Thats kind of my point, if you can get to a point where you can pass the exams without actually attending the lectures then why is being taught/examined at all?
And what I meant by the examples of work was rather than a college project, simply demonstrate with other work that you know the material. Not directed at you precisely, but more at the colleges themselves. Why waste the students time with spurious classes? and why waste the college funds on an unnecessary lecturer?
I’m beginning to realise you’re a poor conversation partner for my point. I would have thought most people go to college to learn rather than get accreditation for knowledge they already have, 4 years seems like a big chunk to cut out of your life for just a piece of paper or a few letters after your name.
