    Pretty broad, yes, and they grill you on your responses in the interview, so ********ters beware!

    Ok that's expected thanx for the reminder! tbh the writing part is what I dread the most bc my English essay writing skills are not strong... hope they'll take into account that although I've lived here for 5 yrs, I'm still an international...

    I'm sure they will. Trinity is so beautiful. Was there last week at night - stunning!

    For all sorts of reasons I have never actually been in the college before...But I'm so excited to visit !! And fortunately I got reserved accommodation there the night before the interview so I can really look around!

    It seems like there are quite a few people with interviews at St John's for architecture.

    You could have a look here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...gid=2095811858

    Just back from taking DD to her interview at Christ's. Sounds like they were challenged!

    Obvs. can't spill too many beans in terms of details, but there appear to have been just 12 applicants this year, which continues the downward trend for this subject since 2012 - I wonder if this is reflected across the university as a whole.
    Congratulations. Your D must be very relieved . I can't believe I've just got my interview and your D has already finished.
    I wonder how many have applied to St John's as there appear to be quite a few of us on TSR.
    I had thought that I had read somewhere that there were about 450 applicants for 45/50 places at Cambridge but was quite surprised to see that there were over 600 applicants last year according to which uni guide which doesn't indicate a downward trend which is more worrying.
    How much time did your D have to discuss her portfolio ?
