Advanced Level Courses

Cambridge International and other UK exam bodies have announced the cancellation of their May/June 2020 exams, including A-Level.

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is committed to doing all we can to support our incoming students and ensure that they have a smooth transition to their higher education studies. Thus, based on the calculated grades that the examination bodies will provide in the absence of the exams, Illinois will continue to award academic credit for strong performance on the A-Levels. The credit policies that apply to 2020-2021 incoming students are shown below. As always, incoming students will also have the opportunity to take departmental proficiency exams.
