Decisions about the application

The course is amazing (i hope it will be). I also wanted a challenge

Course at cambridge seemed much more intersting

Very friendly, well funded, centrally located. Amazing place

Preparation

yes

We had help interview skills

RELAX!!!
Be good at maths, my interview were very mathematical

Interview

no

no

yes

Yes, an aptitude test. I wasn’t nessesary to prepare. It was a bit like an IQ test, simple and logical questions

They sat me down in comfortable chairs, it was very friendly

I didn’t get any questions i expected. I was very surprised. My worst question was : “What surprises you most in you physics course”.

Dark trousers. Casual shirt, black jumper. I went in what i felt comfortable in. My interviews weren’t very smart, although a lot of other candidates were wearing suits. I personnally don’t think a suit is nessesary

Impressions

VERY friendly and helpfull.

Harvey court: Rooms aren’t very big, moderate size. Some people might think it lacks privacy. I bit cold !!

Good

Caius has a bad reputation for food, but it wasn’t so bad!

Very friendly and helpfull.

Chatty, said ‘Hi’

Final stage

I phoned them up, i was very surprised and happy (of course)

Looking back

yes

Relax, Be yourself.
Don’t just apply to cambridge because its ‘Cambridge’, really think about why you want to go.
