Depending on how competitive the university, the more things as well as your grades they look at. But generally, good personal statement, supercurriculars, extracurriculars, work experience, volunteering

Thank you! What do you mean by supercurriculars? Also, what kind of extracurriculars do they like the most?

Supercurriculars are things you do outside the curriculum (what you study at school) but that are relevant to your academic subject and builds on your knowledge/interest/experience. Some ideas here: https://www.oxford-royale.com/articl...2-9161f2cdfb52
Extracurriculars are generally less important to be honest, probably only top unis take them into account. But I would say anything that demonstrates commitment and dedication- like a role at school e.g. prefect/head girl, leadership position in any club/sports team or something done to a high level like a high grade in music or achievement in sport. Depends what you are doing, I would imagine that for something sports science related then sporting achievements would be especially valued
