The General Certificate of Education/General Certificate of Secondary Education (or their equivalents) with standing in five appropriate subjects is required, of which at least two must be at the Advanced/A2 Level. The same subject cannot be counted at both levels. An Advanced Subsidiary subject will be considered in lieu of an Ordinary/GCSE level subject. Two Advanced Subsidiary subjects will be considered in lieu of one Advanced level provided they do not duplicate subject matter of the Advanced or Ordinary/GCSE levels. Grades of D and E at the Ordinary and Advanced Subsidiary levels and 7, 8 and 9 on School Certificates are not acceptable.
Note: High School applicants who are completing Alberta Grade XII subjects in lieu of Advanced Level and Ordinary Level subject requirements are required to present final high school transcripts from Alberta Education (or equivalent from other provinces) with required standing in five appropriate subjects.
The University of Calgary awards advanced credit for specific Advanced Level subjects. Students should refer to the Alternatives to Regular Course Credit section of this Calendar for details.
