Credit by Examination

The University of Houston awards course credit based on scores earned on Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), College Level Examination Program (CLEP), SAT II Subject Tests, International Baccalaureate (IB) tests, Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Educational Support (DANTES), and UH departmental examinations.

Each course credit equivalency is evaluated by the appropriate department and college to determine whether the work and credit are of suitable content and rigor. The list of courses for which credit may be awarded, the minimum exam score requirements, the number of credit hours approved for test credit, and the policies associated with the awarding of test credit are approved by the Undergraduate Committee and published in the University of Houston Undergraduate Catalog. Students are encouraged to consult the UH Undergraduate Catalog to understand related policies.

Specific procedures for claiming credit by examination, including the testing schedule, eligibility requirements, test descriptions, sample questions, and test fee amounts, are updated and published on the UH Testing Services website.

Eligibility

  • Any current or former University of Houston student may attempt to earn UH credit based on performance on an appropriate examination for any required or elective undergraduate course for which UH offers credit.
  • Prospective students may take examinations to establish their eligibility to receive credit or placement however, credit is awarded only to officially enrolled students and former students.
  • Official test scores must be sent to the University of Houston by the last official class day in the semester the student is graduating in order to evaluate and post the course credit.
  • Students must meet University of Houston’s minimum approved passing scores, as well as any other specific departmental requirements, in order for examination credit to be used toward a degree program. 

Credit Hour Policies

  • There is not a limit to the number of hours that may be earned through the CBE program.
  • Credits earned by examination do not impact the Repeat rule.
  • Credit by examination that does not apply towards a student’s degree plan may make him or her ineligible for a tuition rebate. Review the Tuition Rebate guidelines for details.

Grades

A grade of CR (credit) will be assigned where applicable, will not carry grade points, will not be used to calculate a grade point average, cannot be translated into letter grades (e.g., A, B, C, D, or F), and will not replace any existing course grade earned at University of Houston, in high school, or at another college or university.

Degree Requirements

  • Credit earned by examination satisfies degree requirements in the same way as credit earned by passing a course, except that it does not count as credit earned in residence.
  • Students should confer with an academic advisor to determine whether credit earned by examination or by course is best for their degree objectives.
  • If a student takes a duplicate examination for the same subject content, credit will only be awarded once.

Credit by examination fees are used to support test administration, preparation and selection of examinations, scoring, analysis, and reporting. Examination fees are approved through the appropriate fee approval process at the university and collected by UH Testing Services or academic departments. 

Scholarship Eligibility

Credit earned by examination does not jeopardize eligibility for scholarships that require freshman standing


Vocational School

Do you wanna make more money? SURE WE ALL DO! That joke is dated as anything, but the idea of continuing education after leaving school is still a valid one. Even at the age of 42, Kasuga has plenty to gain from earning new certifications in various subjects. While they don't directly give him money, they do wonders for his Personality.

In Chapter 4, this begins as a Substory if you go to the marked location on Daikokuten St. east of Jinnai Station. You'll run into a guy named Ikari who will set you up at the school. From there, you'll take the first test: Sports Tier 2. That's right, instead of sitting through some long classes learning all the information, you'll jump straight to the final exam to prove your certification in the subject.

Controls

PlayStationXboxControl
Move cursor
Confirm selection
Use Divine Pencil (if purchased)
Use Hyper Focus (if purchased)

So here are some important notes:

