A Level Credit

Students Enrolled BEFORE Summer 2018

General guidelines:
  • exams can be taken at either the Advanced (A-Level). Exams that can be considered for credit are Cambridge International A-levels, Oxford International AQA A-levels, Pearson Edexcel A-levels, AQA A-levels, and OCR A-levels.
  • "1XXXX" transfer as undistributed credit, which means Purdue does not have an equivalent course. Such credit appears on a Purdue student record as credit hours within the respective subject area. You should consult with your Purdue academic advisor to determine how undistributed credit may be used to best meet curriculum requirements within your area of study.
  • exams are scored A – F (A, B, C, D, E, F, O; an “O” grade indicates a pass at Ordinary level); credit will be awarded for A – B; students with lower grades should be encouraged to test out
