the tests for these classes are proctored either by someone from a list they provide you with for your area or with someone who is approved to proctor these things.....i mean, your grade during a physical class is mostly from tests, so really it's the same thing....bgreet said:I don't understand how an online organic chem course can come anywhere near a physical class. It would be so easy to cheat, open the book and answer tests, have someone else take the test, etc. etc. the possibilities for cheating just seem crazy. Honestly I just can't see how a medical school could honestly compare an online class from a physical class you took. Sorry to be the downer of the bunch.
