    If you have experience managing something in school (Clubs) or having a leadership position ( Head boy?) then you could mention that. Or if you've taken part in any business/banking related competitions or initiatives
    I had a hard time trying to think of what to put on my CV last year; but things like these help.

    You should probably wait until September to apply for Spring Weeks in 2016. No point applying now.

    Where are thinking of applying to?

    CV tip: look for situations where you've held responsibility - could be absolutely anything. Focus on how successful you've been (make sure to quantify them) in these situations.

    It's a scholarship thing, deadline is this Friday

    Any responsibility I've ever had has never been quantifiable damn it

    Seeing as it's this week I can't get involved in anything now, trying to think of anything and I can't, without going back into year 11 territory

    I didn't have much law related experience either
    Just write about the skills you picked up from these; time management, taking instructions, meeting deadlines, research skills, etc
    To show you have a sense of responsibility

    Okay thank you!

    Do you think they'd want a reference on request? If I put it down

    Also, do I somehow slip in Cambridge offer?

    I'm not sure about that; I wasn't asked

    Hell yes; but make sure it follows the format. Do you have an "accomplishments" section?

    Yep; so your last bullet point ( or however you're writing it) could be "holds an offer from Cambridge and is hoping to study... "
