    一声:阴平
    2声:阳平
    3声:上声
    4声: 去声。

    【词目】上声
    【拼音】shàngshēng 又 shǎngshēng
    【解释】①古汉语四声的第二声。②普通话字调的第三声。

    so,i think shang3 sheng1 would be better

    Both are correct, but shàngshēng is more common.

    The most authoritative dictionary on modern Chinese, 《现代汉语词典》, says

    上声
    shàngshēng
    ,又shǎngshēng
    ①古汉语四声的第二声。
    ②普通话字调的第三声。‖参看〖四声〗。

    shàngshēng
    ,又shǎngshēng
    This means the former is more common.

    shang3 sheng1
    这个不是查字典就可以看到么。

    shǎng-shēng
