How is CLEP?

Postby miso » Fri Jan 17, 2014 1:10 am

I am considering CLEP but will it be too difficult for me? It is compulsory to take H2 CLL + H1 General Studies in Chinese/H1 or H2 China Studies in Chinese/H3 CLL right?

What do you guys think? Should I take CLEP to enter a better JC or would I be better off without having to take Chinese at all? I got a C6 for Higher Chinese and A2 for Chinese in Os.

I would appreciate if anyone can share their/their children's experience with CLEP. :smile:

Don't take clep for the sake of entering a good jc. Clep requires a good command of the language. If there is no interest, you'll be heading for much harder times ahead.

To be eligible for CLEP, you must have good overall O level results plus:

- Grade B3 in HCL or
- Grade B4 in HCL and B3 in Literature in Chinese (Full and Elective) or
- Grade A2 in CL

Given that your HCL grade is C6, I think it'll be a struggle for you taking CLEP and the corresponding compulsory subjects that go along with it. Don't take up CLEP just for the sake of entering a JC. It's not worth it.
