HSKK) is also available as an option.
Registration for the exam must be received by Thursday 11th April. Full details of the HSK and the registration form can be found at www.confuciusinstitute.ac.uk/hsk
