Rejected, now to apply for something else?Watch
Would this go against her? Does anyone have any success stories?
She should work on her grades for now. And, most importantly only apply for something she wants to do!
Thank you for the replies so far. She basically said, once she had sent her application off - she doubted midwifery, as her background is in caring (she has some care experience). Feedback confirmed her doubts, as they questioned her committment to the midwifery role? Perhaps her personal statement reflected this...... Going off feedback, could she apply in September for nursing instead. Even though she was rejected from Midwifery this cycle? f Cx
She could also wait and apply for a place on a nursing course through clearing which opens in Summer for Universities. You can apply for any course that has spaces via clearing as long as you haven’t already applied for it. So if she has been rejected for midwifery she could still apply to unis via clearing for nursing courses that have spaces in clearing. Clearing is typically the start of July to end of October.
Yes she can apply next year for Nursing with a different PS but this also has high rejection rates so it is worth being prepared for. She could look at different roles in the health service or outside. She could even apply for nursing now under extra and she could ask the university whether they would accept an alternative Personal Statement related to nursing but she needs to de aware of the risk of rejection Ring the university to see if they are still taking applications and whether it would be worth her applying. She can check ucas course search for courses with vacancies first and act on that.
