Up to 30 credits of advanced standing may be awarded to students who have completed Advanced Placement Examinations (AP), Advanced Subsidiary (AS), Advanced Levels (AL), and International Baccalaureate (IB), as well as the European Baccalaureate and French Baccalaureate.
Students transferring from other universities or colleges may be awarded advanced standing credits for their course work.
Now tell us about any advanced standing you will have. Failure to tell us that you have written any of the exams listed below is an offense under Article 18 of McGill's Code of Student Discipline found in the Handbook on Student Rights and Responsibilities (the "Green Book") and could result in the cancellation of your admission to the university.
If you do not have advanced standing, but feel that you should be exempt from some of our basic science courses, you may write Placement Examinations. These are available to you only at the very beginning of your first year. You will not be permitted to write them at any later time. No exceptions are made.
