I’m looking to apply to top uni’s(Imperial, Warwick, Southampton etc). I’m well above the character limit(5300) and could use some help deciding which parts are worth keeping in and which parts can be cut out.

I have written about the following:
-Reason for wanting to study
-Fondest memories from engineering lessons and what I gained from them
-Favourite thing about engineering and my particular areas of interest
-what I plan to gain from studying engineering
-What I gained from studying a BTEC in engineering alongside A levels
-Undertaking 4 MOOCs during lockdown, and what I gained from jt
-Reading articles online about various developments in engineering
-Completing an EPQ on hydrogen fuel cells
-Summer work experience with ARM
-Webinars I’ve attended and how they’ve helped me
-Being a captain of a football team
-Giving assemblies to primary school kids about careers and the Jack Petchey award I got for it.
-Using funds from the award to build a turbine model and donate it to the engineering department.

I know it’s a lot, which is why I need help slimming it down.
Thanks

I'd trim down on these 3 in particular, everything else looks very exciting.

It's about the quality, rather than the quantity. If you have done a lot of things related to engineering, you should focus on talking about the 2-4 most interesting things/the ones you can write the most about/the ones that show a good breadth of interest (that is relevant to all your course choices)
