Index of Secondary Credentials

The Index of Secondary Credentials (2010) is a handy companion to The New Country Index series and was compiled by IERF evaluators.

This resource for registrars, admissions officers, and counselors consists of three parts:

Part I is a listing of the names of secondary credentials from nearly 200 educational systems. The listing focuses on the “academic track” credentials which give access to postsecondary study in the host country.

Part II is a collection of sample documents from approximately 35 educational systems.

Part III is an article explaining the variations of the O and A Level qualifications found in the UK, many Commonwealth countries and international schools around the world. Click here to view the article.
