    Default Analyzing and Interpreting Literature no essay + CCAF

    Do I need to take the essay portion to complete humanities requirements for CCAF?

    Collegeboard.com says that the essay is only graded by the college instution. Any input?

    Ask your bases college office? I've never heard of a college requiring the essay portion... when I took it they didn't even ask if I wanted to take the essay part.

    Default essay

    The test itself does not require an essay. However, the school that you are transferring the credits to may require an essay to validate your writing skills. This is completely based on the school. You should speak with an academic councilor from your school to find out for certain.

    As the title suggests; however, if you plan on going further than your CCAF, it would be wise to check with the institution you plan on transferring your CCAF credits over to. This is important because THAT college might require an essay. As a CCAF Degree Holder, I can affirm the essay is NOT required!

    I'm just a tuition payment away from my LS Degree at TESC as well. TESC accepted my A&IL credits without an essay. I'm sure you're good to go without an essay as well!! Good questions, keep them coming!

    Default Passed

    Passed with a 63. The stories/poem were a bit longer than I expected, but I had about 15 minutes to look over my marked answers.

    I looked over literary terms and took two petersons practice test (Which I scored 50 and 60 on). In my opinion, the difficulty was about the same with the exception of longer stories.

    Be sure to read the stories without overthinking it.

    This is a six credit test that counts for humanities, does anyone know if the extra credits "spill over" onto electives for the CCAF?

    I'd think so, but please let us know for sure once your AFVEC updates because I'm sure people will want to know the for sure answer to this in the future. Congratulations!!
