    I'm wanting to go into finance/banking or politics. Any ideas?

    The best thing would be to simply just get work experience or voluntary work at a bank (which is unlikely) or at a financial department of a standard company (likely).

    As for actual schemes...there are various. For example, check out the 'camp America', 'CCUSA', 'BUNAC' and the 'fulcrum challenge' (these are similar concepts to duke of 'eddy').

    (I'm pretty sure you get ucas points for the fulcrum challenge thing as well!!)
