    What does that mean?
    Advanced Standing applies to US and Canadian universities. In the US, students don't have to take A-levels, however, their A-level equivalent (called Advanced Placement exams) can be taken as optional courses during highschool junior/senior years. Why would anybody want to do this if it weren't compulsary? Because it gives them Advanced Standing -- basically, college credits which may exempt them from some of the general ed. requirements at university (eg compulsary composition/writing, or foreign language requirements would be fulfilled if you already had APs in them at a certain level (graded 1-5, 5 being the best)). At some US universities A-levels might give you advanced standing, the number of college credits each A-level grade might earn you varies from college to college.
