Well, the thing is he has to take this class, most likely to complete his degree. The problem is that this year/semester, he was not accepted into it. So, he's been given permission to hang around in the back of said class and take notes, and not have to worry about assessments. So next semester, when he's doing it for reals, he'll already have a comprehensive set of notes to work with, and he will already know what the course has in store. Not what I'd do, but a good plan none the less.
