I didn't get into my firm for nursing because my a level grades were too low. I got into a uni but I've never been to an open day here and I will be commuting as it is quite close. I ha dmt heart set on my firm. When people say your a levels don't matter when you get into nursing, what do they mean? If I'm competing with someone else for a job and they've got much higher grades then me than ofcourse they do matter and they will take them?

your skills and qualities as a nurse will matter much more

A-Levels? No one cares about them after you start university.

They certainly don't in Medicine, even for competitive specialties, so I don't see why that would be the case for nursing.

Thank you I was ashamed of my a level results and wasn't proud of them but if they don't matter in nursing, which is what I want to do, then theirs no point.

I got CCD in my A levels. The requirements for my job as a RN on qualifying? 1) satisfactory application 2) pass the interview 3) satisfactory DBS/occupational health checks 4) got asked 5 times before I'd received them for proof of my NMC registration and degree certificate. Not a single mention of A levels at all. Pass your assignments and do well in placements and you'll be fine.

your pre uni stuff is of no importance. your degree grade is also of little importance. your references are important. being a good nurse is not demonstrated by a bit of paper.
