Why is it a disadvantage for foreigners to take the HKSI LE securities exam?

September 3, 2021

 

The HKSI LE exam provides two languages, Chinese and English, and both are provided during the exam.

 

Some students who have taken the exams several times may pay attention to both the Chinese and English questions simultaneously, they will find that the content of the questions in Chinese or English exams is actually the same. Sometimes the topics are more difficult to understand in Chinese, and some topics are more difficult to understand in English; This is because there are a large number of questions in the HKSI exam question bank, which are created by more than one person. Sometimes the questions are translated into English from Chinese, and sometimes the questions are translated from English into Chinese, hence the writing style is different, but sometimes the translation may not be good. Therefore, there is an advantage to knowing both languages at the same time when taking the exam. 

Therefore, when choosing which language to partake in the exam in, you should consider which language you have higher proficiency in; because if you take the computer-based exam, you can switch languages to view the translation at any time during the exam. Therefore, if students can’t understand the question, they can try to change the language; in this way, taking the computer-based exam can allow students to understand better what the question is asking. As for the paper-based exam, you can read back and forth in both Chinese and English; Therefore, people who know Chinese and English should take the paper-based exam to get more prompts than those who only know Chinese or only English. Therefore, people who know Chinese and English should take the paper-based exam; in this way, they can get more hints than those who only know Chinese or only English.

 

For some students who are concerned that they may use more English in their work in the future, despite that their mother tongue is Chinese. In this case, we still recommend students to take the exam in Chinese. If a candidate’s English proficiency is not high, but forced to use English to partake in the exam, you may lose marks in the exam due to misunderstanding or not understanding English tenses, word meanings (especially ambiguous words), sentence patterns, etc. Comprehension, understanding, and digesting the content of the exam are the most important part of the exam. As for English vocabulary, it is not too late to study until you finish the exam.
