I'm currently trying to find an online college to do A Level Maths and Further Maths (AQA exam board). What are people's opinions on the following colleges?:
National Extension College
Open Study College
Oxbridge Home Learning
Wolsey Hall Oxford
UK Open College
Cloud Learn
Oxford College
Distance Learning Centre
Oxford Open Learning
Brock
NCC Home Learning
E Learn UK
Home Study Zone
Stonebridge
Online Pembrokeshire
Oxford Home Schooling
ICS

The prices currently range from £375 to £875-ish. I'm not sure about the quality of teaching

Well I can't really say my opinion on those but isn't Math well resourced online? I'm sure you can self teach it to be honest. Or is it a problem with taking the actual exam?

No, as a private candidate, you will need to attend an approved exam centre and pay for the exam, so you don't really need the online college. Having said that, you will still need to go through the material, and hence you still need the overpriced textbooks.

In terms of learning though, I kind of need at least an A in it, and I'm more concerned about the quality of teaching. If the course allows me to get at least an A, I'm more willing to pay for it than to self teach.
