Opinions

What I would highlight Have been studying for the past year to take my exam, found the course material very in-depth, and prepared me for my final exam. I think though that i should have made myself a timetable as found it hard to juggle family, job and study time. My tutor always answered my questions and comments on my SAPs, however it would have been nice to been given a nudge to submit more and asked if further help was needed. (however that is i suppose the learners doing!) I am a person that needs pushing and at time i lacked motivation. A question bank or mock exam would also have been helpful towards the end for revision. Overall though i would enjoyed the course structure and am more than happy with my grade. Thank you for all your help.
