Taking the Test

Once you registered online, admission tickets will be generated online and can be printed. Note: Level 1 test-takers cannot register online and must register through the Chinese Flagship Center. Admission tickets for level 1 (and for students registered through paper) will be issued through the Chinese Flagship Center.

Please note that all test-takers are required to present a photo ID and their admission ticket before entering the HSK test location on the test date.

  • Both the Test Admission Ticket and a photo ID are required for admission to the testing room. Please be sure to come at least 15 minutes before test time to check in.
  • Please bring only pencils and erasers. A test-taker should have nothing on the table but the test booklet, answer sheet, pencils, and erasers. All other books, reference guides, papers, or electronic devices of any kind are prohibited.
  • People taking the test who are less than five minutes late can enter the testing room. Those who are more than five minutes late but less than thirty-five minutes late may enter the testing room only after the first section (Listening Comprehension) is finished, with NO make-up for the missed section. No test-takers that are more than thirty-five minutes late will be admitted to the testing center; such test-takers automatically lose the opportunity to take the test, with NO make-up whatsoever.


We recommend that you save your admission tickets so you can use it to check your test results later online. See details in the “Test Results” section.
