    I have noticed that Natural Sciences applicants at Kings have to take a written test at interview. Does anyone know what this entails, the kind of thing that's in it or where I can find past papers/questions

    Fellow applicant to NatSci at King's here! Are you a physical or biological applicant? Sadly King's is quite secretive about their admissions tests and interviews, so they don't have any sample tests online..

    I would recommend looking at some of the other colleges' sample tests though, thats what I've been doing!

    What colleges have stuff on their website as sample tests? (as a biological applicant's point of view)

    I went through all the colleges and found the ones that have physical sample tests but I don't know if they have biological ones too. Trinity has one which is a mix of both and you just choose questions you can do. Biological NatSci seems less likely to have a test at interview so you'll probably find it harder to find sample papers

    I think Magdelene also has one which is a mix and you would just do the biological section.

    I know some websites/resources with free sample questions and lots of past questions but not sure if it is specific to the college you mention. If you're interested you can PM me though

    ??wtf? yes. because it's much more likely that I'm on a forum for prospective students to ask questions about admissions in order to phish for suckers than to, god forbid, ask a question about admissions.

    Was it deliberate you didn't reply to the post directly above you?
    It sounds like it's them again, isn't it? I'd love to know the answer to that question, too.

    Apologies - I quoted you by mistake! The other poster is, I suspect, not what they seem

    Yes that's the guy - I replied to each of their posts asking the same question.

    Strangely no response from them... and no more posts either...

    And now you got them banned

    ......and the interviews/college tests are imminent. Important harvest time for them, I suppose.

    I wonder how much crop they've got on the other side......
