    Hi - Mods, please move this if it's not in the correct section.

    I'm looking to take four Science A-Level subjects online & as I'll be paying for them I need to make sure I choose a site that I can 100% trust.

    Please can anyone give me recommendations to reputable sites.

    Thank you for any advice or suggestions,
    Ella

    Are you absolutely sure about that? I thought you could do the practical elements of the course in a centre?

    Don't use ICS. Whilst I haven't studied with them myself I have talked to many private candidates who used them and most of them were not at all impressed.

    If you are enrolling then think very hard about when you are planning to finish the course and whether you will finish by Summer 2016 or you need to enrol on the new AS courses for Phys, Chem and Bio. (not sure what your fourth 'Science' is but you'd have another 2 years to finish Maths.

    How does the assessment/practical happen? do u go to the centre and do it then or do the centre give u the time when u will do the practicals and again how sure are u that they'll have all the required equipment it is just a centre after all ... most centre I've checked said No they only do papers not practicals,why not go to a normal college and start in spetember and get all these problems sorted it out for by the institution... is being a student distasteful to you? to the extent that u're willing to pay 1000's of £ rather then for free at a college

    You have 2 issues to be considered - buying a course ( if you actually need one at all) and entering the exams. What many of the distance learning providers fail to tell you is that you have to find an exam centre - and that for any practical subject you may end up having to travel a long.... way and pay £100s for each practical - so don't buy a course until you have got a definite exam centre lined up
