Hello, my name is Lauren, I'm 20 years old and want to be a midwife.
i applied to university last year, in the hope Id be accepted and be going this September (2014)
I have GCSEs all C and above, apart from maths, in which i got an E. I also have a DDM in health and social care (health science)
When I found out my result in maths, I went on a course which gave me "Level 2 adult numeracy" which is supposedly a A-C GCSE equivalent. But when I applied for midwifery, they didn't accept me purely because of my maths.. I was told that some universities accept the level 2 adult numeracy, but from having had a look online, it seems the entry requirements changed in 2012..
I really don't want to have another year out of education and would really like to go to uni in September 2015, but the thing is, I can't re take my maths GCSE until June 2015.. And the closing dates for applying to university are around February 2015 time..


Im so stuck on what to do, by the time that I can retake my GCSE (and hopefully pass) it will be too late to apply to uni, which means I'll have to have another year out.
unless there is a way that they will accept me on the ground that they know I'm completing my GCSE?
PLEASE HELP.

Is this for postgrad degree?you can still retake you'r GCSE maths and apply for university.You need to include this in your UCAS application when applying. By the time you enroll to uni you would have your results for maths.

Call up your University of choice and a couple of others and discuss whether they will extend to you a conditional offer based on you passing your GCSE in Maths. Even if they don't, most Universities will still accept applications right up to September, so if you take your GCSE in June there will still be time to apply for a degree in Clearing. Don't worry, there's always hope, and a good university will work with you to make it happen. I would go in to discussions saying that you WILL be taking your GCSE rather than you might - it shows that you are committed.

Hopefully that helps?
