Proficiency credit is awarded for most A-Level exams on the basis of sufficiently high scores (grades of C and higher) 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 2020, Fall 2020, or Spring 2021.
If you take an equivalent course for part of the A-Level at Illinois, only partial credit will be awarded. All grades are 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 if they wish to try to proficiency out of an introductory course.
Questions? Contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. All A-Level credit is processed through Undergrad Admissions. Be sure to ask to speak to an international admissions specialist.
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. Illinois does not accept AS-Level test scores for either course placement or course proficiency credit.
