    Hiya all :D

    I am (fingers crossed) going to be starting my access to nursing course this september *excited* but my question is, when I left school I didn't take any exams which I completely regret now but not going to dwell on it as can't change the past and I have learnt from my mistakes.
    I have been told that I have to apply for hull university to do the midwifery course for 2010 from either sept 08 - march 09 apparently I can do this while on the access course? I have been told that if I pass the access course at level 3 then I only need 13 more points to qualify for midwifery... Does anybody know how the points system work or how if I don't pass any higher than a level 3 I can agin these extra 13 points?
    Thank you
    Donna

    Hi Donna,

    You can apply for midwifery while still doing the access course, that's what I did,

    Can't help with regard to the points, that system wasn't used at my college, we either passed or failed. It was introduced for the next group of students. Sorry, but I am sure someone on here will be able to hep.

    Good luck with your course.

    That sound confusing! :) I'm studying access at the mo and have applied this year (still waiting to hear from Swansea)

    In my College the access allows you to gain up to 72 points, which means getting a level 3 on all assignments, most uni's i think ask for 45 - 63 points it varies, if you left school with no exams, maybe it would benifit you to get your GCSE maths? I'm not sure but i know a few girls on my course are doing that.....best to check with the uni and your college as i know all access courses are slightly different. Hope this helps, welcome to the site and good luck:) x

    I'm not sure but I think Hull take applications direct and you'd be applying a year in advance... so in the academic year of 2008-2009 you're actually applying for 2010.

    Also, I believe Hull want a huge amount of credits at level three for midwifery. 72 if I recall. You will probably also need Maths and English GCSE at grade C or above xx

    As far as I know, most uni's including all the ones I looked at were asking for Access plus C or above in GCSE English and Maths! Hope this helps and good luck!

    as part of my access course we were able to do GCSE maths and english so iwas lucky that i didn't have to do any extra work or courses,
    I am not sure if your collage will do the maths and english as part of your course you will have to ask them! I no that this is the last year my collage was running the course this way!

    Access courses usually get you all the points you need but you will have to have the other qaulifactions too.... x x

    Hope this helped and not confused you x x

    Thank you gor your replies I re read the course information and this is what it says: The course currently consists of the following subjects: Core Study Skills, Human Biology, English, Business Environment, Computing Studies, Environmental Studies, History, Sociology, Social Policy and Psychology. We also offer GCSE equivalents in English and Maths for those wishing to go on to higher education.
    So I am guessing that I mention I want to do the extra english and maths when i get my interview.
