    I'm just starting my A2s and at uni I am hoping to do a joint course of Economics and Geography. I'm already doing DofE and Young Enterprise, but want to do something in the summer to do with geography and/or economics.

    Has anyone got any ideas of what I can do in the six weeks holidays. This is a vague specification:

    1) open to 16 year olds
    2) weekdays only
    3) short-term (i.e 6wks hols)
    4) in the field of geography/economics
    5) looks good on UCAS

    I've got know idea what I can do, who to approach or where to look?
    Help Please?


    make up stories for UCAS.

    and btw, Unis only look at your predicted grades, gcse and occasionally first and last paragraph of personal st..

    unless you got a summer job in a respected org. like BBC its not worth putting in the application form. and if you do, make people notice. write it as bold.

    at this stage even if your purpose is not for UCAS form, there isnt much opportunity out there
