    I've applied to Southampton Uni for a degree in child nursing - I am 31 and don't have any sciences other than my GCSEs but I have worked full time as a playworker, have completed 2 NVQs in playwork & child development and then moved into the roll of manager of an after school club with children. I'm so nervous I feel sick, I am really hoping that my personal statement was strong enough to make me stand out as I know how competitive child nursing is. Has anyone heard back from Southampton? They have acknowledged my application today, please keep your fingers crossed for me and good luck to everyone else waiting to hear!

    Hi

    Just wondering if anyone has written a personal statement that one uni has rejected and others offered interviews. Feeling really disheartened as had my first rejection with no feedback. I am applying for child nursing and only have experience with adults in healthcare however wrote how my personal statement as my college advised putting in my experience and saying how it could be transferable etc . College said it was fine and off it went.
    When i phoned for feedback was told it wasnt geared enough toward the child field and now am so worried every uni is going to see it the same. Any advice? :-(
    Every person who doesn't receive either all rejections or all offers has this exact experience......
