HSK tests

The Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi, as well known as HSK, is the official Chinese Proficiency Test for Chinese language learners.

The test is administered by a non-government organization affiliated with the Ministry of Education of China. This organization is called Hanban (The Office of Chinese Language Council International), and provides teaching resources and services worldwide. Hanban organization develops the Chinese language expansion through its Confucius Institutes.

There are six levels (from HSK1 to HSK6) that cover spoken and written skills. The lower level is HSK1 and the higher one is HSK6.

For kids under 15 years old, HSK1 and HSK2 are divided into three YCT levels (Youth Chinese Test). HSK1 is the same than YCT1 + YCT2, and HSK2 is equal to YCT3.

There is another kind of test oriented to businesspeople, the BCT (Business Chinese Test).

In the following table the equivalences between British Council and Confucius Institute levels are shown.
