    Hey, I'm in the same position, I've been given advice from some chem eng students I know,
    Basically what I've been told is to make a list of everything you've done, like Duke of Edinburgh or team sports you play, musical instruments you okay etc.., and explain how they have helped develop you as a person. But I also got told not not mention the same quality more than once as you are limited in the amount you are allowed to write(at least you are in scotland)

    It's fine to talk a little about things like that. But 70% or so should be about your interest and passion for the subject you are applying for. Nearly everyone has DoE, it won't make you stand out as a potential engineer, unless you can tie it back to your subject.
