extracurricular work
Explanation:
Your context would suggest that what this person is doing is additional work towards his/her studies, hence the above suggestion.

'activities' suggests more leisure activites, sports, clubs, etc.

Just a note, as you've probably noticed, these things vary hugely between the UK and the US. For a CV, it is crucial that you know who the target readership is!

Good luck!

Explanation:
none really, only a comment:
'Extracurricular activities' is what amorous excapades are often called

Grade A


Explanation:
With a 1.6 you can safely call this a grade A. The bands for the individual grades in the UK are broader than in Germany. (I don't know if this also applies for the US. I had my own Note 3.4 classified as a Grade B, for example.
My own experience as a school teacher in the UK would confirm this assesment. If in doubt, you can always add "good" or "merit" in brackets.
Goof luck,
Anita

collateral study activities


Explanation:
collateral = begleitend, now if you're talking paid work here, I'd go for a much simpler phrase - employment alongside studies.

practical studies, practical work


Explanation:
I doubt that you will find a "straight" translation for this very German term. Also translation depends on the contents:
Praktikum (in your major, or to find out your interest; no money)- practical studies or practical work

Job (to make money for your livelyhood) depends on country, e.g. Australia - working holidays
