    Is there any advice you can give to people looking to apply to University? What kind of extracurricular should they undertake? Which courses at GCSE and A-level give them the best chance of getting in?

    Can't help you if you don't say what course you want to do or may be interested in. Also you should actually look at uni websites themselves.

    I've researched the course I would like to take, it's chemical engineering, which requires you to take either Natural sciences or Engineering in the first year, I know exactly which subjects and grades to get at A-level, I was wondering if there is anything extra that someone could recommend to boost my chances of being accepted?

    Some volunteer work would probably boost your chances a fair bit.

    You probably need to get this thread moved to the Oxbridge subforum - then Oxbridge people will notice your thread and be able to answer. (I am an Oxbridge person who happened to see this thread but am not a scientist, so can't really help.)
