Students Enrolled BEFORE Summer 2018

General guidelines:
  • exams can be taken at either the Subsidiary Level (SL) or at the Higher Level (HL)

  • credit normally will be awarded for HL subjects only, but there are a few exceptions

  • "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 7 – 1 (7 = A+, 6 = A, 5 = B, 4 = C); credit will be awarded for 7 – 5; students with lower grades should be encouraged to test out
