    Mainly STEP I and II questions really.
    Have you seen the (admittedly easy and obviously below standard) sample maths interview?

    I saw a couple for English and Classics too. I was pretty surprised at how flat and boring they were. I'm sure they do this to give candidates a sense of confidence and ease going in, so they think "oh it's not all that horrific" and they are more relaxed and do their best. Apart, of course, from the people who realise this. Who remain pretty scared. *shivers*

    I have an English interview at King's. I was looking at my interviewers and one of them is a published expert on a medieval text I talked about pretty boldly in my PS, so I'm frantically trying to gain a body of knowledge to defend myself against a sure attack.

    Mind you, they always say it's not about what you know already but how you think, so I'll concentrate on that.

    It does help knowing a bit about what's being asked, so you have something to work with, but responding well to their help is also an important part as it shows how teachable you'll be and if you do get in it'll make their supervisions more enjoyable!

    Offer for English So glad I did it this year tbh with my grades as I think I would've been even more stressed last year in the middle of A2s.

    Is it worth of reapplying if u achieved 4a*s or higher at ur a2, given that ur first three choices were all failed ( cam, lse, ucl). My main problem was that we don't do any official exams like As in the year before u send in ur application, we just do the normal school summer tests. My result was 7A1s which was equivalently to almost 5a*s at As, but they weren't recognised as it is not a state exam therefore they didn't go in on ucas. So if I get good results this summer, should I reapply to Cambridge? . Dunno what to decide
