I recently sat a couple of HSK tests to ascertain the level of my Chinese language skills (I already have a BA in Chinese). I passed the Intermediate Level for Speaking & HSK Level 3 for reading, writing and listening:
HSK Speaking Test Intermediate Level:
Test takers who are able to pass the HSK Speaking Test (Intermediate Level) can understand intermediate Chinese and converse fluently with native Chinese speakers.
HSK Level 3 Reading, Writing and Listening:
Test takers can communicate in Chinese at a basic level in their daily, academic and professional lives. They can manage most communication in Chinese when travelling in China.
