It should only take 2-3 working days for your worked to be marked. Once marked they send the next lesson out to you the next working day. First or second class depending on what delivery option you chose while enrolling on the course. Assignments can also take longer, if it's special times of the year such as Christmas or they are taking time off, or they may even have a back log of assignments to mark so that my delay the marking time.

If you don't receive feedback after about 10 days through the post, or your student account then you should email or ring the college. I had a postal problem with one of my course materials, and it was sent first class and I never got it and I was waiting 5 days for it. I emailed the college and they said they had sent it out a few days ago. They responded very fast, and said they will send another through the post and I should get it the next day and I did.

Sending work through the post isn't always reliable unless, you send it through recorded delivery which can be expensive. The best way to send work is through your student account, as you can view your feedback quicker rather than wait for it in the post. It's even easier if you study your course online as you have your modules already there.

I've always chosen paper study, as I've only been able to pay my course off monthly. I'm sure online is just as good but, you get all your lessons as soon as you enroll rather than have to wait.

I hope this helps.
