Do reading round the subject. Find a niche interest and elaborate on it. Enter Cambridge essay competitions, go to Cambridge medicine master classes. Go to Cambridge science week for inspiration, there is a medical day, ( weekend in February or March)

But best of all join St. John ambulance. You can take badges, and end up with a grand prior award like a queens scout. You will learn about cpr and face dilemma scenarios etc. Many people who join end up as nurses, paramedics etc as well as doctors and you get to meet likeminded people of all ages.

Best of all take the peer educator course, which will give you the opportunity to teach younger cadets about medical topics such as stroke. A uea interviewer called it ucas gold.

Good luck

If you're located around London, I definitely recommend attending the Kings Medicine in Action Lecture Series and Imperial Vision Junior Conference.

Some other things you could do is try get into summer schools or programmes such as K+ etc. Though these are often very competitive they are also incredibly useful.

Best of Luck!
