I am starting from complete scratch as I haven't studied at all and I didn't get an OP (am i dreaming thinking i can get in to study?) I am from QLD and I have no idea where to start.
Have I missed out for this year? I really want to start as soon as I can. I only just decided to study and I am kicking myself I didn't decide last year.
I want to study either midwifery (I want to study in Logan) or paramedic (I'm not sure where I can study for this one).
I have young (none School age) 3 children and I would like to study either part time or distance Ed as i live an hour from the closest uni.
I've tried looking on QTAC but have no idea what it all means.
What is the test you need to do if you haven't got an OP?
Any help or guidance will be much appreciated.

Have I missed to boat to study this year?

You haven't missed the boat, many uni's do midyear entry.
ACU does paramedicine and mid, not sure if by distance.
UniSA does midwifery by distance and entry is handled through SATAC.
Did you finish high school and get a score? If not you may have to do a tertiary bridging course. CDU offers these by distance education.
That's as much as I know about, hope it helps.

I was told I passed the entry mark for Vet nursing and letters have just gone out and my mark was 50 and passing was 54!! im so angry coz i was told i would get in, and what makes it even worse is theres no midyear entry for this course. if u can go mid year i'd say giv it a shot. worth asking if they do it.

Even with the drop in rank/op, getting in on 2nd round will be tough.
If you don't want to do a bridging course, you can sit the STAT and do a PCA (5 pages, essay style, answering their questions and showing how you have addressed them- ie/ having not studied in a while, so taking a bridging course to polish up on writing and research skills, resulting in confidence when it comes to assignments and exams etc)

Hi kb90 - ask the uni/tafe if they have a waitlist for places if others should drop out. If they have a set intake and there are drop outs or non-acceptances within the first couple of weeks they may be willing to take on those that were close - worth a shot.
Do you have a back-up study plan?
