Finding it hard to find information on anyone applying for the 2014 intake of nursing for universities in Northern Ireland. Seeing a lot of English uni's gave already started their interviews, would love to hear from others applying to queens and Magee.

Hiya!

I applied last year for nursing - only to magee! I got an interview, scored well and theres lots of hoops to jump through. I found out I was successful for interview in January and got my interview for March 15th and I found out over easter break I didn't get in. They then break the unsuccessful candidates into two groups. The ones who scored well but they didn't have a place to offer - get on the reserve. Those who did not score well, got offered a new degree on health thats running at magee this yr. I'm currently a first yr psych student.....Reapplying this yr but going for mental & adult at magee....and then midwifery, childrens and adults at queens....as last yr I only applied for nursing at magee. Wishing us all the very best!!! xxx

I applied last year and made it to reserve List at queens for LD branch. Trying again this year... But trying to not be as stressed about it all this year. The process is so long and drawn out and I was exhausted with the mental torture of refreshing my emails for weeks checking if my ucas had updated. My ucas was sent off on 1/11 last year and I was one of last to hear back about interview so don't worry about when it's sent in as long as it's before ucas deadline

Lovely to hear from you, thanks for the reply. I am so stressed mentally and mentally tired from the whole ucas process, I sent of my application today. It is now a waiting game. Did you get an interview last year? Never thought applying for university would be so hard. When did you hear back from queens lSt year? And when was your int? Is hard not knowing anything about the whole process , so would love to hear back from you xx

Don't think they're sending out interviews until after the deadline date from what people have been saying. :no:
Waiting is annoying to say the least!

YES! Several times, apparently UCAS had a technical fault and were sending them out to a lot of people by mistake. I'm reapplying for nursing at Queens this year, hoping to get into children's fingers crossed. I first applied in 2011 when it was direct entry and passed the interview and got in but decided not to take it as I didn't think I was ready. I then started a history degree the following year in Queens as I thought teaching would be a better route for me however had to leave in order to care for my grandfather. After my experience I tried for nursing again last year through ucas but didn't even get an interview so this will be my third time applying. I emailed admissions with all my qualifications and they said they would consider my application so here's hoping I can get another interview and get started!

Hi guys! Im reapplying for my third year running, for magee and queens though! got on the reserve last year for magee and not even an interview from queens, queens is were i would rather go because it is closer to home but the adventure of moving to londonderry would be exciting! i got told about my interview for magee around mid feb last year and it was scheduled about mid march and we found out by the end of march if we got an offer or not and queens, i didnt hear from them until the very last minute and it was a rejection not an interview date! So fingers crossed this year i get somewere, good luck everyoneee!

Does anyone remember grade criteria for entry this year? I'm 100% when I checked before applying for queens it was bcc. I was just on their website looking out of boredom and it now says bbc 😔 I'm hoping this has only changed whenever ucas deadline was met and is for next year but it says 2014 entry. I'm panicking as I didn't get my c grade by 1 mark in an alevel last year and it means that in to two exams I'm sitting il have to get an a to come out with a b grade instead of getting the c I was originally aiming for. 😑 please someone tell me that the grade requirements I originally saw were right!

I checked before applying and it was BCC with a science, BBC without a science. It still says the same on the Queens website at the moment so I'm assuming it's correct.

So relieved to hear Queen's is notoriously slow. I'm applying for Mental Health nursing in both Magee and QUB, but my heart is set on Queen's. What type of hoops do they make you jump through? I'm getting more and more anxious as I recently talked to a friend who has had two rejections from QUB.

That will obviously depend on whether you're repeating any of your exams and the amount of work you put in. I remember when I was doing my AS levels forever ago, I did increase my mark at A level without repeating - I went from a B to an A, so it wasn't TOO much of a leap.
If you work hard or if you have the chance to repeat any modules, you might be okay?

I did it part time last year and was 1 mark below my c grade I needed that's why I didn't get place last year of reserve list- I am resitting the entire a2 year again as an external candidate. But have been caring for my dad who has just passed away recently so have to fit the work in from now to June... I decided to change topics I'm going to sit in exam to make it more interesting for myself as I was doing units like eating last year and would find likes of schizophrenia more interesting. I will work hard obviously ( done 7 hours straight last night while on night shift ) I'm just worrying il miss out again as I was so close last year and know 1 mark changed everything! I have registered my interest in an access course at serc for a back up plan next September so that no matter what il be doing something positive towards nursing... Let's hope I manage to pull it off as I want to get started on course!

You need to have a two year break from education before starting an access course
