Advanced Level Exams (A Levels)
Cutoff Scores, Placement Messages, and Credit Policies for 2016-2017
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 Illinois in Summer 2016, Fall 2016, or Spring 2017.
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.”
Questions? All A-Level credit is processed through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Please ask to speak to an international admissions specialist.
Please note that “AS Levels” are not the same as “A Levels.” Typically, the syllabus content for an AS Level course is half the content for an A Level course. We do not accept AS Level test scores for either course placement or course proficiency credit.
