After nearly a year of careful preparation, the University of Jinan held its first examination in HSK band 4 and band 5 and HSKK intermediate on May 16 this year.

HSK consists of two parts, the written and the oral, which are independent of each other. The written tests include HSK (band-1), HSK (band-2), HSK (band-3), HSK (band-4), HSK (band-5) and HSK (bad-6); The oral test mainly examines the students' verbal skills, including HSKK (junior), HSKK (intermediate) and HSKK (advanced), and the examination uses the recording form.
