Correlation between the Old HSK Score
and the New HSK Score

The new Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (new HSK) is based on the recent development of the structuralism and social linguistic theories. Its new concept of combining both teaching and testing in the testing design fulfills the old HSK's deficiency in the lower-level tests, and extends the old HSK's higher-level tests. This unique system of testing continually adjusts to the growing demand for Chinese globally. The below table shows the correlation in scores between the new HSK (level 3-6) and the old HSK (level 3-11):
