It does not.

An extended diploma is equivalent to three a-levels. A national diploma is equivalent to one.

So I want to do midwifery so if I do an extended diploma in health and social does that mean I don’t need to do any other subjects?

Hey yes it does equate to 3 A Levels. hence why the assignments and exams are hard. You will be able to progress on to uni as I’m currently in uni having completed the HSC course. 😊.

It ultimately depends on what one you want to get into long term. Adult nursing is obviously more targeted towards focusing upon the elderly though no limitation and midwifery obviously pregnant woman.

Hope that helps. 😊
