    I'm a pretty average student, my GCSE scores were not as good as I wanted them to and I didn't pass them all, I have 6 GCSE's. Because of this I could only do 3 alevels and frankly I'm feeling pretty stupid. I have never been a model student although I did turn it around in year 10 or so I thought. I want to apply to the university of Manchester and I have interest in law and politics, with my results I don't think I'll be able to get into university and I don't know what to do. I'm thinking of doing some volunteer work or possibly apply for an apprenticeship after college.
    I really some tips on how to make my CV look good, already in considering learning a language, and playing the piano....
    HEELLLP!!
    P.s
    I'm half way through my AS levels

    If you started the new a level courses from September 2015 then you won't be the only one doing 3 a levels because of the reforms.

    You could volunteer at a charity shop, do a something like the Duke of Edinburgh award/National Citizen Service, take classes for something, join clubs, do college enrichment stuff, school projects or competitions, something like school council etc.
