What are some things that I can do over year 12 summer to add on to my personal statement that will allow me to stand out to my unis? Things that make unis want you , things that make you different to other applicants etc..

online courses- i did a futurelearn course and enjoyed it. ask teachers and look at uni course websites for reading lists and read important chapters. watch documentaries about the subject and more specifically, take into account what you learn from it

To physically get the stuff I usually just purchased the books off Amazon- although that can be expensive. My teachers have said they give out books they have so definitely check with them to save some money, and eBay and depop have second hand stuff, which may have annotations but in my opinion thats even better

You only really can do things that are related to your course that will make any difference. Doing generic volunteering/getting a job etc. won't make any difference for an academic subject
