    Hi everyone,
    I'm 19 and have recently been in hospital a lot and so decided I want to train to be a nurse. After phoning universities I was told my A levels are not quite enough to get on an adult nursing course, so was advised to do an Access course.
    I have applied for one at my local college and I've got an interview in a couple of weeks. I would like to know how competitive it is to get onto an access course, and roughly what my chances are? I have 7 A's and 3 B's at GCSE, and at level have an A in physcology, C in History and D in biology (I didn't do as well in my a levels as I could have done!).
    Also, any tips or advice for the interview or the course in general?
    Thank you!!

    Hey Maggie
    I thought i d mention off the top of my head there are actually a few universities that would accept you for nursing (anglia ruskin, bedforshire, Canterbury Christ Church, cumbria, hertfordshire, keele, staffordshire and teeside all accept 260 ucas points or lower) just with your a levels so i really doubt you ll have an issues getting onto an access course if theres places to be had
