    I've had to take a year out of college, but want to get going with some of my exams so that i get some of them out of the way.

    I have been looking at distance learning course online and wondered which ones people have found the best and most useful...

    I'd quite like to be able to do my exams in summer 2016, and am interested in doing maths (I've already done the equivalent of 2/3 of the AS level in secondary school)

    Thank you :^_^:

    Why don't you just self-study it?

    i hadn't considered that... I think it would be good to have access to a tutor too though

    Have you tried UK Open College? I'm taking AS/A2 chemistry, physics and bio there. It's not the greatest; it's basically self-study and you can ask questions from your tutors when needed. If you need someone to teach you things because you would struggle handling it yourself, it probably isn't for you. But I'm finding it pretty good. It just helps me keep track of things. I mainly started it because I needed predicted grades/references to apply for 2016 entry in the UK, and I wouldn't be able to do that if I were to just apply to write the exams and self-stufy till then.

    They aren't the most advanced; there are few simple typos and errors in their assessments, so watch out for those. But the main thing I like is that my Chem/Bio tutor (same guy) is extremely helpful with questions. And I did an assignment and sent it to him on a Sunday afternoon and he marked it and gave me feedback two hours later! So he's always ready to answer things day and night.

    Mainly, it depends on how you think you would fare with a majority of self-study involved, since that's what online distance learning is going to be about mostly.

    Hope that helps!
