    Have you talked with your school principal about this? As far as I know, there is no way. PLUS, you really don't want to do that. Trust me, you don't. You'd be the youngest kid in high school and subject to bullying. You wouldn't be able to keep up academically, and your life would be miserable.

    You can not, there are no "online" tests that allow you to skip grades. ** sorry if you were ready to jump grades you should even know that**.

    But the year end tests your school uses , CAT or others, how do you score on them. Are you making straight A's Have you studied not only your own work but the additional things the grades ahead of you teaches

    Where did you get the info that this is even an option? It isn't.

    The school that you're currently registered at is the only one that can determine what grade you should be in, based on your testing scores. They will not honor some online test. They have their own ways to determine if you should skip a grade or remain where you are. It's not something that's done lightly, so don't count on it.

    Whether this is true depends greatly on where the individual lives, and how big their school was. I knew someone in high school who was in my grade, but was two years younger (meaning he was skipped up two grades), and he had no problems.
    Not only that, but whether the person could keep up academically would depend on them, not how old they are. If they really are intelligent enough, and they apply themselves, they should have no problems.

    Have to point out that it says that Sho was home schooled. Now I'm even more torn about my son. Home schooling isn't sounding too bad. ;)

    Actually you can. All you have to do is talk with your principle about doubling one of the classes your good at , cause I'm about to do it. Like For Instance the subject I'm good at is math. Now I have to go to my principle and ask him if I can double math so then I take 8th grade math, and my regular math class... then you'll get a grade for both classes, and depending on how well you do on both s.o.l's you either fail or skip and go to high school...

    Talk to a guidance councelor or even one of the principals in your school. There would most likely be ways that they could help you find one, depending on where you live. If they can't find any; and they see that you are legible to take the test, they may give you the final exams from the school board early.

    None of that is 100% possible in happening; since it is rare to be skip grades, unless you failed a course and am aceing everything the second time around. You really need to be at the top of the game, to prove that what they are giving you is too easy.

    Best of luck :)