  1. Every exam is five questions, multiple choice from a selection of four. The questions are pulled from a pool of ten questions for each subject.
  2. Every question gives you thirty seconds to answer, except for certain music questions which give you forty seconds.
  3. There is no way to pause the exam. Even the usual pause methods will not work. If, for example, you hit the PS button, you'll go to the PS screen, but time will still tick away in the game. Might be possible on PC, but I haven't verified.
  4. Every exam requires three out of five correct to pass. Success means you can retake the exam for free at any time, but you won't gain any Personality benefits. Failure means that the next time you take the exam, you'll have to pay the same money.
  5. Exams are not cheap. Between 30,000 and 100,000 yen apiece. You'll need well over a million yen to take all of them.
  6. If you need assistance, you can speak to Ikari in the lobby and he can offer you the following:
    1. Hyper Focus - For 100,000 yen, you'll be able to press the button once per exam to extend the time on the clock for one question by thirty seconds.
    2. Divine Pencil - For 500,000 yen, you'll be able to press the button once per exam to remove two wrong answers from a single question.
    1. For Mathematics Tier 1, half of the questions are to pick which of the four math equations gives a different answer. I've just numbered them 1-5 because there's no way to differentiate by question apart from the answers themselves.
    2. For Music Proficiency, there are three questions that are just listening to music for each. Fortunately, the answers are all different for each, so pick whichever of the three answers appears.
    3. For the final Ounabara Proficiency Exam, five questions are selected at random from ALL the previous questions. It's a good argument for doing all the exams in one sitting once you get enough money.

    Dutch Language Proficiency Tests to Study in Netherlands

    NT2 (Staatsexamen Nederlands als Tweede Taal)

    The State Exams Dutch as a Foreign Language, known as NT2, are proficiency exams meant specifically for non-native speakers who want to study or work in the Netherlands. The exam is of two types:

    • Program I - for people who want to study at the school level or do vocational work - B1
    • Program II - for people seeking higher education or an academic level job - B2

    The exam is in four parts - Reading, Writing, Listening, and Speaking. The fee is INR 4,047 for taking each part and INR 16,188 for the whole thing. The exams can only be taken by persons above the age of 17 and the centres are only five cities in the Netherlands, but the results have lifetime recognition worldwide.

    CNaVT (Certificaat Nederlands als Vreemde Taal)

    CNaVT or Certificate of Dutch as Foreign Language is recognized all over the world as proof of proficiency in Dutch. The exam is held once a year in May and costs around INR 6,739. It is available in different levels of competency, of which universities usually demand:

    The language proficiency levels are as per Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) standards. The exam consists of three sections, that is, Listening, Reading and Writing, and Speaking.


    Are there different exams for each level?

    Yes, there are different exams for each level.
    Have a look at the following Cambridge exam list:

    KET – A2 Elementary

    PET – B1 Pre-Intermediate/ Intermediate

    FCE – B2 Upper-Intermediate

    CAE – C1 Advanced

    CPE – C2 Proficiency

    They also off the KET, PET and FCE for schools exams which are designed for younger learners and teens.


    Tips for studying and resources

    Before leaping headfirst into the C2 Proficiency exam, there are a few ways you can practice doing the type of activity you need to do in Reading Part 6:

    • A great idea is to print out and cut up some sample Reading Part 6 exam questions. With the main text and paragraphs now separated, you can move everything around and physically put the different options into the various spaces. This will help you to visualise the text as a whole, and allow you to easily recognise the cohesive tricks that are used by the examiners. You can even do this with newspaper or online articles. It’s amazing how this visual aid really helps!
    • Start reading a variety of different text types, and get a feel for how they link together from one paragraph to another. Are there different styles used by academic writers or journalistic ones? Check out our advice about Extensive vs Intensive reading in our Guide to Reading Part 5 post for more information on this, and our Good Learner Guide for some extra motivation.

    Our in-house Exam preparation courses are designed to give you an opportunity to do just this under the guidance of our experienced teachers. These courses run either each semester or from October until June, depending on your needs. Have a look at our website for more information, or drop in and speak to our reception team.

    We hope this has helped you feel more comfortable about this daunting part of the exam! Keep a lookout for our next Passing C2 Proficiency Guide for Reading Part 7, coming soon.

    THE FIVE POINTS OF FELLOWSHIP

    During initiation into the Master Mason Degree, the candidate first receives the Real Grip of a Master Mason, along with instructions in how it is properly communicated, as he is "raised", or resurrected, at the conclusion of the Hiramic Legend.

While in this position, and at low breath, the Worshipful Master then whispers "Mah-Ha-Bone" into the ear of the candidate. "Mah-Ha-Bone" is the substitute for the Master's Word. It means, "What, the Builder!".
