Level 5 on the New HSK exam is intended to be equivalent to the intermediate level on the older HSK test. Both tests share the type of challenge presented in these fifteen sample HSK questions. Your challenge is to read a short passage with several missing words and pick the most appropriate word for each entry from several options provided. Your answers must complete the passage in the most sensible fashion possible.
Note: if you are serious about passing level five on the New HSK exam, we strongly recommend pushing yourself through our archive of test materials for the older intermediate HSK exam. Those intermediate level materials are more difficult than the test questions on the new HSK. If you can tackle those questions without any problem you will not have any difficulty with the new exam and may wish to consider pushing yourself to Level 6.
