I really want to study in the UK, however I know that with the short time I have to work on a good application, I need to start making progress now. In the USA everybody has amazing extra curricular’s however, i’m not sure what there is available in the UK that will make me stand out. I currently have 8 years of gymnastics, football and netball, a sports leadership qualification, DofE Bronze (although most people have this now so it doesn’t really matter anymore), I took part in the Franklin Scholars program, am self-teaching myself Japanese, am hoping to be a prefect/head/deputy head girl and be on prom comity. I have quite a lot of extra curricular a but non that the average british student doesn’t have as my school doesn’t really offer anything else, so what are some good extra curricular activities so i can actually have a chance of being admitted into a decent US college/uni.

Thanks

Assuming you're applying to Oxbridge/Imperial, that stuff doesn't matter a whole lot unfortunately. Olympiads or similar subject-specific competitions or further reading will go a long way though!

edit: Thanks _gcx, I'm an idiot! I think that's plenty and I'm sure that'll go down well.

First sentence threw me off and title, got near the end of my post before I realised that they're applying to US unis from the UK and not vice versa.
