I am currently in year 12. I received 11 A*'s in my GCSE's and for A-Level i am studying maths, economics, and biology in addition to an EPQ and an AS in further maths (which i will be doing next year).
I have work experience with a wealth management firm, am subscribed to the economist, have completed 3 MOOC's (two of which relate to economics) and am doing wider reading around both maths and economics. I am also participating in virtual trading.
What other things do i need to be doing in order to stand out from everyone else and obtain a place to study economics at cambridge besides further wider reading?
Any advice would be appriciated
What are the downsides?
