FAQ's

What is the difference between Level 3 Diploma and an A Level?

Our Level 3 Diplomas have been specifically written for us by qualified distance learning course writers who are qualified to at least Level 5 or above. The Level 3 Diplomas are 1 year courses comprising 10 modules followed by an online examination. The course is pitched at Level 3 so is the equivalent level of study as an A Level. On successful completion of the exam, an Oxford College Diploma certificate is issued.

An A Level is a 2 year course that follows a specific syllabus provided by the corresponding examining body such as Edexcel, AQA and OCR. The A Level carries UCAS points depending on the grade achieved. The A Level is on Level 3 of the National Qualifications Network. A Levels are assessed by exams which have to be attended in person. A Level certificates are provided by the examining boards.

How is the course accredited?

The Level 3 Diplomas are accredited by ABC Awards. Our Diplomas do not carry UCAS points. Many of our Diplomas are approved by the CMA (Complementary Medical Association) where students can register as a practitioner and receive advice on setting up a practice and getting the correct insurance.

How is the course assessed and examined?

All Level 3 Diplomas are assessed by online examination at the end of the course. The online exam must be taken within the 1 year time limit of the course.
