    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.

    i think OP meant tariff points


    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!

    Yeah volunteer work/word experience blah blah blah

    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.

    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!
