    Hi I'm planning on applying for Midwifery degree, in 2014. And my top choice will be Wolverhampton & Birmingham City, not sure about all the other ones though.

    My GCSE grades were good, and the ones that I need;
    English 1st language; A
    English Lit; B
    Maths; A
    Chemistry; A
    Biology; B
    RS; A*
    German; B
    French; C
    Polish; A
    ICT level2; Distinction
    Physics; C

    AS- (predicted)
    Psychology- C/B
    Social Care-A

    Full A level- (predicted)
    Polish-A/A*
    Chemistry-B/A
    Biology-B/A
    Maths-B/A

    I do a lot of work experience, work with people with disabilities, run a sports club, work for Red Cross (1st aid etc), school work experience, working with children and babies (babysitting for 5years) etc.


    How hard is it to get in?
    Am I looking like I have a chance?
    Any other tips?

    Many thanks everyone!!

    It's hard because most universities offer less places for midwifery than nursing. I wanted to do it but i never had enough experience so instead of wasting a year applying i applied for adult nursing (3 years course) then i'll do the short course of 18 months in midwifery, that way i have 2 degrees too.

    However, you have a good chance considering your grades are high and you've got experience. The only thing i would suggest is making your personal statement as good as ever and try shadowing a midwife on a ward, even if it's for a day, a week.. at least you've experienced it. It is hard finding this, but you have a while so start looking. Email, phone, and go into hospitals! Hope this helps a tad, just going on what i've heard! Good luck xx
