    BCU are just taking the mic! I feel sorry for all of you who are still waiting for a uni offer. It's pretty bad on the university actually. If this is how unorganized they're going to be before the course (BARING IN MIND the course starts in 2 months and no one has been offered places yet), then what're they going to be like during the course? It'll be good for those who can't stick to deadlines anyway!

    i did mine in hull, theres a driving school there that works with the ambulance service to make sure pupils taking their C1 for the paramedics (and not just for lorry driving) learn right in the city and down the small streets etc aswell as the outskirts so that they have some experience of what it might be like to manovuer a vehicle that big in busy streets. i did my theory and hazard perception then did two days out in the lorry, then the test the next day. its not too scary i enjoy driving so i really enjoyed it, only got 1 minor, probs hardest part is knowing when to stop on the reverse park.

    Hi everyone,
    I will be joinin you in this big game of anxiety and dissapointment as i too have decided to become a paramedic.
    Just wanted to share my work experiance in the hope you could give me a little feedback.
    I dicked around in school far too much and got kicked out before i even tryed my GCSE's since then i have grown up and managed to complete an NVQL3 in motor mechanics (it was sort of a road i was forced down and thankful for at the time.

    That was 6 years ago and this christmas i weighed up what i wanted in life and concluded on becoming a paramedic, since that point i have done my first aid at work/medical gases/AED/spinal immobilisation and various forms of airway management. This has landed me with a voluntary job as an event first aider, i have worked for sporting events festivals and i even helped cover the olympic torch, on top of this i have become a rescue medic (glorified first aider) with the hovercraft search and rescue and i am applying to become a community first responder.
    Im hoping with 12months of this behind my belt it should put me in a good position, the event companys i work for are run by an ex army field medic and a paramedic both willing to give me a referance.
    As well as this i am doing an online course in anatomy & physiology and in september i will be attending an access to nursing course. This will include key skills in english and maths.
    Im so desperate to get in and any advice or criticism would be welcome.
    Thanks , dan
    PS; good luck to all those applying this year and all those who are going to uni this year.

    Good luck to you! Your experience sounds great. Obv lack of GCSE's and A levels is an issue but the Access course will help you loads. Have you looked at entry requirements for some of the unis you want to apply to? Sounds like you're doing all the right things though
