“A” Level Exams and International Baccalaureate

Credit Information

“A” Level Exams will be awarded two semesters credit (either 3 or 4 hours per semester) for each subject passed with grades of A through E.  “AS” Level Exams will be awarded one semester of credit (3 or 4 hours) for each subject passed with grades of A through E.  Note: A different letter marking scale is used and marks of D and E are acceptable passing grades (a grade of E is equivalent to our grade of C).  No credit is awarded for “General Paper”.  The specific credit awarded will be determined by the academic division.
