Students Entering the Bachelor of Science Program with Credit for Secondary School Calculus

The UBC Okanagan campus offers a three-hour calculus examination to all B.Sc. students who have completed or are currently registered in a calculus course in secondary school. Students who pass the examination can obtain credit for MATH 100. Bachelor of Science students claiming credit at the UBC Okanagan campus will have their examination score shown on their transcript as their grade in MATH 100. Only one attempt is permitted. Students who have already started college or university may not participate. Students already eligible for transfer credit because of high AP or IB scores retain their eligibility regardless of their examination score.

Applications to write the MATH 100 examination must be made to the Head of the Department of Computer Science, Math, Physics and Statistics by March 15 for the April examination date, and by November 15 for the December examination date. A non-refundable fee, equal to the cost of a 1-credit-hour course, must be included with the application.

The examination is scheduled to be taken concurrently with students registered in MATH 100 at the UBC Okanagan campus. Further inquiries about writing the MATH 100 examination should be directed to the academic department head.
