I have completed a BA in Philosophy, but enetered the course through completing a foundation degree; both of which amount to 0 UCAS points. After doing a little research it is clear that the 180 point requirement is non-negotiable, be it with a degree or without. I will be turning 28 next month and know that it has long since passed the time I sorted a career out and with the potential for an age cap on entrants I know that time is of the essence. Are there any qualifications that I can gain within the RN prior to training that would allow me entrance into officer training? Or is it possible to get one or two a-levels funded under contract that they be completed in time for me to make entrance before the age cap, and that I would commit to signing up for a certain amount of service? I don't think these questions are too stooopid, perhaps somewhat naive, but any help or pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. All the best, Danny.
