Completing any course or examination shows a degree of responsibility, as it requires you to take ownership of your study, revision or practical work. You may have stepped up to lead an element of a group study project. Or taken responsibility as part of a team in any regional or national competitions.
Outside of school or college, you may have shown responsibility in a team sport – particularly if you were a captain. You may have helped run a club. Shown responsibility by working unsupervised, perhaps even running a shop while the owner stepped out. If you’ve ever been a babysitter, or worked in childcare, you’ve shown a great deal of responsibility by looking after younger ones.
You’ve probably demonstrated responsibility at home too. Perhaps you have responsibility for set cleaning tasks every week. Or looking after younger or older members of the household. If you’re in a shared house and your name’s on any of the bills, you’re taking responsibility for them. And don’t forget that successfully managing your own finances demands responsibility too – particularly if you’re saving for a future goal, like travelling.
