Hi,firstly sorry if this is in the wrong place!

- so last year I didnt even take my exams due to ill health and realised my hopes of studying medicine were gone.

- I have just retaken year 12 with Sociology and Psychology (my school didn't want to add pressure on me so only allowed me to do 2 subjects) and my aim is now Adult Nursing/Mental Health Nursing.
- I got my AS results back today: I achieved a C in psych (B and D) and a U in Sociology.
- My plan is to retake the one unit in psychology I got a D in and continue with it,pick up btec health and social (I'm not too sure about credits or whether it's a certificate/diploma ect or how it works but you get two grades eg. DD) and I've already started an extended project.
Is this a good move? My head of sixth had approved this. Am I likely to be accepted into universities? I have lots of health care experience in elderly care homes,I did a placement in a hospital for a week and I was a carer for someone with a terminal illness with amputated legs for two years. I'm also thinking about GapMedics and maybe fundraising so I could do a nursing placement with them. I have lots of extra curricular activities/hobbies to add and I do think I'd make a good student. I'm very determined and enthusiastic.

Is this enough?! Thank you so much in advance for your replies and sorry for the essay

If you get over 240 ucas points I think you d have a good chance if you get plenty of experience and work on your ps.(yes it is a good move) My only thought is that maybe you could consider taking a gap year so you already have the grades you need rather than having to go solely off predicted grades or you could consider foundation entry to nursing next year
