I had to do this course to boost my UCAS points and I passed! It got me where I needed to be.
I enrolled on this course as I needed extra points for Uni. Oxbridge were able to fast track me and I was able to do this in a much shorter time frame than the 2 years.
I needed some help and called the college and despite my tutor not being available they were able to pass my call to a subject specialist, Chris gave me some great help and advice. He also recommended some books to aid my learning – Unexpected and very grateful.
I particularly enjoyed learning the bits about religion, it was quite thought-provoking. My tutor was fairly helpful as were the College. A-Levels are hard work, there’s no question of that so be prepared to work hard.
