    How does Oxford view A-levels taken via distance learning? Favorably or unfavorably? I am looking at doing both a French and History A-level from NEC, but I am a bit worried that neither course requires any coursework to be handed in. Here's what NEC has to say about each subject:

    For French: No coursework. 1 spoken (15mins) and 1 written exam for both the AS and A2.

    For History: Coursework - 2 written exams for the AS, each 1hr20mins and worth 60 marks. 1 written exam (2hrs) and 1 coursework task for the A2.

    When it comes time to send samples of my coursework in, I wouldn't have any from my A-levels! :eek3:

    Thanks!

    I don't think they'll have a problem with it per se, but as you say, not having any samples of coursework from your A-levels could be a bit of a disadvantage...:dontknow:

    That's exactly what I do, but in a school environment.

    I think you've misinterpreted the word "coursework". I think you will have to write essays for them - http://www.nec.ac.uk/courses/cis?cou...d=81&print_p=1 talks about allowing extra time for the 7 assingments. Yes none of these will count towards your final grade, but this doesn't matter for Oxford, you'll still have essays to send in as examples of written work.
