    a poin in the past and the unreal future

    Suppose I don't have a lot of money and you didn't have them in the past, would this sentence be grammatically accaptable?

    "If I had money (refers to the unreal present), I would have been studying and would have graduated from Oxford." Is it possible to leave out "would have" and say "would have been studying and graduated"?

    Thanks. That's what I meant.
