Hi all, my situation is as follows:
-A-levels in mathematics, physics, and business studies (all A grade)
- Then I went to university to study business management. I didn't like it very much, but I got a 2:1
- About half way through that university course I realized my heart wasn't in it
- In the past year since leaving university, I have been "mooching around" career wise, basically saving money in dead end jobs
- I have no interest in that kind of job and have been doing a lot of thinking and research and would really like to train to be a nurse
I just don't know if it's realistically possible. I know there is NHS funding available, but I also know they recently changed that? Would my A-levels be alright for nursing? I also don't have any work experience in healthcare (although lots in other areas), is that okay? Is it possible for me to get into anywhere on 2016 entry?

As said in the other forums that you've posted in,
Get some experience as nurse, paramedic etc as you've said are very different careers. Experience will also help your application should you choose to go on and apply.
You could apply through clearing but please bear in mind the spaces fill very quickly and you need to be aware of what the course and career entails whatever you choose.
Bursaries stop from Aug 2017 so a March intake would be possible but spaces will fill quick due to imminent bursary cessation.
