Confucius Institute at Latvia University successfully held the online HSK examination in 2021

On Saturday, March 13, 2021, the first annual Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK) in Latvia officially started. Affected by the continuous impact of the epidemic, almost all Chinese courses in Latvia have been changed to online teaching, and HSK is no exception. This Chinese Proficiency Test is still an online test. The spring in North Country seems to come lately , but the enthusiasm of Latvian Chinese learners has not diminished, and the number of applicants for this Chinese proficiency test continues to rise. Registration for this HSK will start on February 5, 2021. By March 3, 2021, a total of 27 applicants have registered, 11 more than the last HSK test in 2020. Among them, there are six in Level one , five in Level two, seven in Level three, six in Level four, one in Level five and two in Level six. In the process of HSK, we adhere to the principle of fairness, fairness and openness. We use zoom conference software to record the whole process, and HSK special test software for students to answer questions. During the use of HSK, we can capture the pictures in real time and track the dynamics of the candidates.

The invigilators of this online Chinese Proficiency Test are more cautious and calm on the basis of drawing on previous experience and deficiencies. In order to ensure that candidates can successfully complete the test, the invigilators can calmly complete the invigilation work. At 9:00 p.m. on March 6th, 2021 Beijing time, Professor Shang Quanyu, Director of the Chinese side of the Confucius Institute at Latvia University , actively organized Latvian volunteer Chinese teachers to conduct pre-test training and test arrangement. In addition, zoom conference software and HSK test software were used to conduct mock exams, and personal problems that should be paid attention to were timely reminded after the end of the simulation.

At 14:00 on Saturday, March 13, 2021, all invigilators and candidates of HSK2, 4 and 6 will enter zoom conference software. With the help of the invigilator, each examinee logged into the test system and check whether there is any problem with the equipment used in the examination. Then the invigilator read the instructions and check the the examinees’ information.. At 15:00 PM,  HSK2, 4 and 6 started on time . At 18:30 p.m. on the same day, all invigilators and examinees of HSK1, 3 and 5 entered zoom conference software for pre-test inspection. At 19:30 PM Beijing time, the HSK1, 3 and 5 exams also started smoothly. During the exam, the volunteers tried their best to solve the problems in the system and procedures.

With the technical support of Confucius Institute teachers and CTI International, the online Chinese proficiency test was successfully completed. The success of the test would not have been possible without the efforts of the volunteers of Chinese teachers of the Confucius Institute in Latvia, as well as the support of all Chinese learners. In the future, the Confucius Institute at the University of Latvia will continue to strengthen the publicity of the test. We hope that more and more Chinese enthusiasts will participate in the HSK examination in the future. Here we also sincerely wish every examinee would obtain a satisfy result !
