    Bad news....

    CLEP has undergone their ACE exam review and a total of 8 exams have been DOWNGRADED the recommended credit value.

    If you are not locked into/enrolled in a degree plan, the new credit amounts will apply.

    Analyzing and Interpreting Literature DOWNGRADED from 6 to 3 credits.
    College Composition Modular DOWNGRADED from 6 to 3 credits.

    All three foreign language exams remain at 6 credits for a level 1 pass but DOWNGRADED to 9 credits for level 2 passes (scores vary-see link).

    I have to agree with the downgrade for Analyzing and Interpreting Literature. It's a cakewalk exam.

    I'm fine with that, since I already passed and got my 6 credits years ago.

    Credits, in college-speak, are based on hours not level, so I think the change just reflects it changing from a 2-semester sequence to a 1-semester sequence. It's still lower level.
