    Test Out of Science Classes

    Is their any school like the one below that allows you to test out of science
    classes and then they issue you a transcript credit that shows an official completion of the subject class?

    I need to get credit for
    Chemistry 1
    Biology 1
    Physics 1
    Physiology
    Anatomy

    Let me know how I can do this. I rather not take the classes I will if I have to but If I can take a test and get credit for a 3 unit course, I can save alot of time!

    Thank you!

    Yes and no. Yes, there are test out options for those classes. No, you can't launder credits. (put them on one transcript and get it to show up as a class- it's still a test out and they'll need the originating credit transcript from CLEP)
    I'd need more info to help you further. Where are you a student now, is this for a science/health major, do you need labs, and do you need graded credit vs pass/fail? Additionally, when you use the number after the name "chemistry 1" that implies you might be taking a chemistry 2? Is that the plan? If so, you'll add another layer of mud because your college and possibly the science department will make that call. If you're hoping for premed, some MD schools have written policy against a sequence interruption. Last question, what is your school's official written policy on test out credit? So, can you provide more information about your situation? Too many variables.

    The placebo effect should be kicking in any minute.
