    Might sound a bit stupid, but I always have a problem putting stuff into the wrong headings.

    For example, trading in the stock market would that go under Work Experience or Extra-Curricular Activities?

    You started about 4 threads in the last week in this forum and I was even the person that helped you out in one of them http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1600807. I took 10 mins of my own time to research for you.

    Learn some manners.

    You've posted a handful of considerably more moronic posts over the past couple of weeks.

    Trading on your own account would be an EC.

    As [email protected] has stated, WE is far more important in terms of ECs in getting through the door at least, but ECs (especially sport) would help you gel with the team. Successful trading on your own account would likely make up for a lack of work experience IMO, particularly if you did well.

    Love the enthusiasm, but you might be taking it a step too far.

    Don't apologise, just find out for yourself if the information's there.

    Sure; fair amount of research which I ultimately presented, lots of learning and reading, built a coverage matrix, built a heatmap (and a little photocopying). Probably more valuable was getting a chance to speak with and spend a bit of time with the people who actually lived it and just get a feel for what it was like.
