HSK includes two levels, i.e. the Elementary-Intermediate Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK Elementary-Intermediate) and the Advanced Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK Advanced). HSK is held regularly in China and other countries each year. The Certificate of HSK is issued to those who have secured the required scores. HSK is applied to those who are at the elementary and intermediate level in Chinese proficiency, i.e., who have taken 400-2000 regular hours of modern Chinese courses ,including those whose proficiency in Chinese is similar to that standard.
