    Hi I plan on going to university and study midwifery , but my only problem is the requirement. As majority of the universities that I want to go to have a set requirement of 128 (ABB) and realistically I don’t think I would get that, but I was thinking on going through another route in order to become a midwife, and that is by applying for adult nursing.

    I need advice on wether or not this would be helpful and beneficial for me. PLEASE I REALLY NEED GUIDANCE.

    Thank you.

    Hi, I am a student adult nurse, the only things about applying for adult nursing when you want to study midwifery are: 1. There may not be a midwifery conversion course available when you finish your degree or you may not be successful gaining a place. 2. The interviewers may sense you are not 100% set on adult nursing and you may not gain a place. and 3. You will have to do everything expected of you on the adult nursing course which could be extra difficult if you are passionate about midwifery & not adult nursing.
    It's worth keeping in mind that there may be a chance of still getting a place if you just miss your grades for your offer. And you can give yourself the best chance of getting the grades you need by using all the resources available to you at college.
    There is also the option of clearing if you want to explore all the options available to you after results day.
    I'm sorry that this post has a negative feel to it but it is important to consider negatives that comes with trying a 'tactical approach' to applying for nursing & midwifery courses.
    I hope this helps & good luck with everything.
