    Oh really? Just couldn't answer the questions or what? Just remember that it is not a final hurdle, it forms part of the overall application profile
    I missed out 2 very obvious things when sketching a graph ( I only realised after) . And the questions I asked at the end of interview 2 really backfired on me. But, i'd rather not go into it. .

    Sorry to hear that, just try and stay positive, you probably think it went a lot worse than it actually did!

    Quoted directly from the cambridge website "most of our successful applicants are convincrd that their interviews were a disaster". I'm sure you have done fine also surely if you miss something on the graph they are supposed to prompt you?

    The question you asked at the end; was it something relating to what you had done in the interview or was it a question relating to the Cambridge course/college ?

    Course. Basically, it ended up with him saying, if u were looking for x in the course Oxford would have been more suited for you .

    No prompt. Idk, maybe the interviewer was just sadistic.

    I'm probably going to abstain from asking a question, then, unless it really is something I couldn't find out by myself!

    I'm not sure if i'm allowed to say. But, it will probably differ between colleges. Some colleges may focus on certain aspects like Maths others may focus more on the qualitiative aspects and ask about PS.

    Yeah probably a sadistic interviewer. Also I'd be careful disclosing too much about your interview until 2012 cycle is over..I don't think ur allowed to discuss specifics till jan...anyhow good luck bro

    Just email them your UMS scores if necessary. I *think* if I remember correctly, that it is the same email address as the acknowledgement email.

    Sounds intense, so you're a full on expatriate? :facepalm: silly me, I just assumed that because you were born in HK you knew some or something but horray! 汉语很useful that's probably more than I know, and my relatives are Chinese.
    It's a bit more than that - I'm half Hong Kong Chinese and half White British, born in Hong Kong but only lived there a year, and have been living in the UK since I was six years old. I know some Cantonese but really not that much.
