Besides the chief proctor, in each exam room there were two Chinese language assistants serving as the exam invigilators to keep the order. Each assistant had received training before the exam and obtained the HSK Exam Proctor’s Certificate. Through the training, the assistants had a better grasp of the job as an HSK exam invigilator and got more familiar with the exam rooms and relevant equipment.

To further expand the scale of Chinese language proficiency tests, in addition to HSK, Chinese Oral Exam (HSKK), Youth Chinese Test (YCT) and Business Chinese Test (BCT), the YCT oral exam is now available. The Confucius Institute in Auckland has held many activities to share information about these tests, organized training for Chinese language assistants and local teachers, set up tutorial classes for test candidates and posted exam-related information on its website.
