    Hi, second year student midwife here
    Congratulations and good luck to everyone who has received an offer to start this year and good luck to anyone starting their application for next year. I've created a blog post about things I wish I'd known before becoming a student midwife and it's basically a few tips I've put together in the hope of helping someone.
    The blog can be found here: https://myjourneyasastudentmidwife.w...udent-midwife/
    Hope someone finds this helpful

    hi
    when i started college i did level 2 health and social care i have now completed it and got a good grade. This year is my second year of college now and i am doing btec level 3 health and social care and hoping to do extended diploma in this subject next year too. I really want to do midwifery when i go into uni but i have only got maths and RE at grade c dont laugh i got d in chemistry, d in biology only 1 mark away from a c i got ict diploma level 1/2 pass grade i got d in english. I am very worried will i even get into uni. I am doing gcse english at college and taking the exam at the end of the year now, and i am hoping i can do gcse science at the college. I was wondering will i get into midwery or adult nursing?

    Thank you

    Hey, Iv just been accepted for midwifery at Kings college London. You need to have your GCSE's and A levels or equivalent (Such as an Access course- which I'm doing!) including biology as a subject. If you haven't got these you could do an access course which will give you these grades to get in. This is if you're over 19 though! Try looking at the entry requirements on the Kings website and if there is an alternative. Hope this helps!

    Howwww please share your techniques. Such a hard uni to get into. Where else did you have interviews for? What was the interview like? Entry tests? Lol spill pleaseeee

    Hi everyone
    I'm looking for a bit of advice!
    I'm interested in applying for midwifery 2017 but due to how competitive the course is and the entry requirements becoming higher, I am unsure if it's worth applying or not?

    I am 23 years old and I have level 3 qualifications with good grades, my issues occur with my level 2. I have GCSE English, Functional Skills Maths, OCR Science and a range of other BTEC first certificate level 2 qualifications.

    I do not have the time and cannot financially afford to retake my level 2 qualifications. I have a range of different work experiences and currently just applied for a post within a maternity ward which I have an interview for in a few weeks (hoping it'll go in my favor)

    Is it something you think I should go for even though my grades can be an issue? it'll be finding a university that has flexible entry requirements which many don't have
    Or I have considered the alternative long route of adult nursing which my grades are more than likely to be accepted in and where it is less competitive


    Thank you!

    Hi!
    You are best off ringing up the university's as now they are expecting GCSE maths and English, if you ring up and explain your circumstances they may tell you to apply or go to an open day where you can talk to a midwifery tutor and they can give you more information. Good luck

    Hello
    I have done this but I am just unsure if it is worth taking the risk as you can only have one application per year, so if I should apply for midwifery on the off chance or go through adult nursing but I think that route is phasing out these days X

    Thank you, you too!

    Adult nursing is an option however, if you want to progress into midwifery if you get a loan from the government for your adult nursing you then have to pay the fees for the 18month course Which is sometimes difficult. It all depends On how confident you feel towards it, if you have relevant work experience and enough UCAS points to apply then i would say go for it.

    Although I know for adult nursing you need your GCSE maths as majority of university's are not accepting functional skills. If this is the case I would try and do a adult course and do your GCSE maths and then apply for midwifery if you then have all the relevant work experience x

    Has anyone heard off of UWS or Napier? I haven't been rejected but I haven't heard from them since I got the email saying they had received my application back in November. Getting a little bit worried now 😔

    I think that all depends on the university itself and if they have places available, I would contact them
    There isn't any harm in trying at least!

    You should most definitely contact the uni your interested in and find out since your personal statement reflects adult nursing also, midwifery is more competitive than adult nursing so if there are places available you getter get in quick, good luck, update us in terms of how it goes 👍
