Very unhappy. I understand that a contract is needed when purchasing an A-Level course, however I very quickly realised that the courwe in question is certainly not "value for money." I bought the 3-subject package, costing over £800, and opted to pay monthly as the cost is so large to me. I expected something that teaches me effectively and gives me a lot of help along the way from the online tutors, yet what I got instead was simply an online booklet for each topic, quite old-fashioned and bland/blocky paragraphs in layout, with no photographs or diagrams. That is it. I tried many times to reach out to my 'tutors' for help in my subjects, but often did not receive a response; if I ever did, it was almost a week later, and all they told me to do was refer to the online course (booklet.) Helpful...? I did not once feel supported and it made it ever more stressful. Also, additional costs are needed to actually sit the exams at the end of the year, and I found myself having to purchase my own pricey books on the topics to ACTUALLY help me. I realised that the courses I was provided with, were the equivalent of free booklets I'd be able to probably find online. Once I tried to break the contract, unintentionally at first, as I got a new debit card and forgot to change the card number on my payment details, I assumed I wouldn't have to pay the remainder as: I was paying monthly, I did not intend to continue, and I hadn't even logged in to my account since my previous payment. This was not the case: I was bombarded with emails every week claiming payment wasn't successfully made, and after a few of these, was sent a threatening email claiming they would hand my details to a debt collection agency, if I refused to keep paying for the unhelpful course. DO NOT choose Oxford Learning College if you wish to take your A-Levels or anything equivalent - it is a huge waste of money (over £800, to be precise, some maybe even more.) I am only 19 years old, I am stressed, and almost completely out of money, and I want something to be done about it.
