Chinese oral exam grading
In order to assess how good your mastery of the Chinese language is, your examiner will usually grade your oral passage reading based on 2 things:
- the accuracy of what’s being read (内容) and its fluency
- how expressively you read the content (表达).
Once you are aware of the requirements of your oral exam in primary school, you can then spend the given 5 minutes of preparation time better. (Yes, you are no longer like the other primary school kids who waste their precious 5 minutes now.)
