myt sound stupid, bt How much biology does it involve?
I mean do you have to be an A grade biology student or is my C grade science gcse ok?
Can you go in knowing the basics and allow the uni to develop your knowledge or evven if your miraculously given an offer the pressure of biology would be so much you would end up dropping it?

The foundations of it all is biology, so of course it is a huuuge part.
Uni's vary, most I have seen do not specifically say that they want biology, while others say a science subject of any kind at A level is necessary.
The uni will of course develop your knowledge, if they didn't you wouldn't be a great midwife! But I think as long as you've passed at least 5 subjects at GCSE you should be good.

I've never heard geo or maths referred to as sciences.

Psych/Sociology are deemed social sciences.

Maths and geography are most definitely considered sciences.

I'm not disputing the fact, just saying I've never heard of them being called science. Although I've not taken maths since GCSE.

i am doing a level 3 access to midwifery this is the equivalent to A level/foundation degree standard . when i used a GCSE human biology book for my exam. my tutor said the answers were too general. so my advise to you is buy or loan " Myers midwifery" book and for revision buy an A level human biology book and then you will be in good stead for these subjects and you will know what these subjects entail. go to amazon books are pretty cheap.
