Irfan Ali was a brilliant student. He had no first degree and was able to compete against students who had a first degree in a Masters program which entails writing assignments and doing exams at a Masters level to get his Masters degree. An incredible performance.
Which rabbit hole you pull that from ?
Sahabudeen, our constitution design had no formal on site university training. So say his kid in a letter on SN. I know one person personally who similarly did not go to high school but went on to a PhD. I do not know how these systems work outside the US but I know Cambridge give Ramanujan a doctorate in Math but he was a genius in the area. Stanford did the same to Stephen Wolfram who never finished any school or so the story goes.
