    DISCUSSION: What is everyone doing EC-wise to make themselves "stand out" when applying to universities? Let's get some inspiration rollingggggg
    I'm applying for Geography at Exeter, Durham, Manchester, UEA (w/ International Development) and Royal Holloway (w/ Politics and IR).

    - London 2012 volunteer
    - Teaching assistant within Geography department
    - Member of/volunteered for the anti-poverty organisation ONE
    - South African exchange programme leader
    - Member of RGS and GA
    - Eton College summer school
    - Taster courses
    - Attending lectures in development at the LSE in September
    - Produced short films on sustainability, including one on a revolutionary new shack in South Africa.
    - Online course in GIS by Penn State University

    I might be starting lessons in Afrikaans soon too, and possibly taking a gap year to do more work in the fields of international development and environmental sustainability.

    Chilling is fun too! I've done too much of it though ah, 2 weeks it quite a while really! Are you excited to go back?

    I'm not either, especially on this thread! I'm trying to use them more this year. I've been allowed to use both this thread and the year 12 one!
    Idk really, it's very weird to think that it's going to be my final ever year at school so I'll make the most of it Having said that, I really can't wait to leave!

    Cool! So are you just going to focus on AS or are you going to do so,e A2 modules as well?

    yeah, I feel the same! But 2 years till uni sounds quite a while! What are you planning on doing on your gap year?

    I'm just focussing on AS becuase I'm not going to do any of the A2 modules this year. If the Jan exams still existed I might have actually resat a couple full AS subjects! But it does get a bit complicated.

    If you want to do Economics BSc then it mostly won't matter if you haven't done the A level. They're mainly looking for maths

    You don't need Economics A Level to do an Economics degree, but it does help.

    yeah, I do Maths and further maths, but the other two options are random..

    If I recall correctly, they said that economics is recommended but not essential so you should have a good shot still, provided your UMS is high.

    Not that insane- I find it manageable because of the huge overlap between maths and further maths :cool:

    " Economics and Further Mathematics are considered useful preparation but are not essential. A Level Business Studies can be helpful if you are unable to take Economics." - Cambridge. It does also say you should check specific college requirements for more details
