I’m planning on finally going back to school in the near future, and need some help figuring out how to do it. I didn’t get the best grades in high school and that prevents me from getting into any of the decent programs at my local university. I live in Canada so community college isn’t really an option. My current plan is to do independent study and either take AP tests or do course challenges to prove my knowledge. Further complicating things is that I have a toddler and a baby on the way and I work part time. Any advice on how I can get ahead and make something of myself? Right now I stay up late watching Yale lectures and working on a psychology course through saylor.org. I’ve also used coursera and khan academy. I’m kind of cobbling my way through. Can I even take AP tests if I’m not a high school student? Does anyone have any advice for me?
