    I know that universities dont only look at grades but also outside things.

    But the thing is i only have a few things, like being a prefect at my previous school, and i've applied to work as voluntary in a library. Should i try and find more things to do?

    Try to at least make it relevant to what you want to study at uni. They don't care about extra curricular things such as DofE and especially being a Prefect. Instead try to read around the subject as this will improve you personal statement much more since it shows passion for the subject.
