I want to apply for graduate schemes that are finance related or audit based but not sure if I have enough to stand out.

Admin and Finance Support- 4 months at a GP Surgery
Admin/Technician- Law Department at a local authority for a whole year during my gap year.
7 month tutoring job
5 Month Retail Sales assistant job
Finance intern at a charity (unpaid)
2 x Volunteer Finance assistant at small charities.

Do you think I have a good chance or anything else I should be doing?

I've also been a PASS mentor at university, project leader in my Saturday volunteering work and play for a sports club while training as a football head coach.

Your experiences should be fine. However you also have to bear in mind though that most employers consider personality as well as qualifications and experience alone.

Hi it seems to me you have some good experience, especially related to finance too. Also, concentrate on getting the best degree grade you can and as BritishGirl states, personality can also play a big part. When they interview you, employers want to find out if you will be a good fit for the team and how you relate to others. You might find it useful to use your careers centre to give you advice about making graduate scheme applications and how to approach the interview.
