1, Should I take the HSK test in Hong Kong or Shenzhen/Guangzhou? What's the difference?The difference: 1, All HSK tests in Hong Kong are paper-based tests, HSKK will be recorded by a teacher and send to Beijing Hanban for scoring; In China(including Shenzhen and Guangzhou) the tests are computer based tests for both HSK and HSKK; 2, For HSK 3-6 students, you have to write all characters stroke by stroke in a paper-based test, but you can type and choose the characters like on your phone or computer if you take the computer-based tests, so if you learnt to read only, but not to write, you have no choice but to take the test in China, Shenzhen and Guangzhou are both super fast to reach by the high-speed train if you depart from Hong Kong; 3, The certificate issuing dates are different, the registration deadline is also different, if you miss a registration date in HK, you may can still try to get a spot for one in China. 4, The certificate issuing date is different, Hong Kong is about 2 weeks later than China. So, you can choose where you would like to go based on your situation, regarding to how to get the visa on site when you don't have one to Shenzhen, or other information you need help with, pls contact Mandarin Time Staff.
2, What are the HSK test dates in 2023&2024?In Hong Kong, there are 4 test dates in 2023, they are Apr 9th, July 16th, Aug 20th, and Dec 3rd. In China, there is a test date every month except February, many students who live in Hong Kong also go to Shenzhen or Guangzhou for HSK test since now the boarder is open and it's within 1 hour's travel. Check for the dates in Shenzhen and Guangzhou in the "HSK online registration form" drop down menu. For 2024 HSK test dates, Hanban will announce by December 2023, and Mandarin Time will update it on our site as soon as it's announced.
