I'd assume it's pretty similar requirements to medicine, in which case you'd do well to do biology, chemistry and possibly a third science subject.

Go onto university websites that offer midwifery and see what their requirements are - but yes biology seems like a good place to start

You could always go for something like psychology [its a awesome lesson but i'm probably bias :p:]
Biology or sociology? Something that you feel relates to midwifery.
Or pick subjects you find interesting, there are always foundation courses to get onto uni courses.

There is also the possibility of a NVQ health and social care diploma? Someone I know it's currently doing it, you have placements etc. I believe it's equivalent to 3 a levels

I'd go to to UCAS or a specific uni website to see what their entry requirements are. I would say it would be good to do biology and chemistry. Plus two others, though i dont think you need to do more than 2 sciences. x

Sciences such as Biology, most respected for midwifery I'd say, would really help you in your application. So choose 2 sciences, the least, or one if some unis accept that(I don't really have much info into midwifery and unis) Also a(or 2) good respected arts subjects such as geography,history, RE or English Literature, if those are something you like or are good at! Also to remember to choose subjects you enjoy!

I'm thinking about doing Midwifery (or Nursing, or maybe even Medicine), and I'm currently taking Biology, Chemistry, Psychology, Geography and Health and Social care (as an accelerated course). I think a good combination would be Biology, Psychology, Health and Social care and 2 subjects that you enjoy? Chemistry would be good.

Girls in my flat do midwifery, try

Biology, psychology, chemistry and any subject you want..

PLUS, you don't really need chemistry too a-level so if you're not a fan you can drop it. Most of the girls in my flat did biology, psychology and english literature...

Also, maybe english language? Or english lit and lang combined? They would probably go well with Biology, Psychology and whatever else you choose.

Yeah I'm doing Health and Social Care for my 5th A level and I didn't do it for GCSE. I didn't even know you could do it at GCSE lol. And most people take 4 AS levels and then carry on 3 to A2 level, but quite a few people take 5 AS levels.

English
Maths
Biology
Chemistry
Physics
Psychology
Sociology
Health and Social Care
Human Biology
Child Care

I would say that these A-Level subjects would be the most relevant to midwifery. And I agree with the other posters that Biology should definitely be one of your choices. Then you should do a minimum of at least 2 others (I recommend 4 AS Levels), but do five if you are feeling adventurous.

Good luck!
