I recently just picked my A - levels i want to study at college, however i was unable to pick biology because i didn't do as well as i could. So, i ended up picking English lit and English lang as well as geology and psychology. Can i still apply for a midwife course in UoB with these A- Levels? Are there any other subjects i should have chosen over geology?

Psychology should be fine. If you wanted to change geology pick sociology

Midwifery degree courses usually require three A levels or equivalent level 3 qualifications, in addition to GCSEs and evidence of literacy and numeracy. A levels or level 3 qualifications in the sciences tend to be preferred, and some universities require a qualification in biology.
These were the requirements I found - (biology, chemistry, algebra I/II, physics, statistics, and psychology)

Thank you for your help. Do you think I could still get in with just chemistry and psychology?

Umm I'm not sure and I think it's safer to do around 3 subjects if you could because it widens your range in case you change your mind and it helps if you're unsure. Most of these university sites just require you to do a "science", I searched around a bit, they say biology will be required by some but I think chemistry or biology and psychology will be fine to be honest.

This university in manchester says:
ABB including a science (e.g. Biology or Chemistry). Applicants who are not studying biology or chemistry A level may apply if they are studying another relevant subject (e.g. Psychology, Sociology or Geography). A typical offer for applicants studying a related subject not including biology or chemistry are set at AAB. Please contact admissions office to ask about other relevant subjects.
