A-Level Examinations

Students earning high marks on A-level (advanced) examinations can request credit by consulting the appropriate department advisor. The amount of credit awarded is determined by the department, normally on a Course Approval Form or in a memo to the College Center for Advising Services. Students with A-Level examination scores are subject to the credit limits (16 credits) outlined in the policy described on the credit and placement by examination page.

O-level (ordinary) courses or subsidiary examinations are not comparable to college courses and no credit can be awarded.


The original University of Cambridge GCE transcript and a statement of results should both be provided to Academic Records in Lattimore 312. Academic Records will scan a copy of the student's documentation and place it in the student's file. The original documents will then be returned to the student.

Students with questions should consult the College Center for Advising Services.
