    I know that psychology is a hard to get into course, and with the grades i have not being as high as i need, (although i do plan to retake), then my PS needs to be really good. I'm trying to find a good unusual opening so that i stand out but my main question is, how do i relate my extra-curicular stuff to the course? I'm a keen horse rider, do drama, go sailing, work in an animal shelter and did some community work at a playgroup. I'm also planning to take a gap year and go abroad, porbably to africa, and do some voluntary work. I just don't know how i can relate all this to the course that i want to do :confused: please help!!

    Hate to say that for most of that stuff you can't actually relate it to psychology... The playgroup thing can easily be related, though. I did something similar and I applied for psychology, blagging on about how I could relate aspects of my A level course to the behaviour of the children.

    I guess with the rest of that stuff it makes you into a well-rounded person but I would spend more time talking about psychology and the playgroup thing. As for the unusual opening I can't really offer much advice: mine was pretty 'blah.'
