And how is this fair to all of those who had to spend four additional years at unicersity before being handed a degree?

I'm not sure what you mean? Your degree certificate is a measure of academic achievement. They get one sooner because they have reached the required level sooner. It's not a penalty to you, it's a reward to them. It's probably also a reward to their parents if they were planning to pay for college.

You also got the whole University experience. For many, that will be as valuable as the academic side. If these kids enter as 3rd year students, it will be that much more difficult to join the social groups that most students form in their first six months of university.
