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.
"Born on October 7th, 1931, Shahabuddeen graduated from the University of London with a Bachelor of Law Degree in 1953. In 1958, he earned his Master of Law, in 1970 he earned his Doctor of Philosophy and in 1986 the title of Doctor of Law."
Univ of London has always been a distance learning portal.
