Hi so I’ve applied for uni this September to do history but I’ve thrown a bit of a wobbler and have decided it’s not what I want to do. Midwifery had always been something I’m interested in and I’m just curious of how to get into it. I don’t have science a level which obviously I know is a problem. I’m taking a year out to work anyway so if doing a biology a level within that worth it? Would doing that and trying to get work experience in healthcare be an option if wanting to apply for 2022? I know it’s very competitive. Any feedback would be great thanks

Not having biology A-level doesn't have to be a problem, some universities do not require it, but you may have to accept that you can't necessarily go to your dream university because of it. It could be worth applying through clearing this year if there are places available, but don't pin your hopes on it. You're probably better off taking a year out to get experience in a maternity ward and then applying next year, and potentially doing either biology A-level (or another science) or an access course this year while you wait to reapply

Not every university require biology but these are few and far between which ones don't.

I already sent her a verrry long detail message on all things that she can possibly do with this. Including where to try for experience as well for year or so till eventually get onto the course.

Tried to make that bit clear while also correcting OP but oh well. Apologies if you feel I'm repeating what you've already said but unfortunately private messages are exactly that - private, and therefore I cannot see what you have and haven't written.

Hi friend x

Don't take it to heart ok as what you sort of said is agreeable for OP ok. I apologies to if you feel I should have shared my private information.
I only think it was best to PM her as I won't share certain private information to everyone here as I would had done exactly same to you if you were asking the question OP asked. Reason why there's options of PM messaging.
I don't know what if any experience you got except researching it up.
