    For midwifery; Biology, Religious studies, health and social care or psychology are good! However each university may differ from the other, the ones above are in line with Birmingham City, but I guess the others won't be too different! oh yeah and Sociology!

    Hope this helps!!

    I know at my university they have made Biology a requirement for midwifery. When I was thinking of doing midwifery instead of nursing, most places seemed to want biology at AS and a lot wanted it at A2.

    Sociology will be good for understanding different cultures, family set-ups, etc. My sociology A level has helped me in nursing.

    Sociology, Psychology, Biology or Health and Social Care are all good subjects for what you're thinking of doing

    Either Sociology or Psychology might be a good fourth option. All those subjects would be useful for teaching or nursing!

    A degree in children's nursing (BSc Hons) takes 3 years to complete

    It depends what type of teaching you want to do - early years, primary, secondary, further or higher education, special needs...

    Look here at different types of teacher/lecturer and what you need for them:

    Then do your research on uni courses
