Hi I'm currently doing my highers in scotland and I would like to study human sciences at oxford. What extracurriculars should I do especially during lockdown?

And how likely am I to get accepted with 8 A's in National 5 and 5 A's at higher?

    I cannot say specifically about Oxford during a lockdown, but you could think any strategy or tactic that is virtual only. Extracurriculars have greater effect if the it effects many, many people. Use social media as much as possible 

     

    Options: 

    (1) a fundraiser 

    (2) raise awareness that stimulated government action

    (3) Tutoring to younger children 

    (4) Organizing food drives or pantries
