EMT for CAS?

I am an EMT (paramedic, for anyone who is not familiar with the abbreviation) and I spent my first IB year saturdays and now my friday nights training and studying, and that has taken a lot of my CAS opportunities for gaining extra hours. Since I did my service in a hospital I could only stay two hours per week, and now I am really worried about gaining my 150 required hours. However I consider that working as an EMT covers at least the A and S in CAS and maybe the teacher should take this into account. What do you think, should I tell her to consider this as CAS?

You should at least try. You should try to make EVERYTHING into CAS. At least some of it has to count at the end. I'm thinking of proving my true creativity by building a giant tower of smoked salmon. For charity, of course.

If you're seriously worried about something not counting, though, don't sit and fret about it. Take up a temporary second activity!! It would totally suck to mess up your IB for something as trivial as CAS after all that hard academic work.
