Students in grades 7 through 12 may take the credit exam.
High school students can satisfy the world language requirements for an Advanced High School Diploma in one of the two ways:
1. Earn 3 credits in Tamil Language Credit Exam or
2. Earn 2 credits in Tamil Language Credit Exam and 2 credits in an additional World language.
Proficiency in a World Language is evidence of a student’s readiness for career and college, and for engagement as a global citizen.
Students can also get Virginia Seal of Bi-Literacy on their high school diploma.
Our volunteer teachers prepare the students to achieve high school credit through regular class work during school year and special classes during summer.
Students must meet with their school counselors to register. Registration opens during September and closes around October. Exam schedule and venue are communicated by the counselors.
Students must be able to read and comprehend exam instructions and writing prompts in the exam language. They must be able to write two well-developed essays in the exam language, each consisting of at least three paragraphs, using complete sentences in cohesive paragraphs on a variety of topics and personal experiences.
FCPS Scoring Rubrics
A student may take the exam twice between grades 7 through 12. In other words, students who are not successful the first time may try once more.
If you have more questions about the exam, speak to your school counselor.
