Credit for other AS- and A-Level exams not listed above may also be possible.

In order to be eligible for college credit, students must have their exam results sent directly to UMSL by the examining body (AQA, Edexcel, Cambridge, OCR, etc.).

If a student has completed both the AS-Level and the A-Level of a particular subject, credit can only be awarded for the A-Level as noted above.
