HI there I am really looking for a lot of advice and any ATALL would be greatly appreciated. I am a 25 year old female student living in NorthernIreland studying an access course (science) with the hope of startinguniversity September 2014 to study nursing. My predicament is I failed my mathsGCSE and I am just hoping there is someone out there that could guide me alittle. At this present time I feel my passion would to be eventually specialisingin a neonatal unit and so I had thought of doing children’s nursing. However withfailing my GCSE, my options aren’t so broad anymore. At the end of the day nursingis what I want to do and I am interested in all areas. So one question is: arethere any UK universities that accept essential/functional skill at level 2 asan equivalent to maths GCSE? I am pretty certain that University of Ulster UU)here in Northern Ireland does? I’m looking for answers for both Adult and children’snursing. I’d love to hear from current student nurse that may have been in mysituation.

Hey, the only way to find out for sure is to email them, contact the admissions on their website and ask, be sure to tell them you are an Access Student as that is relevant, last year I was told that because I was an Access Student when applying to History I didn't need a Math GCSE. However I think it is different for Science based courses. Also, if you are studying at Belfast Met you may want to consider switching to the optional module of NCATS, which is accepted by queens as a equivalent. As far as I am aware, I think University of Ulster accept equivilents, but again there is no certain answer until you email them and receive the answer there. Good Luck, if all else fails you could probably enter into a fast track Math GCSE starting in January and ending in June at Belfast Met. Good Luck, I hope it all works out for you.
