How hard is it to get into University of SouthamptonWatch
I am sending my uni application off this week and my top choice is Southampton uiversity to study the dual nursing degree in childrens and adults nursing. the entry requirement is ABB. I have finished college and taking a gap year, my results are BB in Health and Social and D in sociology, but I will have quit a bit of experience. I am currently working as a healthcare assistant and next year I will be doing 6 months volunteering abroad in hospitals, orphanages, schools, some things with animals and sight seeing but mainly i'm in hospitals around Africa and Asia. I here Southhampton is really hard to get into so I was just wondering if there was any point in me applying to Southampton, does anyone think I have a chance or should I save that spot for a different university.

It might be worth asking about the possibility of transferring from Adult nursing to the dual honours course - as the entry requirements for the 3 yr Adult course are lower.
If they aren't promising then ask if there are any specific science preparation courses you could take this year to boost your application - something giving a strong background in physiology/anatomy or similar are most likely to appeal to them.
they have an offer rate of 12% and your grades are significantly below the entry requirements. unless you experience seriously makes you stand out and or you have serious mitigating factors I don't mean to be harsh but I don't think your chances are good. Can you not resit some A levels as an option?
