The two mandatory subjects I would like obtain a full A level in is Law, and Philosophy.

Any other subjects that would be a bonus would include Ecomomics, and/or Politics.

I want to know who offers the best distance learning courses for A Levels?????

Thanks.

I was looking into this very thing today... I was thinking of trying to turn my AS level in Critical Thinking into a full A level just to give me another qualification... But since this 'new' A level thing is coming in I think my last chance to add to my existing qualification is this year, can someone let me know if it's not?

To answer the original post, though, the best sites I found whilst looking today were:
http://www.openstudycollege.com
http://www.icslearn.co.uk/
http://www.distance-learning-centre.co.uk/

and Oxford Open Learning, as mentioned above. Hope this helps!

Very friendly teacher. Quick reply when I email in. Lots of resources in the learning zone. Powerpoints on every topic. Pastpapers, Tests, Homeworks .. all with mark schemes. Best bit is the practical assessment in the February half term which was very well organised with lots of practice beforehand. Check out the Brockenhurst website

I'm currently studying history through ICS, it's tough and if you need a tutor to motivate you then I'd recommend against it. However if you do feel you are cut out for it they include a lot of information, which is ideally studied alongside some books they recommend, the tutors aim to respond to queries in 48 hours however I've never had to wait that long for my tutor and he gives some really good advice. I can't compare to any other courses, this is my first distance learning course but I will be going back to them in summer when I start my next A level.

The tutors at UK Open Learning are really good. I did an A Level with them and they were really helpful. Has anyone else ever used them?

I am studying AS Law through oxford college distance learning center, I have only just started the course so I can't give a very accurate review! However, all the learning materials are there, with recommended textbooks and assignments on each subject, so I definitely have no complaints so far!

Does anyone know if you can just take the exams for A2 on distance learning courses?
I didn't get the grades I wanted this year (BCE), so I was thinking of taking English lit to gain a new a level and huff retaking my psychology (I got a B) at A2, since I got 90% in each exam at AS.
I found a course that is the same spec as I did, so would it be possible for me to pay for the full course, but only take the exams for the A2 exams so I can focus on English? Or would I need to take both AS and A2?
Also if I didn't do as well on the AS, would my old results still count?

You can currently take your exams again and resit your A2 units and increase your A level grades, however, this is the last year for many subject as A levels are changing back to linear qualifications (meaning you take all of your exams at the end of the 2 years)

Check with your school/college to find out which of your subjects are changing.

Good Luck with your studies

Hi I am looking to do Biology and Chemistry AS and A2 (fast track course) combined, had a look at some colleges but they are quite far away from me and I'm also working -has anyone studied these with NEC? Would they recommend doing science A levels via distance learning? What about practicals?

I've also studied with Oxbridge Home Learning (did a-levels) found them to be great, did have some reservations about learning at home but i was surprised how hands on it was. Had a tutor i could contract at any time with fast replies.

Did u apply through ucas? If so who gave you a full reference in writing as you do not have face to face contact with the tutors. And also who gave the predicted grades? Thanks so much pls reply ASAP
