* Reporting time for Putonghua Paper 1 is 2:15 pm. Candidates should arrive at 2:15 pm for the assessment.

** The Putonghua and English Language speaking assessments will be video-recorded to facilitate the processing of irregularities during the assessment.

*** The Classroom Language Assessment (CLA) paper takes the form of lesson observation lasting for a single period by one assessor.  Candidates are assessed once with about 40% of them receiving a second assessment visit by another assessor in order to verify the actual attainment of various CLA standards.  For candidates selected for the second assessment visit, their assessment is considered complete only when both visits are completed.  At the beginning of the assessment period (tentatively from 30 October 2023 (Monday) to 15 December 2023 (Friday)), a number of candidates will receive a paired visit in which two assessors observe the same period.

The date of the CLA will be assigned by the assessors.  Candidates will receive notification at least five days before the assessment.  The first lesson observation is expected to complete by mid-February 2024.  If the candidates do not receive notification for the first lesson observation by 19 January 2024 (Friday), they should contact the Language Teacher Qualifications Team of the EDB at 2892 5783 before 5:00 pm on 22 January 2024 (Monday).
