Hello, so I just changed Chemistry to Health and Social Care as I was not sure if I could handle both Biology and Chemistry, so now I am doing Biology, Psychology and Health & Social Care.

I want to go into midwifery but I’m not certain whether I could with these. (I know a Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care would allow me to be one but I’m too far into college to drop all my subjects and catching up would be a hassle)

I don’t know what other career I could go into with these A Levels cause I don’t only want to look at midwifery, do you know what I could possibly try look into?

Please help.

Hello, I teach on a Nursing and Midwifery Access program so I might be able to help.

As well as doing relevant level 3's for midwifery you need to have good GCSE's or a Level 2 equivalent in English and Maths. You do need science too, but your Level 3 would cover that area.

I would speak to the admissions tutor at your local University as Midwifery is very very competitive. A Midwifery Access program would have a little bit more sciency stuff on it with Human Biology, Health Science, and a social science like Psychology or health studies.

If you wanted to pursue Psychology, it is a brilliant degree to do, however the employment market is saturated with people with Psychology degree's - to be a fully qualified Psychologist you need to do doctorate level study. You could maybe do a Psychology degree and then teach it with a PGCE afterwards

There are a lot of job opportunities in the social work sector, you might consider a degree in that, or doing a degree like psychology and doing your masters in Social Work - quite a few people try that option

Another career you could consider is becoming a Paramedic, with those A-levels, meeting university entry requirements and relevant experience you would definitely be considered for the course
