I am planning to take the HSK 6 again. Probably December 3 2017, one month from today. Anyone else interested?

I'll be taking it in February. I am signed up for the one at the end of November but am putting it off so that I can study during winter break.

For HSK6, 100 possible points for each part (listening/reading/writing).

There isn't an official passing threshold anymore, but previously it was 180/300.

What? is just arbitrary? The examiner liked the colour of your t-shirt:shock:

if it's like the japanese jlpt then they grade it on a bell distribution curve... which is probably fairer as tests' difficulty varies from year to year

Some universities seem to have clear requirements, for instance Fudan's pharmacology doctoral program:


Entry Requirements

  • Non-Chinese citizens with good health
  • Master degree holder
  • HSK 5 above 240 or HSK 6 above 180 received with two years

(according to CUCAS)



The old HSK used to be graded on a bell curve.

My understanding is that in the new HSK the listening and reading parts (客观题) grades are proportional to the number of questions you answer correctly.

At least that's what they say here: http://www.chinesetest.cn/userfiles/file/HSK-pingfen.pdf

(although they take care to add that this information is for self-evaluation, leaving the actual grading method a mystery)

I got a 221 this year after studying Chinese for an embarrassingly long amount of time (three years in high school and...every year since then)


Good to know different unis have different HSK standards, that will make the search for grad school in China even more...interesting:lol:
