Online test: Chinese language proficiencyAn online test of Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (HSK)—Chinese Language Proficiency Test—was launched on Saturday to cater to the growing number of students opting for higher education in China every year. The test has been administered in the conventional written form until now.
The HSK is required for admission in the Chinese academic institutions which provide education in their native language. A majority of the academic institutions in China administer education in Chinese with only few using English as a medium of instruction. Governed by the Confucius Institute Beijing, the HSK test will be now conducted online by LRI Confucius Classroom. Ease of taking the test and early results are some of the features of the online test.
