We started unschooling in third grade.He went to college for a year and had no trouble.BUT he did get a tutor to help him with writing essays.Honestly he skated right through.He took a few hard classes and few easy ones, I thing 6 in all.And he did what most would refer to as "nothing" in his high school years(drawing, playing video games and looking stuff up).
I imagine different colleges/professors and courses all have different skill levels needed but the most important is essay writing.SOOOOO If I were to unschool a child I knew wanted to go to college I would inform him he would need to get a few essays under his belt or take a class.
Not all kids want to go to college or if they decide to later on its not so bad to get a few community college courses first to bone up on skills that are needed later.So he goes to college at 19 instead of 18.....AND tutors are always available to help.
Seriously though I think that a kid can learn the skills needed for college in less then a year if they are motivated.(even though it takes the public school 12).
