AS and A-Level Notes

  • Biology: Credit for BIO 107 is awarded with a qualifying grade. Students who plan to continue in the sciences, pre-med, and/or pre-health may receive credit for one of two introductory lab course requirements (BIO 111/113 or BIO 112/114) in place of the exploratory lab course (BIO 107) by consulting the Biology chair.
  • Physics: Credit for 118 is forfeited by a student who elects to take PHY 120 or 130; credit for 119 is forfeited by a student who elects to take PHY 220 or 230. PHY 118 and 119 do not satisfy the Natural Science requirement—unless evidence of significant lab work for either course is presented to the Physics chair, in which case the course will satisfy the natural science requirement.
  • A-Level Music: Additional credit for MUS 155 with components 3 and 5, MUS 261 with components 4 and 5, and MUS 155 or MUS 261 with components 3 and 4
  • Computer Science: Same recommendation for 9608 and 9618 versions
  • Courses Not Accepted: Business, Design and Technology, Design and Textiles, Food Studies, Information Technology, Law, Physical Education, Travel and Tourism, or English General Paper
