Passing with flying colors
Being a college student is hard. Not only are you faced with the pressure to get high grades, but your future depends on how well you do in class (not really). One time, a university held a sample course where students could follow and take actual tests. The test scores weren’t input into the system, but the students that took the course already learned everything they could about the subject.
In the following semester, the university opened up the same course. This time, it was no longer a sample. Whatever you got would end up on your transcript. Students from the sample course enrolled to this real class, skipped all of the meetings, and aced the final exam.
