I've just got my form to apply for a HND in midwifery/nursing, and have filled it in all apart from the 'personal statement' section. As i'm a 'mature' (hee hee) student we didn't have them when I left school and haven't a clue what to do. Then I've had a quick look at some of the threads here and there is talk of 'points'.........what are they? Like I said, I'm sort of lost here. I've spent 3 years getting GCSE's in the hope I'll be accepted, but everyone else seems to be talking A and AS levels. Do uni's accept people with just GCSe's?

I dont think youll get onto HND Nursing with GCSEs you may need an a level pass or two depending on the college u want to apply to.

As the above says i would recommend an access course.

hiya im going to uni nxt yr to do nursing hopefully.
I am currently studying AVCE Health and social care, AS Citizenship, NCFE Counselling and GCSE English i also have GNVQ Intermediate.

My friend is applying to do midwifery but has been told that most uni's take 10-25 students a year and take over 500 applications for the course so i should imagine they are gonna be pretty strict about who they take when they have so many applicants to choose from. My friend has been told she will need CC or above in the HSC plus GCSE English and Maths at C or above and a science subject. She already has 8 GCSE's A-C and is now studying for AVCE HSC, AS Citizenship, NCFE Counselling. She also has worked at a maternity hospital and been a birthing partner.
Would it not be better for you to do an Access Course?
