I failed my gcse core science and additional science. So I'm doing btec health and social care level 2 (3 GCSEs) in college and then at 2nd year I'll be doing btec health and social care level 3 with sociology. I wanna be a nurse and I understand the requirements are 5 GCSEs A*-C in English, maths and science but since I don't have my science gcse can my btec health and social care level 2 (3 GCSEs) replace my gcse science? Also do nursing degree universities accept btec level 2? Thank you for your time! Xx

The best thing to do is check the entry requirements of the university, you can do this through their website or directly by contacting their admissions department.
Are you able to resit your science? Even with the BTEC level 3, you may still need the GCSE grade C.
In addition to meeting academic requirements, some relevant voluntary or work experience is recommended or required by universities. There is a sticky thread with work experience ideas if you are interested.

Although health and social care may seem like a science it isn't an actual science and is foreseen as a social science instead. If you haven't gained your 5 GCSEs then universities may reject you as the competition to get into nursing at university is rather high and considers a rigid selection process. When invited for an interview if you don't pass the maths and English tests then you also fail process getting into uni. All I can suggest is enter uni later on when you're 21 as a mature student who holds the experience
