Just some thoughts I would like some inputs on if you have time~~~
(Background informations, you don't gotta read unless you're interest in details)I want to live in work in Korea, but to get the work visa I need a bachelor degree ~~ (Or get married, but who am I kidding no one will ever marry me ha ha ㅠuㅠ )
However, my school performance was not very great. I do not have problems with taking in information and studying, (and even tho I'm used to typing broken English, I was tested to have a very high IQ... haha maybe you don't believe me but it's true...) But I lost my motivation because I was very depressed. And so my grades and attendance were not very good and I left for a while.
And..... I had saved up moneys to try again, but my mother stole this money so I couldn't pay to go again... and I don't have anything special about me to earn scholarship or grant.
And so I dropped out of university. And now I am older and I feel like I ruined my chances forever for higher education and for my whole life. And I can see my life in downward spiral. Really, I feel like I'm very too old for a second chance.
Staying in Korea give me some hope because I could even afford rent and food there very easy. And my feel is very happy there.
But even when I had 2 jobs here I still can't pay rent and food, so I rely on the generosity of my father letting me stay with him, which is very soon run out...... and I don't have another family I can depend on to help me, nobody is very interest in me...
So I was reading online the fast way to earn my bachelor's degree. And I saw about earning credits by exam.
Some schools will let you earn a degree based on only testing.
Since I'm not problem with taking in and retaining information, I thought this is a possibility. It cost 80-100 usd each test. But you can take the exams, transfer your credits to a school and earn a bachelor's as soon as 1 year. (But probably for me is 2 since I'm working at the same time)
So finally I ask my question~~~
Have you tested out of a class or try to? (like CLEP test)
How difficult did you find the test?
Do you think possible~~? Should I try it or give up~~? ㅠㅠ
And if you have any other advices let me know~~
Thanks for reading this silly thing~~
