    I want to study biology at uni and I'll be applying for oxford, durham, York, Warwick and either birmingham or bath.
    firstly, many websites of the uni say I should do some kind of experience or volunteering. I have no idea what to do for this...I'm applying for uni at the end of the year so it's kind of too late.
    the. There's extracurricular activities in general. At the moment I don't do anything, and wouldn't it be irrelevant to talk about stuff I did when I was younger?
    any help would be great

    I too have the problem of not having any extracurricular activities. I look forward to someone answering your question as I too have the same concern.

    Do you play Computer Games? That's an activity. Do you walk to the bus stop? Do you shop? Do you read?

    They're just looking for things that make you you... tell them you make model airplanes (Shows attention to detail) Tell them you enjoy discovering new things (Even if it's just the new ale at the pub) This is just your time to show another human that you're capable enough to do the course. I for instance have Watersports (I was a Cox, also like boogie boarding...) Reading (Wikipedia articles count! And Star Wars books on the toilet) Active on several online forums and gaming Clans, meeting for regular training. Play computer games RPG's and adventure ones. Planned gig nights with my mates and promoted them. I do Airsoft as well.

    If you did things when you were younger... great... they still count, would you continue them or pick them back up?
