    It really really really REALLY does NOT matter what you're wearing. That's the least they're interested. Some go in suits or jacket & trousers, some in jumper/warm top and trousers/jeans, some even brave in a t-shirt on a cold East Anglian December. I've seen all of those and many others; hoodies, leather jackets, checked flannel shirts, etc.etc.........

    Bear in mind most of interviewers do not wear suits/jacket because they don't want to make the atmosphere too formal which may make some candidates (even more) nervous. They want their interviewees to be as relaxed and comfortable as they can be, and that's what they want you to be.
    Just wear anything you're comfortable in. ANYTHING. As long as it's not disgustingly dirty and smelly that may offend your interviewers, anything will do. HONESTLY.
    The most important thing is stop worrying about what you're wearing may affect your chance of getting an offer, because it absolutely does not.

    Wear whatever you are comfortable in. They will not judge you provided you do not turn up in like tracksuits with a tracky top and baseball cap lol. I personally am just gonna wear my normal suit.

    That's looks absolutely fine. (As the others have said, and Cambridge's official advice also says, it doesn't matter what you wear.)

    The only problem is it might make your interviewers go a bit pixelated.

    Hi, i just finished my interview. I would say the interviewer was really nice, and the conversation throughout the process was fun and comfortable.

    So just be yourself and relax! You can do it!
