i know i am probably being impatient but i sent my uni application off on 24th of december....i've still not heard a peep! all i've had is the letter from UCAS saying they had recieved my application and gave me the code so i can check it online.
but when i check online all it says is 'you're application has been sent off for consideration'

i want to hear something! even if its that i've not got in!

    Some of my friends are still waiting, one sent hers off the day before the deadline and has only heard back from 1 so far.

    its just driving me crazy with the waiting! and now im starting to worry that maybe the application didnt go through properly or something!

    Don't worry. It can take a while. I heard from some of my choices about now but my friends didn't hear from theres till March and even April :rolleyes:

    What are you hoping to do at uni? :)

    I'm hoping to go to UEA to do nursing...then midwifery afterwards!

    If you know you want to be a midwife then why dont you train to be one straight off, rather than doing your nurse training first? :chin:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Ohh, I'm training to be a adult nurse too :)
    It's alright...not what I thought. But I suppose you might have different experiances. It is fun when on placement...although 12 hour shifts and 7am starts are a killer :crying:

    Are you hoping to do the 18month top up course? It was in the nursing times today and also a midwife mentioned that many places are making qualified nurses who want to go into midwifery start from the beginning, as they are trying to stop the top up course :rolleyes: . It might change but thats just the situation at the moment.
    Although saying that we always got advised to do adult nursing first then specialise. That way you can work in general and have a wider knowledge, not just limited to peads, midwifery etc :)

    i am doing it this way so that i will have a wider range of jobs which i can do afterwards! also i dont have the grades they are asking for to go straight to midwifery.

    as for the work load/long shifts....i work 12 hours shifts at the moment so that wont be a problem for me and i've already done 18 months at uni on this course 4 years ago so i know what im letting myself in for!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Fair enough. Probably a wise idea with the NHS as it is at the mo!! Good luck. Hope you get offered the place you want :D

    Thats alright then at least you have an idea what to expect! And have some care experiance. I wish I had and hadn't done it straight from college ans school :rolleyes:
    Are you doing the degree or diploma? I'm doing the diploma but contemplating topping up with degree modules in my third year :chin: . Not sure yet, but I don't start my third year yet till May so hopefully will have decided.

    You have nothing to worry about. As your application was in before the deadline, universities have got until the end of March to give you a response. However, due to the early Easter holidays this year, you are almost certain to get a response before then.

    bb are you doing nursing? afaik they take a bit longer with those kind of things *shrug*
