I am very close to enrolling with the open study college on further maths & maths but the only thing that is worrying me is the services who called me from the open study college seem prevelent on me giving them my details over the phone & enrolling with them instead of online & through the website, when asked I got the response that it would be cheaper but I imagine this is just a ploy in where they take £20 off the total cost, so they can then get me to enrol with them where they will then earn a commision. Also they seem to have a never ending "on sale" A level courses. All these small ploys are putting me off. Could someone explain their experience with the open study college and if it safe spending £850 to enrol with them. Thanks.

I imagine for maths you would be fine.
Ive found it very stressful studying English Literature, partially due to questions about coursework provisions not being answered and partially due to exam booking stress. With maths / further maths you should be fine as there is no coursework involved and so booking your exams should be straightforward.

TBH, you could probably teach yourself maths/further maths from the textbooks, depending how good you are at that sort of stuff.
