    I've decided i want to start year 12 again after just doing A2 because i've realised that i definately want to do nursing and the A-levels i chose probably weren't the best combination after going to a uni open day, and my school didn't really help me with choosing.
    I think i'm going to do BTEC health and social care (double award) and applied science which i think is also a double award. This is because the applied science would give me the science needed for nursing, and when i did biology this year i did struggle with it, and health and social care lets you get experince as you have work experience in a care-home, primary school and hospital (providing that's what you choose to do).
    So, my question is do you think that would be okay do? I really want to do those subjects because i've struggled with biology this year.
    (I may get AS levels in sociology and biology btw which could bump my UCAS points up?).
