Maybe not for test, but lazy admission officers.

Entrance to colleges by lot, by payment, by what?

If, as I suspect, HS students know their ability and usefulness of college, so just make open. [1] Accommodate by funding doubling or tripling all colleges.

Personal history: Puzzled why admitted to candidacy immediately at Keele, until found recommended by the author of the texts they used.

[1] "California community colleges are required to admit any California resident possessing a high school diploma or the equivalent. Additionally, California community colleges may admit any nonresident possessing a high school diploma or the equivalent, or anyone (resident or nonresident) over the age of 18 without a high school diploma or the equivalent who, in the judgment of the board, is capable of profiting from the instruction offered.
Community colleges may admit minors who do not hold high school diplomas or the equivalent to credit courses as special part-time or special full-time students.

Most community colleges have established requirements for K-12th grade concurrently enrolled students.

Interested students should contact the college's admissions office.
