If a university is supposed to be open everyone,
I'll get a look in if I graduated high-school no matter how good it is.
But the answer says that I won't a get a look in if my high school is not famous.
In my opinion, It must be an error.
Are you referring to get a look in
found in EnglishClub.com's idioms
The answer given on the above page isn't C, it's A.The university was supposed to be open to everyone, but you wouldn't get a look in unless you
a. went to a famous high school
b. went to a normal high school
c. hadn't been to high school
Perhaps what is confusing you is the word "supposed". Here it means:
- the university should have been open to everyone (but in fact it wasn't)
- they claimed that the university was open to everyone (but in fact it wasn't)
You need to study the word "supposed".
Why have you come today? You were supposed to come yesterday.
Politicians are supposed to be honest but in fact many are corrupt.
