    It's correct. It's less at Oxford because they use their Admissions Tests to deselect candidates prior to interview whereas Cambridge interviews almost everyone who has a realistic chance of meeting their typical entry requirements.

    Thank you. That's a huge cut down from 80% being interviewed.

    However, the interview is just one more aspect of an application. It's no more important than some other parts of an application. Cambridge views everything holistically.
