    So we have to submit our applications for UCAS next month and the work experience that I have applied for just told me that I need to resubmit my application for another time and the quickest time for this is January since they process applications quarterly. What do I do.

    Also is volunteering at a care home considered relevant experience if I want to apply for children’s nursing? It’s just really hard to find work experience that is ‘relevant’ in time and in general

    Hi, with your care home experience, just relate it to children's nursing, for example communicating with residents families and awareness of supporting vulnerable people & safeguarding. And of course you can mention things like team work & compassion.
    You could also briefly mention you have a position lined up for some work experience however if there is no guarantee you will be accepted it may not be wise to add it in.
    If you have a tutor or personal statement advisor to ask for help, they may be able to help you make the best of the experience you do have in your ps.
    I hope this helps & good luck with your application.
