Two students of the Roots International School System, Metropolitan G-8 Campus, secured full marks in the Chinese language proficiency test.
The Chinese Proficiency Test (YCT) is a standardized international Chinese language test to measure the ability of non-native Chinese speakers. YCT consists of four levels. This year, a large number of students appeared in YCT and HSK and recorded really well.
Roots International Schools CEO Chaudhry Walid Mushtaq esteemed the efforts of the students who appeared in YCT and said that students are taking Chinese language in different campuses. We engage our students in performing arts, rhythmic expressions of China and various activities so that they have a better knowledge of the Chinese culture, he added.
HSK is divided into three categories: beginning level (HSK Basic), elementary to intermediate level (HSK Elementary-Intermediate), and advanced level (HSK Advanced).
HSK tests organized regularly both at national test centers and at foreign test centers each year. HSK Certificates are issued to those who have obtained the required scores. More than 140 HSK centers have been set up, and 300,000 people have taken the test.
Chinese proficiency certificates are issued by the State Committee for the Chinese Proficiency Test of China in accordance with HSK scores and are recognized as authentic Chinese proficiency certificates in many countries all over the world. They are a reference standard used by different types of enterprises, organizations and educational institutions in recruiting people for jobs for which Chinese language skills are necessary.
Chinese proficiency certificates are also evidence of the Chinese language skills of foreign students applying for enrollment into different types of schools at various levels in China. The National Office for Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language offers scholarships for studying in China to foreign candidates with excellent HSK scores.
