    I started my access course on September this year and I have the most horrible teachers who do nothing than scare us. I just want to leave the course look for work as am finding it really hard to focus with this teachers at their pass grades. I really want the be a midwife but at this point am kindaa giving up. The stress of this course is too much and when a teacher delivers a 30 min lesson and expects you to write some 2pages worth of what she didn't teach its difficult. Am dyslexic and I take time and planning to construct a paragraph. Can someone please tell me any other way to get into midwifery without all this stress I have done a Btec level 2 and have distinction also have my English Gcse and working on math this year.

    It's difficult to say whether this is due to the course itself or the teachers. If you have concerns about the quality of teaching, you can take them up with the course lead. If you want additional support due to your dyslexia, there should be a disability service or student support service which can help you (e.g. getting extensions).

    You would need English and Maths at GCSE - look at the universities you are interested in for the grade requirements. You could do a BTEC level 3 extended diploma or continue with the access course. Always be sure to check the specific requirements of the universities you want to apply to.

    I'm a bit reluctant to advise you to drop the access course because often these courses are very good and are a great way of easing you into the learning style of a degree. I know your teacher is asking you to do work that she hasn't taught you directly, but unfortunately you are expected to do this constantly throughout your degree so it is a useful skill to develop.
