What a levels should I take?

I’d like to go into midwifery / childrens nursing.
I don’t know if I should take lvl 3 health and social care. Or 3 a lvls?
I’m not an expert but feel A levels would give you potentially more options of university choices. Look at the entry requirements of some universities you are thinking of applying to to see if they accept level 3s.

Well done for thinking about doing midwifing.

Below are the minimum entry requirements for midwifing at universities in all UK universities because you didn't say what part of the UK you want to study about, but each university has there own entry requirements so I would suggest that you look at the chosen universities the you may want to study midwifing at and see what there entry requirements are okay.

Entry requirements
A levels Entry requirements range from BCC to ABB, with the universities and colleges most commonly asking for ABB.

Scottish Highers Entry requirements for Highers (the most common qualification) range from BBBC to AAABB, with universities or colleges most frequently requiring BBBC. Occasionally, universities ask for Advanced Highers to supplement Highers. If Advanced Highers are requested, universities or colleges typically ask for AB.

Vocational courses Other Level 3/Level 6 qualifications (e.g. Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma, or an SCQF Level 6) may be accepted as an alternative to A levels/Highers by some providers. It’s essential that you check alternative entry requirements with universities or colleges.



Most universities requires you to have English, Math's and Biology as the three main ones and there's other universities that only requires you to have a science subject hence why I said look at your own chosen universities for there own entry requirements so that you know exactly what you will be needing. Level 3 health and social care usually allow you access to a university for any nursing degree but check everything out.
