Oxbridge Extracurricular help please :)?
Hi, I am going to be applying to Oxford University in September and wanted to know what sorts of extracurriculars I can do in order to enhance my personal statement. I want to do Classics with Oriental Studies as my degree and the stuff I already do are: I am the Classics Representative for the school, I teach Greek mythology to primary school kids, I have a part time job, I do volunteer work, I am going to a Classics summer school this summer, I am doing work experience at a museum in the egyptology section, I am a member of the national classics association, I am going to do some work experience in Germany this summer and I've been to places like the British Museum, Rome etc. I know that Oxbridge's main concern is with the grades but I think I'm fine on that aspect, it's just the less academic side to my application form I'm attempting to improve, so if you have any ideas on what I can do then please help. Thanks for listening to my question even though it seems rather tedious! Much appreciated : ) x

You already have so many!!! Your doing volunteer work, experience, out of school activities- I don't know what more you could really do. Maybe throw in some hobbies like a sport or an art- instruments?

As somebody who lives very near Oxford and has never been anywhere near to having the academic potential to get into a University my only observation is what you say about working in Germany sounds excellent, but you also need to emphasise that you have learnt to speak in German, and perhaps also write in Oriental...
