    Has anyone completed or is completing an access course with learndirect? I'm looking tondo the general health one but I'm unsure on what support you actually receive from them and how the work is?

    I've heard good and bad reports so any opinion would be hugely appreciated!

    Do universities accept the Learndirect access course? I'm thinking of doing one myself (access to medicine). I previously did mine at the Manchester College and I know most of my classmates got offers. Not too sure about learn direct. I called them this morning and they told me to first double check with the unis if they accept it.

    Well I checked with the ones I am applying to which are all the Leeds uni's (university of Leeds is Russell Group and they wern't phased) and Bradford and they say yes. As long as it's accredited I don't think many have any problem with it.

    Obviously check the ones you want to apply to though just to put your mind at rest.

    Thank you for your reply. Leeds gave me an offer but they wanted straight distinctions (that's 45 credits at distinction!), and I only got 15. I didn't get in. Also, can I retake gcse maths whilst doing the access course?

    Im doing Maths GCSE with my local collage one evening per week as well as the LD course. Im keeping up so far, as long as you stay focused on your end goal then it's deffinitely possible to juggle both.
