You should be fine if you had atleast 4 GCSE at a grade 4. Nursing is a bit flexible compared to other health careers (which will require science in both gcse/btec/alevel) but doing Health and soc care will help ur chances of doing nursing.

I have 5 GCSEs including maths and English , so by doing health and social since it is mixed with science should this help me ? Or do you think the university’s will look mainly at my GCSEs

No they look at both,my friend got online 3 GCSE but failed her maths and sciences and did BTEC and still got into nursing this year. The key is u have to look for university that would accept your results.

Hi!

If you're getting the required points then you should be able to get in, as you've met their requirements. However, I would still contact the universities that you want to apply for and double check. Also, if you contact them they might also be able to offer you some advice about how to boost your application.

I hope this helps and good luck!

There seem to be a lot of replies regarding nursing but you mention midwifery in your original post, so to give you a perspective on Midwifery it tends to be a more competitive course than some fields of Nursing and entry requirements tend to be more strict (for Nursing, its often just a requirement to have GCSE Maths & English, however most universities for Midwifery will want a Science qualification at GCSE as well.) Although universities will often be accommodating in terms of alternative entry requirements (eg. some universities will accept Functional Skills instead of GCSE), it's unlikely that they will waiver an entire entry requirement especially in a course as competitive as Midwifery.
It helps to contact the uni directly to discuss your situation, and also to speak with your college as well as they may be able to offer you a resit of your GCSE if necessary.
