    Hey. At present I am studying health sciences with the Open University but I have always wanted to study medicine. Because I have attempted a degree before and failed, I can not go down the graduate entry with this degree.

    I will now need to go down the mature students route and was wondering if anyone has done A Levels distance learning and are they worth it and which are the best value?

    I haven't used them yet - but am looking myself. And some of the ones I can suggest are:
    http://www.ukdlp-distance-learning.com/
    www.openstudycollege.com
    https://www.nec.ac.uk/

    What subjects are you considering, as you will have to undertake the practical element if you are thinking of sciences - which I assume you are. In that case, you need to be able to find suitable exam centres to enter as a private candidate and somewhere you can underake controlled assessments or coursework, which may incur additional fees (as will the admin for exams).

    I hope this helps - let me know how you get on
