This is the vocabulary list for New HSK 9! Is there any HSK 9? Yes, the initial Classification from 1992 to 2009. There are total 8000 vocabularies. New HSK (after 2009) which cut the vocabulary to 5000, just want to set a lower passing bar for students who take Chinese as second language or foreign language. There are around 100,000 vocabularies in comprehensive Chinese dictionary. The new HSK 5000 vocabularies only account for 5%, which is far from enough for students to continue their college in China taught in Chinese. For advance level oversea Chinese examinations like IB Chinese_A_Language_and_literature_HL, IB Chinese_A_Literature_HL, IB Chinese_B_HL, SAT Chinese, AP Chinese, Edexcel A LEVEL Chinese 9CN0-01,02,03 (OLD 6CN0), Edexcel AS Chinese 8CN0-01,02,03 (OLD 6CN0), CIE IGCSE First Language (0509), CIE IGCSE Second Language (0523), the vocabulary involved are far more than HSK 5000 vocabularies.
