Hi guys,
I was wanting to study Environmental Sciences A Level as a mature student, part-time alongside work, in preparation for potentially university next year.
My local College doesn't offer this A Level, however I've found a few Online learning platforms that offer the AQA course which look good, and say it provides you with an A Level (so UCAS pts) upon completion (just need to book the exams myself).
The Online companies are UK Open College, and Ncc Home Learning. Just hoped for some feedback if people have used these to study, just to check they are reputable as their Trustpilot scores indicate. And if the modules are structured well and the course is easy to follow etc. Or even better, if anyone has studied Environmental Sciences with them!
Or otherwise any other online learning companies people recommend more for A-Levels?
Thanks,
Dan

EDIT: Sorry may be posted in wrong section, it's about A-Levels not University studies but I'm not sure how to move it now.

Want to add OpenStudyCollege to that list. I've since read some bad things about NCC home learning on here, so definately leaning against that one now.

I am quite knowledgeable on the area of Environmental Sciences having a personal interest in the current environmental situation, and studied Geography and Biology at A-Level many years ago (over 10 years ago so memory is hazy on quite a lot of it though so would need a lot of refreshing- and my grades weren't good back then as didn't work hard enough- D,D). So one option is just to buy the AQA book, and study it myself and book the exam myself. Have many here had success that way? My main hesistation is that I'd now much rather read mostly from a computer than all written materials, so an online course still feels like my best option if I can find a reliable one.

Links of the courses I'm considering:
