I am planning to do biomedical engineering at uni and I’m currently in year 12. My extracurriculars right now are:
- physics tutor
- bronze DOfE
- student ambassador
- admin for MUN
- I am planning on doing a MOOC in summer
I feel like none of my extra curricular are very strong. What could I do to improve my cv and show my interest in engineering and medicine? And something I could do before having to apply to university next year

You could contact a local hospital with a biomedical engineering department to ask if they have any Open days or opportunities for work experience? Some of them offer this like UCLH in London. But if you can’t get any work experience it shouldn’t matter, your extracurriculars sound fine as they are

Extra curriculars don't matter for engineering, it's your grades that count when it comes to university admittance - so focus on your grades (medicine is different, but biomedical engineering comes under the engineering department).
