You may get more answers in the Mature Students section?

You could study anything to do with chemistry, biology or physics. I don't think you can do nursing.

I'm sure if you speak to your tutor, they can give you some guidance.

The place I've just moved this to. Access courses are for people beyond the usual A level age who want to re-enter education, which sounds like you.

Health science usually contains students wanting to go into nursing, paramedics, ODP etc
Social science is usually social workers etc

Access to Science: Biological Science, Biomedical Science, Chemistry, Genetics, Mathematics, Optometry, Pharmacology, Pharmacy, Physics, Radiography, Zoology.

That's just some of them. (:

Cambridge do not accept Access courses for entry to Natural Sciences, or most (if not all) of their Science related degrees.
They do in principle, but you will need one or more A Levels in addition:

For Natural Sciences, an Access diploma must be backed up with A Level Maths for the Physical Sciences path, and it is recommended for the Biological Sciences path.

Individual colleges may have more stringent requirements, so for the sciences it may be best for mature applicants to focus on colleges with an interest in mature students.

With an access to science course, you would be able to study any science degree as long as you took the relevant access course modules. Maths on access courses is a bit weak, so a lot of the better universities require students to sit a maths assessment test if they are applying to a maths-heavy degree (maths, physics, engineering). You can get around this by doing A levels maths alongside the access course.
