Advanced Level Exams (A Levels)
What are A Levels?
Proficiency credit is awarded for most A-Level exams on the basis of sufficiently high scores (grades C and above) and is subject to change upon annual review. The policies below apply to all students entering the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Summer 2015, Fall 2015, or Spring 2016.
If a student takes an equivalent course for part of the A Level at Illinois, only partial credit will be awarded. All grades will be posted as "credit.”
New undergraduate students who have not already earned college-level credit in a particular subject are allowed to take the 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.
