Hey so I want to do biology A-level fast track with oxford college. My question is that is it good enough? At bare minimum I want a B so will they provide enough sources and tutor sessions for a year? Cheers

I think fast track is just marketing. Its up to you to do the fast tracking. At £350 it is cheaper than most online A levels.

Maybe you can find a student who has done one to gauge the level of tutor support, but £350 isnt really very much. Ab actual fast track at a cramming college would cost you several thousand £.

Its going to be a set of notes plus access to a tutor.

You also need to take care of the practical endorsement which is £800+ if you dont already have it.

Make your own mind up.

Alternative is just buy the textbooks and hire a tutor. I think there mat be some Biology sites as well where you can pay for tutor support.

Fair enough, do you know any students who have done these fast tracks to talk to?
