Challenging a Regents Exam?

Dear Colleagues,

Has anyone ever had a student want to challenge a Regents exam? That is, take the Regents in a course even though he didn't sit for the course, as well as earn credit for that course? The Part 100 regs say a kid can do it, but they would have to first complete a project in that course so that they can earn course credit. If so, does anyone have example projects that can be offered for kids who want to challenge the Geometry and Alg 2/ Trig Regents?

The reason I ask is because I have a freshman who moved here fom another country who wants to skip A2/T and Pre-Calc and take AP Calculus. He said he already learned all the material in his native country and the Geometry Honors course he is in now is too easy for him as well.

Thanks for your input.
