I'm taking Cambridge A-levels, taking all 3science subjects plus Math, in Stamford college. As i know, not much people will think of doing A-levels in Stamford. But i'm just here to share my experience.
I joined the July 2005 intake, after all the twist and turn choosing college and course. The first 5months were ok. But now, after a month break of Dec and a "happening" January, everything becomes not ok at all. All my lecturers, i mean ALL 4 of them, left the college due to management and their year end bonus stuff. Now, they employ part-time lecturers to replace them.
For Math, they employed a very experienced secondary Math teacher. In another words, he has experiences for secondary Math, not A-level Math.
For Chemistry, they employed a fresh graduate from local university who couldn't speak english. Her english was horrible till no one can understand what was she trying to say unless we listen very carefully when she repeats.
For Biology, they employed a student of PhD in something related to Biology. She teaches everything, in this case, i mean things which are not in our syllabus.
For Physics, i don't even know who they employed.
From all the "rubbish" above, other than to complain, what i am trying to say is choose wisely. Don't be like me. Get into a trap and couldn't get out.
