My mum wouldn't let me take Health and Social care in GCSE, despite my school offering it as an option. My local college has it a an option, but I'm not sure if I will be able to take it, as I didn't do it at GCSE. I want to be a midwife and think that it would help me out. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Look at the course requirements page either in the prospectus or website and it should say if you needed to have studied it prior. If you needed to have a previous H&SC study you could do the level two and then progress onto the level 3. Also look on UCAS at different Midwifery courses and see if they have any preferences to A Levels studied before you consider the H&SC course.

Not sure whether it was only my college but we were able to chose any sudject we liked with no requirements other than to actually get into the college itself. They let us chose what we wanted to study as a way for us to explore new subjects that we may not a have had the chance to study at school, I'm pretty sure most colleges are pretty laid back when it comes to choosing your study, like I said as long as you get the requirements to get into the college itself you are basically free to chose what you want to do ☺️

You’ll definitely be able to do it - at loads of schools health & social care isn’t even an option at GCSE, so they couldn’t make it a compulsory requirement.
