What is the "Sophomore Exploratory Option"? 

Even the most focused students might not come to MIT knowing exactly what that they want to do with their degree. MIT provides sophomores with the opportunity to explore a little, and find what really interests them by taking one subject per term where the grade can be removed. For more details about the process, you may visit the Registrars' web site: http://web.mit.edu/registrar/reg/grades/exploratory.html.
