Hi @isma!!!,
Try not to worry, I’m sure you’re doing great!

I’ve checked the general entry requirements for Adult Nursing here at BCU and 120 UCAS points are needed for 2023/2024 entry. You can calculate a rough guide of how many UCAS points you may achieve from your A Levels using this link below…

Here is the page about the Nursing entry requirements…
https://www.bcu.ac.uk/nursing-and-midwifery/courses/nursing-adult-child-dual-msci-2023-24#entry_requirements

It mentions that all aspects of the application process, including your personal statement and interview are all considered for your acceptance onto the course. If you don’t get the results you were hoping for on results day, give the university a call as you can discuss your results with them to see if you can still be accepted onto the course. And of course, clearing is always an option as well if you need it. But think positive! And enjoy your summer after working so hard on your exams.

Hi,

Thank you for your response :smile:
I just wanted to ask where I can find statistics of people being accepted onto the course for Birmingham City University’s adult nursing course and what qualifications or ucas points they were able to get on the course with
i don’t think I’ve managed to get 120 UCAS points 😭
is there absolutely no way u can get onto the course with lower ucas points?

Hi @isma!!!

As I mentioned above, if your grades don't meet your offer requirements on results day, the first thing I would do is check your UCAS account to see if you've been accepted with your grades and give the university a call. You can discuss your grades and if you can still be accepted onto the course. The acceptance process is also based on your personal statement and interview, so you may still be accepted.

I would hate for you to be stressing over the summer so I think it would be worth giving the admissions team a call before results day, as they can offer some more in depth advice about your grades and acceptance to BCU. Here is the number: +44 (0)121 331 6295
If you explain your situation like you have above, they can give you some more help on what might happen if you don't meet the entry requirements.

Something else you could consider is the Nursing and Midwifery Foundation year at BCU. This is a great option for students who don't quite meet the entry requirements and you can progress onto the BA(Hons) degree afterwards.
Here is the webpage about the foundation year: https://www.bcu.ac.uk/nursing-and-midwifery/foundation-nursing-and-midwifery-2023-24#overview
I think it's definitely worth a look as an option.

Hope this helps,
Emily
