    I think there is UCAS Extra? But I'm not too clued up on it.

    ...Ok as the people above said they've pushed it back...

    You can only apply through Extra if you've made 5 choices in the usual way and have either been rejected by all or have no offers.

    I didn't ask how competitive it was; I asked why would you need a degree in it? Same with nursing; it should be apprenticed. Degrees should be for academic subjects only.

    well then your comment wasn't appropriate or relevant to the OP and you should take your rant elsewhere.

    you'll need to declare your current maths grade and then mention in your PS that you are retaking - you cannot enter it as pending as it will have already been certificated

    Really stupid. You're incredibly lucky.

    Edit: Thinking about it, kind of unfair as I don't know the circumstances. Although it applies if you were just lazy. :P

    Your right, it was stupid and I am lucky! I am still debating whether to apply this year anyway as the course is so difficult to get onto!

    You are right, and god damn I wish it was still apprenticed (as it used to be, not as such apprenticed).

    So you actually have to do a degree to become one now? Insane . . . anyone who ever votes Labour again should be hung, drawn and quartered.
