my best friend is in her last year of nursing at kings, she loves it there. I only didn't apply for it because I didn't want to be central London... bit of a kent bumpkin

Yay I'm so excited! I'm going to the open day next month just to show my family the uni and so they can listen to the talks. Will be so strange being around the people just thinking about applying and knowing I already have a place are you applying for accommodation?

I did 5 A Levels and decided I didn't want to study medicine so completed the Level 3 Extended BTEC to make sure I got placements and understood more about the health and social care setting. I did a placement at Kings shadowing a midwife, nursery and elderly care home xxx

I think work experience is the main thing they look for (obviously they want you to meet the grades too) I did work experience in a school, a sure start centre, with the british red cross and with an independent midwife which was amazing (she saved a placenta for me to look at!!)

I'd have to agree with Louise here. Your work experience and placement is key for midwifery. You need to have the right skills for a health and social care setting. When I went for an interview at city university of London they went as far to distribute a check list of an ideal midwife. Hope this helps. P.S. Drop the A levels if they're not working and do the BTEC. You may just find coursework is the best option xx

I'm hoping for Royal Surrey as I'm based on campus. What about you? Also when do we apply for placements? I remember at the interview she said she's post us a sheet home with our preferences xx

I was starting to worry about when we'd get the chance to say our preferences too but I asked on surreys official thread and apparently it won't be until much nearer the time. I'm hoping for Red Hill as its kinda in between where I live now and where I'll be living in September

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?

No, I think predicted grades should still be used to make offers (706)

Yes, I like the idea of applying to uni after I received my grades (PQA) (889)
