Other Chinese Tests Offered
In addition to the standard HSK tests, Hanban also offers the Business Chinese Test (BCT) and the Young Learners Chinese Test (YCT) which will also be administered at the Chinese Flagship Center.
Business Chinese Test (BCT)
Relevant to the HSK, the Business Chinese Test serves as important indicators for a learner’s use of Chinese in a professional work environment. As a result, the test serves the need of government departments, businesses and various universities and colleges of all countries. The test results are also commonly used to exempt students’ participation in relevant business Chinese language courses. Students with at least elementary or higher levels of Chinese language proficiency are suited for the test. Certificates are awarded when test-takers meet minimum proficiency scores.
The Business Chinese Test is a standardized test designed to assess the learners’ communicative capabilities in applying Chinese language to conduct business. Two independent tests in the BCT are the BCT (Listening & Reading) and BCT (Speaking & Writing). Examination candidates can opt for one of the two tests, or both.
Young Learners Chinese Test (YCT)
Just as the HSK is tailored for college and university students, the Youth Chinese Test is a standardized Chinese proficiency test for non-native Chinese learners under the age of 15. The new YCT test consists of two independent parts: written and oral test. The written test is made up of four levels from YCT-Level 1 to YCT-Level 4. The oral exam includes YCT (elementary) and YCT (intermediate).
