    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.

    Unless you plan to resit it and have good predicted grades, it's unlikely they'll give you an offer. PQ can probably advise further.

    Ring them up and ask them

    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?

    Because until I linked you to it last week you didn't know it existed?
