Both my daughters have taken the HSK Level 5, one in 2014 and the other in 2015. We felt it was necessary for them as they have been exempted from Chinese having been educated overseas until 2013 (they did learn some Chinese there, but they were approx P3-4 standard when they were already in sec school!). We just wanted them to have a qualification that shows they have a basic grasp of the language (and it was a chance to "force" them to learn a bit more.) I got them to do some prep, including downloading the mobile app on their phones to learn more vocab. They didn't do that well, but good enough that they have the cert.bebebub wrote:slmkhoo, how did the test go for your dd2?

How are the oral and writing components like? Thanks!
My dd's school is encouraging the students to sit for the test. Dd has the option to take either level 5 or 6. We are unsure if she should sit for the test at all. Any idea if there are real advantage in taking the test? Dd thinks Level 6 is beyond her ability. Any disadvantage to opt for Level 5 instead?
Thanks in advance
I actually don't think it's much use for students who are taking Chinese in school as the standard in school is higher. I would say no point really working for Level 6.
