The activities and competencies section really isn't important for university. I wrote a lot of things in there but used nothing for my personal statement. The thing that got me 5 offers for undergraduate psychology was showing that I have had a keen strong interest from when I was younger (aged 14), and that I've maintained this for the next few years.

I've done this through introducing what piqued my interest in psychology - which was watching a documentary on the neurology of ADHD. I then went onto say that I've watched several psychology documentaries, and shows (produced by verified organisations like BBC), and that I've read books on psychology as well. I also talked about trips and the subjects that I liked in psychology, and topics from my other subjects that were relevant (e.g. statistics in Maths and Biology). I then finished by outlining my future career plans in psychology, which was to potentially master in cognitive psychology. Your future plans don't have to be true and you can lie a bit about it AS LONG AS you don't have any strict interviews, because you may crack under the pressure. I didn't have any interviews, so they just saw my statement and references.

You can write about books and articles that you have read about Geography or if you have written on these topics (in EPQ or on blog), it's worth mentioning.

Just to add - you don't need to talk about your A levels at all. Focus on other things you've done outside of this related to your course choice
