Are CLEP tests not plausible for science majors because of no lab?

<p>I LOVE chemistry and biology, but am an accounting major and lack the funds to risk taking chemistry courses if I fail out. </p>

<p>My question: The chemistry CLEP test is supposed to cover 1 year of college material, however if one is a science major how do you get the lab credit? Is it possible to JUST take the lab at a school while earning credit for the CLEP?</p>

<p>So, in theory, if one took the CLEP and passed it than later wanted to take organic chem, would one have to take entire 8 credits (general chem 1 + 2 at my college) because of the fricken lab problem?</p>

<p>You should check the policies of your school.</p>

<p>My college does not accept CLEP for credit at all. AP physics and chemistry scores do count towards our lab requirement because the college assumes that the course that prepared us for the AP exam had a lab component.</p>
