Language Exams

We are a registered exam centre and offer students the opportunity to sit a series of different exams including the HSK exam (levels 1-6), the HSKK exam (all levels) and the YCT exam (all levels).

The new YCT (Youth Chinese Test) is an international standardized test of Chinese language proficiency. It assesses young foreign students' abilities to use Chinese in their daily and academic lives. The new YCT consists of a writing test which is divided into four levels, namely, the YCT (level I), YCT (level II), YCT (level III), and YCT (level IV).
