    I know this sounds pretty dumb but I'm confused as to what is classed as EC activity. My teachers say EC activities are the things you do extra, but only in school. Like, playing sport for school or being in the school council. Yet, other people are saying being committed to a sport out of school or playing an instrument counts as an EC activity.
    I'm just curious, that's all.

    Anything you do that your teachers/school don't force you to, in or out of school.

    Extracurriculars are things you do that the school doesn't force you to do on pain of death. Eg. Being in the school choir = extracurricular activity. Doing squash outside of school = extracurricular activity.

    Basically, if it's not on your timetable at school but you do it anyway, it's extracurricular.
