Testimonial Debbie W, Herts
Having decided that I wanted to do an Archaeology degree I thought that it would be a good idea to take an A Level in the subject first, but I couldn't find anywhere in my local area that ran such a course. I happened upon College on the Net through an internet search for Archaeology courses.Though apprehensive about studying alone, feeling that I would lack support from my tutor, I decided to give the College a go anyway.
I need not have worried. My tutor responded promptly to e-mail queries, assignments were marked and returned quickly, and I enjoyed being able to work at my own pace.The lesson notes were easy to understand and incredibly detailed with a good range of web links and reading lists. In effect, what you get is an interactive textbook that never goes out of date as the web links are constantly updated. Past papers and mock exams were sent at the relevant times by post, so I was well prepared for the exam. Not only did I pass with an 'A', I only dropped 7 marks in the whole exam!
