Cambridge AICE Exams and College Credits

Both Cambridge AS and A Levels are considered college level courses of study, and students passing these examinations with a Cambridge grade of E or higher may receive college credit or advanced standing based on their scores in these examinations from universities throughout the United States and all public universities and colleges in Florida.  
Please note that each US university sets its own policy and students are advised to directly contact the admissions office at the university of interest to learn its credit by examination policy for GCE / International AS and A Levels which are also known as “Cambridge AICE” exams. College credit is typically awarded based on each subject and examination grade earned.

AICE Courses at RHS
The Cambridge AICE Diploma involves the selection of subjects from three curriculum areas – Mathematics and Science; Languages; Arts and Humanities from a wide range of subjects available at International Advanced Subsidiary (AS) Level and Advanced (A) Level.

An A Level would count as a double-credit qualification and an AS Level as a full (single) credit course within the Cambridge AICE Diploma award framework. To be considered for an AICE Diploma, a candidate must earn the equivalent of six credits by passing a combination of examinations at either the full (one credit) AS Level or double (two credits) A Level, with at least one course coming from each of the three curriculum areas. The examinations are administered in May/June sessions each year.  

  • Group 1 (Mathematics and Science): Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Management, Marine Science, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology, Thinking Skills
  • Group 2 (Languages):  English Language, Spanish Language
  • Group 3 (Arts and Humanities):   Business Studies, General Paper 8004, European and U.S. History, English Literature, Music, Psychology, Sociology, Thinking Skills, Travel and Tourism
  • Group 4: Global Perspectives (This course counts as one of the three flexible credits toward the AICE Diploma.)
