    Hi everyone!
    I am going to commence with my personal statement soon and was wondering whether to include that I was the captain of my school football and cricket teams at u-15 and u-13 levels? Would this be deemed as a viable thing to write about, or a waste of space? I am also part of the Ccf and am a sergeant; should I write about this too or is the rank too low to be viewed as impressive?
    Also should I do d of e or ncs; I have currently done neither, so haven't even a bronze in the Duke of Edinburgh award

    Only mention things from the last two years, at most. You can mention CCF briefly, but it's unlikely to impress the admissions tutors (regardless of what rank you are) - their main focus is your interest in the course
