    I'm a year 12 student who would like to apply to medicine, studying chemistry, biology, maths and English lit.
    Currently I am working on getting my voluntary and work experience, but I'm worried I don't have much to write about for my extracurricular activities.
    I enjoy most activities but I'm not that sporty. What are other hopeful applicants doing that is non-academic?

    Thank you😃

    A lot of places don't put too much emphasis on ECs, they only check if you actually have any so they know you're not some sad person who only sits at home and studies. If you did DofE or play an instrument or like to draw, etc. then that's fine for most unis, just make sure you check the individual requirements when you start applying
