Has anyone used the distance learning centre before? What are your opinions?
I’m starting the science access course on Monday. Has anyone here completed this? If so, how did you find it?

The chemistry modules looked horrible I opted for the option of doing biology and physics without the Chem, because luckily my course only needs the biology modules!

I spoke to my tutor for the first time yesterday and she was really helpful! Before I started the course all the reviews said that They didn’t receive help and found it hard to contact their tutor but I can’t say it seems like that’s going to be a problem!

That’s great! I spoke to my tutor on Skype for the first time yesterday too - she seems lovely. She’s also really responsive to emails, so I can’t see it being an issue either (which I was worried about after reading reviews)
My friend, however, has also started the course and is having some problems with her tutor. Maybe we got lucky!

Maybe we did! Who have you got? I’ve got Jo.
From what I’ve worked out it seems like your tutor changes from module to module depending on their specialism in the subject area eg one for bio, one for Chem etc 😩

Mines called Janet. I asked her regarding tutors and she is mine for biology and chemistry, then I’ll get a new one for physics, then get a psychology tutor for the biology practical

I feel like they’ve probably responded to the criticism they’ve been getting!
Jo doesn’t schedule regular tutorials but if I email and say I need one she’ll get straight back to me with a time!

no because the tutor took forever to mark and were horrible with giving passwords I never knew what level I was working at since marking took too long and so when moving onto the next assignment I had no indication of where or what lines to begin with! very little guidance on graded assignments. I wish I could tell all students to stay clear , but let's hope they're better now. Although only just finished mine.

I didnt have Sarah - why is she not good either? Mine was just too lazy and whenever I asked for a tutorial she's accuse me of asking too much and always told me that my overall grade is affected by asking too much questions.Not the ideal place to study if you want to get the best grades and better yourself I just wish I used my initiative earlier on but I thought all the tutors were like that (but thats not the case I don't think).
