I have just realised that the HSK Level I PDF I made is based on the old HSK system. Does anyone know of comprehensive character lists and word lists for each level in the new HSK? They would preferably be in a copiable format - not protected PDFs.

Hi go_manly the new HSK lists are available in hardcopy only as far as I know. Recently 6 books were published by the Commercial Press, "Chinese Profeciency Test Syllabus Level 1/2/3/4/5/6" corresponding with the 6 new levels and each volume contains the new word lists. I looked online for digital version, but no succes.
Here is a link to the first book:

Thanks for that Chanelle.
Unfortunately, the Catch 22 is that I have to be able to read that website if I want to order the book. Is the book also written entirely in Chinese? Perhaps there is an English based website I could use?

I made an Excel file that I use to study from pdf files of all the vocab for levels 1-4 (new HSK levels) and am now working on adding all the vocab from level 5. But i don't know how to upload a file with this comment i´m afraid, so if anyone wants to tell me how to do this, i would be happy to upload it...

I entered the vocabulary lists for all six levels of the new HSK and put them on http://huamake.com/1to6Lists.htm The data is in UTF-8. So, it should be readily processable.
Thanks Mark, very useful.
There is an issue though with the vocabulary lists (not the character lists).
The vocabulary lists for levels 1 and 4 are garbled - characters are not visible.
The other levels are fine.
What does the 'x' refer to next to many vocabulary items?
I will fix the garbled lists. It appears that they are missing the couple of bytes that tell the Web server the data is UTF-8. If you manually set the character encoding in your browser to UTF-8, the contents will display properly.
The x means that the word does not occur in the next lower level. (e.g. something with an x in level 5 wasn't in level 4. So, it is a newly introduced word for that level.)
