Our school has now started accepting applications for Prefects, Senior Prefects and Head Boy/Girl. I know that I definitely want to apply to be a prefect but don’t know about being head girl. I am a confident person but don’t particularly enjoy speaking in front of people. Would anyone be able to give advice on what they think I should do and whether I should just stop worrying and go for it?

I was offered to be a prefect back in year 11 but declined the offer because being a prefect is a rip off really, the school makes you do half of their work for free basically, that badge you get to wear isn't worth a bag of ****

None of the head boy/girl team from my school got Oxbridge. My school is usually a large contributer of Oxbridge students, so says something about becoming a Head boy/girl... It doesn't help much.

yup and honestly I can't see it affecting an application at all; if you do decide to write it in your ps its probably gonna be less than a line at the end and im sure unis wont care about it

I think they would prefer someone who is interested in the course, over a head of whatever.

Honestly just go for it, you might regret it if you don’t. At least you can say you did it if you don’t get it (which I highly doubt )

I'm a current HG and I'd say it's probably a really good idea to go for it. It did end up in my personal statement and it's been in every work experience and degree apprenticeship application I've put in. For me, it's been really useful because I've been googled a few times by potential employers and that's one of the things that shows up, as well as providing a talking point as part of my CV.

Quite honestly, I love public speaking, and giving a speech was part of the application process, but as soon as I got the post every speech I've given since has been written on a piece of paper and all I've had to do is read. If you're scared of public speaking or don't think you're very good, still apply because it'll be an opportunity for you to hopefully overcome those fears.
