    Be confident and answer each question as fully as possible. Maybe bring a few awards or things you have received from things related to what you want to do at A-Level and further on to make you stand out. Also, don't be afraid to show who you are, they see loads of other candidates answering with "I am a good learner" "I have brilliant GCSEs" and that's great if you are those things but don't let that define you to them, tell them about your hobbies and interests if the opportunity arises. Also, don't be afraid to ask questions, it shows you have researched the sixth form. Normally questions are things like "Why this sixth form?" "What can you do to make a difference to our school?" "Why are you thinking about the A Levels you have chosen?" etc. Good luck.

    If you don't do extra-curricular activities then I would say something like "unfortunately, do to my revision schedule I have been unable to take up any extra curricular activities as I feel that my exams should be my priority at present"
