Susan viewed the HSK with a curious mixture of loathing and admiration. The test had certainly not been kind to her; it took pleasure in pointing out her grammatical failings and treated errors in Chinese word choice as abominations. Yet it was hard not to admire the exam for its dedication to its mission. For while it was often cruel, its cruelty was a form of kindness, or at least emotionally indifferent assistance to those seeking self-improvement.

Planning on taking the new HSK? Our HSK test for today consists of fifteen questions that measure your knowledge of the exact grammar and vocabulary points on which you will be tested for the real exam. Your challenge here is to click-and-drag these fifteen sentences into proper order. Once you're done this exercise, check our massive HSK test archive, which by now has thousands upon thousands of questions to help you master the test and demonstrate mandarin proficiency.

@marksaka,

For what it's worth I agree. And we're working on a replacement test that will scale up into higher levels of fluency than even the old HSK and provide better feedback and what people are getting wrong and why, rather than just silently testing and grading.

I'm expecting that we'll have that out later this fall. In the meantime, you can always make do with our unending HSK question page. Here is the link for the old intermediate test. To switch to the advanced or beginner levelsjust change the link text:

@walid.shaari,

You were probably doing things right (click-and-drag). Turns out we broke this with our site upgrade, although it is fixed now so holding down SHIFT and hitting the refresh key should get everything working.

Thanks for the ping and sorry for the trouble.

How do you get the right solution if you dont have a clue about the solution? Is it really just trial and error?

Additionally, when the answer is correct your browser should transform the options into a sentence.
