The important thing is what you learned from these experiences.
I did make notes on what I have learnt on the experiences. Would that be ok ? I am also considering getting some accounting books to perfect my accounting knowledge. it will give them deeper insight of my passion towards accounting.

Hopefully you will communicate what you have learned from your ECs and your passion in your personal statement.
will that be enough for my ps and the uni i think i will go
It’s better to write about 2 examples in detail rather than mentioning 5. Pick the 2 you can talk the most about, and explain what you learnt, how the experience has influenced your skills. Remember that you have a small character count so choosing to explore 2 experiences in depth is so much better than trying to talk about 5.
Thinking of starting my PS at August. Need to do a lot of research before I get started.

The sooner you start, the better. Even if you just bullet point ideas you want to talk about. You can gradually build it up into sentences and form a cohesive structure. Don’t be afraid to move stuff around to see if it flows better.
Actually in the long run I need to work on my maths grade as it is very poor so that is preventing spending a lot of time on it this summer as i will have a retake on september. once that it is out of the way i will soley focus on my ps duing oct and nov.
