BCT (Business Chinese Test)

The BCT assesses the candidate’s ability to use the Chinese language in real business or common working environments.

We offer the written test at our exam centre. There are two levels available: BCT A (lower level) and BCT B (higher level).

Online BCT resources are currently limited, so don’t be surprised if you can’t find very much when you search. We have resources and teaching materials in our resource library.

Exam dates for 2020 will be released in late 2019.
