AP English exam scores and how they are applied
Many of the UCs require a score of 4 on either the AP English Language or English Lit exam to fulfill the first English course. However, there is a notable exception. If you are completing IGETC, a score of 3 in either exam will fulfill the first English. Thus, if you get IGETC Certification (meaning completion by end of final spring term), the UCs will honor the score of 3 as fulfilling the first English and it will override any other rule in place. But this only applies if you are doing IGETC.
