    As part of my Chemistry A Level Techniquest has given me the opportunity to do 70 hours of a task with a group and if done correctly I could gain a Gold CREST award which can be put on my CV for Uni.

    As part of my gold CREST award I must do talks to High Schools and primary school children on why Chemistry is fun but also important to everyday life. I thought this could be really enjoyable but....

    I am also doing a Silver Duke of Edinburgh at the same time. I want to take Science related courses in University and revising for A Levels at the same time as doing a GOLD CREST award and Duke of Edinburgh seems really difficult.

    I was thinking I should drop one but which one should I drop?

    Is it even possible to do revision, and both challenges at the same time?

    Which is better to put on a CV?

    What option gives me more life skills?

    DoFE can probably be done with the same activities as your CREST award, and leave the expeditions until after you've done exams
