    Not a great deal really as i spend most of my time messing with mates, watching Hollyoaks or on TSR, but here goes:

    Applying for Modern Foreign Languages.
    French exchange every year
    Week's work experience at a French solicitors' office
    Paid work in France over the summer
    Sign Language course
    Tutoring younger students in English and French
    Peer coach
    Student observer
    Prefect/form rep/ anti-bullying rep
    Member of the debating society

    Then there's completely irrelevant ones like horse riding, piano, chess but I won't bother mentioning those in my application.

    I was an assistant teacher for a year 9 science class once a week. Unfortunately it was on Monday mornings and most of the time we were doing biology, so I wasn't really that much help. I was also on the student council, which did absolutely nothing and didn't even bother having meetings after Christmas. I'm now off to maths.

    Applying for History & Politics:
    My community work is working in a Samaritans charity shop and heading a debating club at my school. For my extra curricular, working in my local newspaper agency. Also hoping to volunteer at my local library.

    I'm boring.

    I'm applying for Politics related courses- mainly Politics & IR. Last summer I did a week volunteering for a charity, this summer I spent a week at an MP's constituency office.

    In terms of EC's I was a paired reading mentor at my school for a while, I was a teaching assistant at my synagogue, I went to Theatre Arts School for 3 years til they chucked me out cos I got too old, and I'm working as a youth leader at my synagogue.

    I don't do any freaking extra curriculars! I need to make something up or my application is going to suck.... My hobbies are browsing the internet 24/7 and indulging in the habitual smoking of marijuana.

    I don't see what's so virtuous about being a member of your local stamp-collecting club anyway. And don't give me bull about extra curriculars showing you're a "balanced person" - I'll have you know I can be a very balanced person without practising a martial art or being top-10 in the country at underwater knitting!
