extracurriculars for uni

do you have to do lots of crazy extracurriculars in school to get into the top universities? i feel like i’ve not got many ones which stand out
Yes, supercurriculars are expected for entry into the top universities e.g. Oxford, Cambridge.
Super curriculars helpful, extra curriculars much less so.
Good list from Cambridge for extra reading etc - good for all top Unis - super-curricular_suggestions.pdf ( - and from Oxford - Suggested Subject Resources | University of Oxford
The whole point of super curriculars is that it shouldn’t feel like a chore. It’s an opportunity to see if you are interested and motivated enough in your chosen subject to find out more in your free time. The sort of self motivated learning that is key to university study.
