4. Summary from the Students

The HSK online exam and the written exam have the same time and the same topic. However, the difference is that the online exam is to answer questions by computer, instead of filling out the answer sheet. The HSK online exam features a multiple-choice that examinees can click through their mice. There are two ways to choose the writing part:

one is to write by pen, and after the paper is handed in, the invigilator scans it into the computer and uploads it to the headquarters for checking. The Second one is typing directly on the computer. Computer typing features an input method freely customized according to each person’s operating habits. Pinyin or Wubi input is applicable. In the listening part, the online test is a headset for each person, and the questions are done while listening on the computer. The written test of listening is in an examination room, playing listening audio with speakers and listening as a group.

Hoping all Chinese learners will get good results from the HSK Test!
