Midwifery 2017 still competitive?? Or adult nursing route? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi everyone
    I'm looking for a bit of advice!
    I'm interested in applying for midwifery 2017 but due to how competitive the course is and the entry requirements becoming higher, I am unsure if it's worth applying or not?

    I am 23 years old and I have level 3 qualifications with good grades, my issues occur with my level 2. I have GCSE English, Functional Skills Maths, OCR Science and a range of other BTEC first certificate level 2 qualifications.

    I do not have the time and cannot financially afford to retake my level 2 qualifications. I have a range of different work experiences and currently just applied for a post within a maternity ward which I have an interview for in a few weeks (hoping it'll go in my favor)

    Is it something you think I should go for even though my grades can be an issue? it'll be finding a university that has flexible entry requirements which many don't have
    Or I have considered the alternative long route of adult nursing which my grades are more than likely to be accepted in and where it is less competitive

    Thank you!
Do you think parents should charge rent?
