    Please give details of your interests and activities, positions of responsibility, skills and achievements. Please also include any other information relevant to your application. (250 words max)*

    This is my third year trying to apply and I believe what truly lets me down is answering training contact/vacation scheme questions. I just want to know how I can go about answering this question. Do I focus on only 1 significant achievement or can mention other achievements?

    What is the correct way to approach this question? How can I stand out?

    Extremely Thankful for any contribution!

    I suggest mentioning more than one example to offer a bit of insight into the range of activities you do/achievements you have.

    As Simmons is just one question, it's really important you maximise the word count. You can think of this question as your opportunity to pitch yourself: the examples don't need to be that impressive, but you want to try to focus on the highlights and be as specific as possible when discussing your examples.
