A-Level Credit

The General Guidelines: 

  • Exams can be taken at either the Advanced (A-Level) or Advanced Subsidiary (A/S) level. Exams that can be considered for credit are Cambridge International AS/A-levels, Oxford International AQA AS/A-levels, Pearson Edexcel AS/A-levels, AQA AS/A-levels, and OCR AS/A-levels.
  • A level exams are scored A*-E (A* is the highest, and E is the minimum required performance). Undistributed credit will be awarded for grades of e/E and higher on qualifying Cambridge International Exams; direct course equivalencies, where available, require grades of b/B and higher. 
  • "1XXXX" transfer as undistributed credit, which means Purdue does not have an equivalent course or minimum grade requirements for direct course equivalency is not met. 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.
