    I've currently finished my AS levels after failing my first year of IB due to being ill. The results weren't too great as again ive had to take a few weeks of absence due to my health, but after the summer holidays it's showing signs of improving cos of new medicine. I have done 3 AS levels this year; business studies, graphics and illustrations and biology.
    I hope to become a nurse and study at Surrey or Southampton but I'm worried that taking a third year of resitting my Biology AS whilst doing my A2 of Business and Graphics (as having been ill it's not been advised to take the biology AS and A2 in the same year) will give a negative impression to the unis as some do not accept resit students.
    Are they other options to becoming a nurse other than applying to uni?

    A degree is required to become a Nurse.

    Universities do not have a negative impression on students who resit their A-levels to get onto the nursing programme. So, you'll be fine.

    It is also important to get caring experience in clinical settings etc, because it will give you more insight into nursing and you can develop on essential skills and qualities that is needed. It will help you a lot, when you write your personal statement for UCAS application.
