Premed students should be aware that many medical schools do not recognize AP Calculus test scores as college unit credit. To fulfill your various major requirements and medical school entrance requirements, we have suggested the courses above for you. If your major allows the 30 Series, you may want to consider taking the 30 Series* instead of the 3 Series** to satisfy the math requirement for virtually any medical school to which you apply. Most medical schools that do not recognize AP units will accept PIC and Stats courses as a substitute for the year of math. It is the student’s responsibility to check with the individual schools for specific information.
*Courses in the 30 Series: 31A, 31B, 32A, 32B, 33A, 33B.
**Courses in the 3 Series: 3A, 3B, 3C.

Once you have credit for 31A/31B through AP credit, transfer credit, or by taking the course(s) at UCLA, you will not receive unit credit if you take 3A/3B.
