    I'm not asking for the questions they asked, and I'm prepping as hard as the next person. If you don't want to help then you don't need to
    I know, still think it's an advantage to guide specifically what to prepare. If you do everything that you listed, then you'll be fine. If someone told you specially what to do (or what not to do in some cases) then it's an unfair advantage. Not up to me if anyone chooses to disclose that to you though, because I'm sure others do.

    again i'm not trying to 'be guided' on what to learn, I presumed it was pretty common knowledge as to whether the interviews would be standardised with the same questions, like MMIs, or whether they're specific to each candidate.

    Guys, quit asking for tips. Seriously. Just prepare like the rest of us had to because every college approaches questions differently.
    I completely understand what you're saying but I do think it's a little bit harsh. I'm sure everyone must have asked for tips at some point before their interview! I think as long as no specifics are mentioned general tips/reassurances like 'Stay calm' or 'Be confident' can do no harm.

    haha i know it's come across harshly, wasn't intended sorry. i had my interview on monday (one of the 1st i presume) and people keep messaging me for tips on what to prepare, what to look at, personal statement or not, etc. it's just getting so annoying to me now

    Sounds like it went well, well done! But just a warning, you should probably delete this post as it contains specifics about the interview! Just so you don't get into any trouble on TSR!

    People need to stop getting so triggered about others posting 'specifics' about their interviews. Sure, highlighting specific questions you got asked is bad, but merely stating you had science or maths questions in general isn't really revealing anything.

    I disagree, revealing that an interview doesn't contain maths is unfair, because where that person has that knowldege to prepare, another doesn't.
    I agree that trite encouragement is one, calming and two, unbiased. People on here however, are getting the two confused. Be careful not to bias the interviews, in any small degree, because that may be difference between you or somebody else getting that prized place at Cambridge, that should be decided on every, single equal term.
