    I'm applying for 2016! I got at GCSE 3 A*, 7 A and 2 B. I'm doing biology chemistry maths and psychology waiting for AS results but think I have got ABBB! I've got lots of experience, I volunteer fortnightly at York hospital on stroke ward, I volunteer weekly at antenatal group, I've done 2 days work experience with consultants at hospital, 1 day maternity ward experience, an intro to midwifery online course, I've attended a conference in London on pregnancy and fertilisation by Lord Robert Winston, I volunteered for 6 months at rainbows girl group, I was also a house vice captain and science ambassador at school. Have a got a good chance of getting offers as I know unis tend to like mature students a lot!!

    I am in the middle of sorting my application for 2016 and I want it sooo much! I finished my psychology degree last year but i now finally know what i want to do! I am so excited but worried as i know how competitive the course entry is! Currently trying to get work experience but I'm just sitting on waiting lists at the moment. I am 22 and living on the wirral, what about you guys? Its so nice to chat to other people passionate about becoming midwives! I think I'm boring my boyfriend!

    Hello dears

    Erm, my application's a little different. I will be applying during a year out after dropping out of medical school.

    I have A-levels at grade A in Chemistry, French and Maths (and an A* in General Studies) as well as an A in AS German.

    I have 7 A*s and 6 As at GCSE.

    As I'm limited by the lack of biology, I cannot apply in Huddersfield (my home town) which sucks but I suppose live goes on.

    I intend to definitely apply to:
    - York
    - Cardiff
    - Manchester
    - Kings'
    (I think in that order, but there are open days to attend yet)

    I think I'm going to put St George's down as my fifth choice, but I'm not too sure.

    I am applying for Midwifery for 2016 entry. I am doing a-levels in biology, psychology and health&social. I am half way through writing my personal statement but an finding it tricky because I know how important it is. I work in a fish and chip shop, I volunteer at a care home twice a week, I have completed a first aid course, I have done work experience in a primary school, I am on the waiting list for work experience on the maternity unit and I am also applying to shadow a health visitor. Currently my favourite uni's are Kings College, City University, UEA and Nottingham. Anyone got any advice on how to make a successful application or any good uni's?

    Hi 😀 haven't read all of the replies yet, just wanted to see if there are others like me applying for sep 16 entry ? I'm applying to CCCU, at Medway (we live in Maidstone)
    I'm mum to 3 girls and a boy, aged 2-10, so know I'll have my hands full (!) but now is the time to make a head start in my career.
    I did the student thing a lifetime ago and got a degree back in 1998, so hoping to do some kind of course to ease me back into the whole studying mindset (and to get a good reference!)
    When I've got a spare few mins I'll go through the replies 😀
    bye for now

    Hi I'm also in sixth form studying psychology biology maths and chemistry (dropped) and I got ABCC. I volunteer weekly at my local hospital on a ward, I also attend antenatal classes every Wednesday, I've got work experience on special care baby unit, children's neurology clinic and I have work experience on maternity unit later on in September. I also attended a conference by Lord Robert Winston in London and I'm a quarterly subscriber to British journal of midwifery. If you would like to know more about how I got these opportunities, I would be more than willing to help a fellow sixth former out
