Can you advise this student nurse?
“I did well in my A-levels but have really struggled to get my head round writing essays at uni – my first three marks were 25%, 38% and 38%. Three fails. Then I failed two of them again the second time round.
“I’ve loved placement and my mentors have been really pleased with me but my university won’t let me carry on into second year and want me to repeat the year.
“I’m clearly never going to get my head around referencing, but I thought being caring was more important. If I can’t do the academic side of nursing, is it even worth me carrying on with the course?
“I know my tutor thinks I should drop out.”
