Anyone can check your results online if you give them the admission ticket number, but even better I just noticed you can download a digital certificate as a PDF.

 

I wrote this in a separate post to make it easier to find:

Great news! Amazing, thanks for this.

 

I just have to find all my log in details now, as my computer died yesterday, I'm using an old laptop now! doh!!

Damn, June 5 is last day to take HSK 2.0??  I may rush in a bit to take my HSK 6 under the old system, before prepping up for 3.0.

 

Is there a difference which "test center" we choose for the home tests?  As I discussed earlier in this thread, I found the center you take the old exams to make a big difference (for me at least), because the fonts were illegible (well, less legible for beginners) on the old computers.  Are there any related concerns here?  Better to do with a certain test center with better fonts or systems?

 

Thanks!!

From this page (https://improvemandarin.com/new-hsk/) I understand that the new level tests will probably not be rolled out before 2023-2024. Perhaps only levels 7-9 of the test will be added earlier. So I assume it will still be possible to take the old level tests for a couple of years.

I was also thinking about having a pop at HSK4 before the change, I couldn't pass it, but if the test was June, I would perhaps try, for the sake of 40 quid!

But then I thought, surely they won't be running any tests in June, as what is the point?

 

But then read the post above mine ^^^

 

maybe it's worth taking a high level, if the implementation of the new system won't be for a while.

Thanks but isn't this an outdated article?  There are many from this past week that say the new system begins Jul 1 2021.  E.g. https://ltl-school.com/new-hsk/

But basically any google hit for "new hsk" says Jul 1 2021.

 

This seems to be further corroborated by my trying to register for an exam (HSK6) and the latest test date available anywhere in the US is in June.

No rush — the existing exams are scheduled until December 2021 at least.

That's interesting, as it doesn't seems consistent with the test date availability in the US.  But also, I don't see it say anywhere that that list is for HSK 2.0?  If I'm not missing something, it could be implying that the later test dates are for 3.0?

The official notice from the MOE says that the standard will be "officially implemented" 正式实施 from 1 July, but it's not clear what that means or how it will affect the exams.

 

That's less than 3 months away, and there has been nothing published yet about the new exam formats and no textbooks etc.  As some of the old hands here have pointed out, when HSK 2.0 replaced 1.0 there was a period of parallel running where both sets of exams were available.

Interesting — I just tried to register for HSK 5 and HSKK Intermediate in the UK as well as Hangzhou and Beijing, and I'm only seeing dates up to June as well.
