So I have recently decided to do a geography degree at uni, but I'm worried that I don't have many geography related things to put in my PS. I am currently doing Advanced Higher geography (I live in Scotland) and I am going to enter the RGS young geographers competition this year, so I can talk about that. I have also been doing volunteering for 2 years, doing work experience in a primary school and I have a part time job. Been trying to get some work experience but my school isn't doing much to help, tried emailing places but hasn't come to much. Just wondering is what I'm doing enough or should I keep looking for things to do?

Thanks

Read some stuff related to the subject (proper academic stuff, even if it's just a chapter or two) and mention that, and then use your other experiences to prove skills (working independently, all the generic stuff etc etc).

If you can get subject-related experience that's great but it's really just about proving you're a well-rounded individual who loves geography. Hope this helps
