Cutoff Scores, Placement Messages, and Credit Policies for 2015-2016

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.”

Questions? All A-Level credit is processed through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Please ask to speak to an international admissions specialist.
