    dont over estimate the importance of ECs on your PS - i.e dont take up things just to put it on ur statement, make the most out of what you have done - concentrate on your exams - make sure you get the highest possible AS grades

    Don't do it just for the sake of putting it on your PS - they just want to know that you have an outlet for stress. If you don't enjoy it then there's no point. I'm sure you have at least one hobby you can put down?

    If you don't mind me asking, what are the three?

    Don't feel obligated to have a sport or instrument, I'm sure they appreciate some variation once in a while :yes:

    If you think you'll have a good time at the yoga classes then by all means give it a shot It's something different from the usual extracurriculars

    What is a good extra-curricular activity? The answer is one that you can relate to studying medicine and being a doctor. What skills (comms, team, reasoning, leadership, responsibility, etc.) do you gain from your extra-curric that you can apply to being a doctor?

    I did yoga and was thinking of using that, and I think it helps you relax which is useful for a doctor :unsure: I'm not sure I will use it my PS :p:

    Oh, sorry. Yoga? Yeah, I'd see no reason why they wouldn't take that as a valid activity - just don't overplay it too much.
