    Hiya folks,

    I'm thinking about taking a couple of A-Levels that my Sixth Form didn't provide. Consequently I'll have to take the home learning route instead.

    I've had a quick look around the site and couldn't find some information quick at hand. Therefore, I'm just asking if anyone has particular knowledge of these online services (i.e., ICS, OOL, Distance Learning Centre, etc) and their experiences using them?

    Any information about the kind of fees needed for exam entry, in addition to the quality of service and ease of using this route would also be very welcome. Either that or pointing out where this has been discussed and a chastisement for being too lazy to look in the right place!

    Many thanks.

    Talk with your local college, or a centre even, let them know of your situation and i'm sure they will give you a specific outline to reach your target. If you decide to go in that route, the only thing you will need to pay for is the examination entry.

    I wouldnt go for ICS, I've heard that they are crap! Asking your examinations officer to enter you for the a-levels and then paying the fees would probably be the best idea.

    how do you pay for your exams generally
