So there's good GCSE and A level grades...

Please suggest other things such as activities or something that give you more UCAS points or a better uni application

Thanks

Wouldn't dream of it. Gives you something to talk about in the PS and should help give you a better uni application than not having it.
I wouldn't know though. I couldn't be arsed doing it.

looked on the website: horse riding works, IB, Muisc grade 6 above, blah blah blah

EDIT: reread OP's post, and im sorry, missed out the "better application" bit!

I totally agree, it's worthwhile - I did it myself. But I think the OP meant UCAS Tariff points, and as worthwhile and hounorable voluntary work is, it won't earn you any UCAS points.

Good admissions test scores, extra curricular activities of any sort i.e. not just ones you have certificates for.

I did the world challenge but didn't do this 'ASDAN' thing which apparantly gives you 70 ucas points. I did world challenge to ehtiopia for 22 days but i'm not sure how much ucas points I can get, their website is useless. Can anyone help?! Im applying to uni in 3 days and it'll make a huge difference for me!
