Advanced Level Exams (A Levels)
Proficiency credit is awarded on the basis of sufficiently high scores (grades C and above) on 11 Cambridge International A Level exams and is subject to change upon annual review. The policies below apply to all students entering Illinois in Summer 2012, Fall 2012, or Spring 2013 regardless of the examining board (e.g., Edexcel, Cambridge, Hong Kong) that awarded their Advanced Level Certificate.
If a student takes an equivalent course for part of the A Level at Illinois, only partial credit will be awarded for the A Level. All grades will be posted as "credit.” For subjects not listed in the table below, the Advanced Level course syllabus must be reviewed by the appropriate college or department to determine if there is an Urbana course equivalent.
New undergraduate students who have not already earned college-level credit in the subject are allowed to take a departmental proficiency exam in the sciences and /or humanities if they wish to try to proficiency out of an introductory course. Click here for details.
Questions? All A-Level credit is processed through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Please ask to speak to an international admissions specialist.
