    Basically, I started AS-Levels last month, and I was advised that I should have loads of work experience and do some voluntary work. I will be applying for Engineering in the future. So could you guys suggest some organisations that may give me voluntary work around the field of Chemistry, Physics and Maths.(BTW those are the subjects I'm doing at AS)

    And Thank you for your time to answer my question.

    You have been advised incorrectly. Neither work or voluntary experience are necessary at your stage and will play little role in securing a place at university. What you need are high enough grades, and your efforts should be primarily directed at this. If you can secure something related, that is fine, but if not, don't worry. It is exceedingly hard to come by and very few students have any.
