Hi everyone, I just wanted to say hi and introduce myself 😊 my name is Cheryl, I’m a 32 year old mature student hoping to apply for the 2019 intake. I’m a mum of one with another due next month 🙈 some of you may remember seeing ‘the pregnant girl’ at the open day a few weeks ago!
Is anyone going to the evening next week organised by the midwifery society?
You are all so organised, I haven’t started my personal statement yet because in truth I have absolutely no idea where to start! I’ve been out of education for 15 years now so feeling very out of my depth, but I’m determined to give it a shot this year and see where it takes me. x
Hey Cheryl!

Oh wow, 1 month to go! You must be getting excited 😊 do you know what u r having?

Yes I’m going on Tuesday! I’m really looking forward to it. My application is easy to go but im holding off until after the workshop on Tuesday in case something crops up that I could add in. I have been out of education for 8 years now so I wouldn’t worry. I think a lot of us will be in the same boat.

Wishing u the best of luck 😊 x

Hi Terri thanks for your reply!

Yes I’m really excited now! We are having another girl! So 2 girls only 2 years apart!

I’m really looking forward to Tuesday as well! Every part of me is eager apart from the whole application process 🙈 which is obviously the important part. I just need to put some confidence in myself to write this personal statement. I’m also worried about my maths as I don’t think I got the C that they are looking for I think it may have been a D but I have everything else so I’m wondering given my age and the fact I did these exams 15 years ago if they will still consider me or not. So much uncertainty.

See you on Tuesday x

Oh congrats 😊 2 girls, how lovely. I have 1 of each and my youngest (my boy) is absolutely wild haha!

You can email admissions and ask them. To be honest though, I think the maths and English results are the ones they are most strict about. Have you ever done a college course or anything? Sometimes you find that something you done at college will work out as an equivelant to the maths grade you need. Fingers crossed for u x

Haha! My first is the wild one so I’m hoping this second one is slightly calmer 😂

Yes I think it’s maybe looking like I may need to retake maths which is so frustrating! I’m going to go ahead with the application and see where it takes me. If it means applying again next year so be it!

I’ve done a diploma which is the equivalent to 3 A levels but it definitely didn’t include maths. So frustrating when it’s just one grade away and was 15 years ago!

Wishing you lots of luck on your third try!!x

Just made me more determined to get in but it is defo a bit daunting seeing his many other people are just as passionate as me about midwifery. Just need to try and shine on the day if I’m lucky enough to get interview x

Hi Terri,

Yes I did go and loved it as well! I was really encouraged to hear that that the entry numbers had gone up to 100 this year!!

Slightly worried about the whole talking for 5 mins after looking at a picture for 30 seconds tho 🙈 but like you said it’s only something to get nervous about if I’m lucky enough to get an interview 🤷*♀️

Yeh that worried me too. I thought we would be given a step for a hint and asked certain questions on the picture or something 🙈 I’m just hoping I don’t need to go first so I can get an idea of what people say before me haha!

Yeh I was surprised when they said places were up to 100 this year, that’s amazing! I asked a lecturer at the open day and she told me around 87-90 x

Interviews will take place the week of 18th February. You will be interviewed with 9 others and a panel of 3. You will be given a picture to look at and then you will need to talk about the picture for 5 mins. Once everyone has done that then you will have a group discussion to see how you interact and communicate with others. They also said you will know very quickly if you have received a place. I can’t answer your question about hearing about interviews yet as I’ve decided not to apply this year but I’m sure someone else will be able to answer that. Good luck 😊

They said at the workshop that all applications will be looked at after the closing deadline so I assume no one will hear about interviews until after then.

Oh MrsCFP what has made you decide not to apply this year? X
