Hello Everyone!

Im hoping to study a nursing or paramedic degree at uni but i cant for the life of me figure out how many UCAS points i have.... if i even have any!

My current qualifications are;

GCSE Science dual award -CC
GCSE food tech - B
GCSE English Language - C
GCSE Maths - C
GNVQ ICT - Merit
BTEC L3 National Diploma - PPP
NVQ L2 Health and Social Care - Pass
NCFE L2 Certificate in Fitness instructing - Pass
City & Guilds L3 Award in Body Massage - Pass

Im predicting that i dont have any UCAS points but i cant figure it out on the UCAS site...And the lady i spoke to at the university didnt really help much either.

Thanks

120 UCAS Points. Source: http://www.universityfinder.org.uk/u...alculator.html

The only qualification that gives you these points is the BTEC. Hope this helps

Your BTEC L3 National Diploma is worth 120 UCAS points, but none of the other qualifications carry points. To get into university for nursing/paramedic science you will need relevant experience (paid or voluntary) and you will probably need to do an Access course. Both of those degrees are very competitive, so you'll need to get decent grades in the Access course and have a strong personal statement.

I think the question which everyone wants to know the answer to, do you do full body, or did you specialize in an area?

I currently work for the NHS as a health care assistant so I do have a lot of experience.

Hi,

Its great your looking to go back to education, I'd first of all start by looking at the Ucas website that should offer you some information on what you need to get into the university.

If you don't have enough points to get in then I'd advise looking at the access courses, I know at my college they offer one in nursing and from what I'm told some universities don't require a great deal of experience.

You can search for a course in your local area with this link ----> https://www.accesstohe.ac.uk/Pages/Default.aspx

I hope this helps
