What extra-curriculars would you recommend for a good medicine personal statement?

I am currently doing AS and I would like to apply to medicine next year. This year is my only chance to participate in something long-term and I would like for it to be an activity that will hugely benefit my application.All advice is greatly appreciated

If you are not already involved in anything, don't waste your time starting a sport or a hobby now. Use your remaining months wisely and make sure you get A*s and score highly on your UCAT or BMAT because they are the ACTUAL requirements, not extra curricular activities.

Obviously, if you are representing England in U19 Rugby, Football and Cricket and you're asking us which one you should put, it's a different matter.

Have you done any work shadowing yet or volunteering (to show the skills needed for medicine)?
