Basically, in year 12 I didn't care too much about the future and as a result I failed to look for and apply for any summer placements related to science or physics.
Now that I am writing my personal statement its looking pretty desperate as I have nothing to say, to top it off I just barely scraped an A in my Physics AS , getting high Bs in all my other subjects.
My first choice university would be St. Andrews but I'm worried that with my lack of extra curricular physics experience I'll be at a major disadvantage.
Got any suggestions guys?
PS: I did however buy two pretty hefty physics books to read, the Hidden Unity in Nature's Laws, and Black Holes and Time Warps. Could these be a good way to compensate for my extra curriculars?

Old Mum unearthed a blog about what physics admission tutors say they're looking for in a P.S. http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...700&highlight=
maybe going to a public lecture or joining a local astronomy group would give you something to talk about
and tbh if you're interested in astronomy a lot of the journal articles are open access
