    What additional stuff should I do to put on my personal statement. I know of things like NCS and work experience but is there anything else?

    hobbies, anything that makes you stand out, achievements, dofe any prefect roles or display of leadership, anything like volunteer work/a job, however only include it if you can tie it in to your course, as it has to be relevant. For example if you do a musical instrument say what grade you are and how this shows you have commitment, perseverance and attention to detail which would be great skills to apply to your possible corse of *insert course* e.g. criminology.
