    So i am in year 10 and i have currently been thinking about wanting to become a midwife in the future, as i finish my option lessons this year i was wondering what i would need to become a midwife, i am currently taking health and social care in which i finish by the end of year 10, i started my GCSE's at the start of year 9 as my school turned into an academy and it all changed, so i was also wondering what GCSE's i would also need and how many C's and above, thanks

    It might be worth looking at some university courses online to see what their entry requirements are, as they are likely to vary somewhat between universities/courses.

    In general you will be likely to need at least 5 GCSEs at Grade C or above, including English Language, Maths and a Science subject. After that, general 3 or 4 A-levels, including a related subject (Biology, Health & Social Care, Psychology, etc) with a certain number of UCAS points, and once you're at college and thinking about applying it would also be really useful to get some work experience, shadowing or volunteering in a healthcare setting.

    Hope that helps.
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
