Well, I did all right on my placement test
Elementary Algebra: 115/120
College Level Math: 75.5/120
Reading Comprehension: 117/120
Sentence Structure: 110/120
I still have to take Comp 101 because it's just flat out required, so I'm not sure what the point was of the ENG portion of the placement test except to make sure I can speak English at all, which could have been handled more simply.
There was a FUCKTON of factoring, which I mostly was able to handle thanks to cramming today. College Level math included a ton of trig which I flat out couldn't remember.

Don't bother taking Comp 101. Take the CLEP test for a fraction of the cost. You're a good enough writer that you should pass it easily.
Good stuff cheap!

I added some code recently which filters out all invalid utf-8 sequences.

But he's telling you that it's filtering out a valid one. Your code has a bug.

Sounds pretty good. Grats.
If they accept AP-testing (and if adults can even take those) then the English AP may be another route to get credit for it. I had it when I went, which was great because from what I heard COMP-101 was an assload of writing essays and research papers. Fiction would have been tolerable, maybe even enjoyable...
