HSK 6 character list

HSK (Hànyǔ Shuǐpíng Kǎoshì; 汉语水平考试), translated as Chinese Proficiency Test or Chinese Standard Exam, is China's standardized exam for non-native speakers that tests and rates Chinese language proficiency.

The test consists of 6 levels and list of words that need to be known is provided for each level. No character lists are provided separately, therefore the characters presented on this page were derived from these word lists.

Show: all HSK characters | HSK 1 | HSK 2 | HSK 3 | HSK 4 | HSK 5 | HSK 6

Please be aware that the character lists for HSK levels provided on this website are not cumulative (contain only new characters). Therefore if you for example prepare for HSK level 4, you should not only learn the characters for level 4, but also for previous levels (1, 2 and 3).
