    A bit more detail would help... what do you want to do at university? Which universities are you considering. Is this for entry in 2017, in which case you have until 15th Jan to complete your application...

    And most universities don't allow UCAS points from "irrelevant" subjects/courses anyway.

    University admissions isn't like a computer game where you can rack up your XP and automatically level up/get a place.

    If you don't meet or have the chance to meet the entry requirements for a specific course then you need to contact the university concerned and ask them what qualifications/experience would benefit your application.

    Critical Thinking and General Studies are often excluded from offers. Also the OP asked for something to do "in a week"...

    Better to focus on your main A-levels (or equivalents).
