Are there any books you've read? If not, you could read some (like popular science books, you don't have to go reading anything heavy and academic)? Or subscribe/regularly read a science magazine such as New Scientist. Any sort of demonstration of interest or awareness of current issues in biology would be good.

You could also look at seeing if you were able to do any biology-related work experience (although opportunities for that at your level would be limited) or whether there were any sort of programme or activities you could get involved in encouraging/working with getting younger kids interested in science?

There's not a lot you CAN do for a lot of areas of science, and universities know that, so showing a keen interest with your reading is probably the most achievable.
