And I feel like everyone talks about the illiad ! Any advice would be great !

    If you are going to apply to Cambridge we assume that you have already developed a wider scope of knowledge in your subject area. Being smart and just randomly loving the subject without having broadened your interest in the subject won't impress anyone. Should you prove the opposite....apply!

    I am not trying to be arrogant just giving you an advice!

    Just ignore my previous statement. I just realised that I might be wrong.
    I meant ....you have to prove that you are passionate in your PS and by proving I meant wider reading.....you do not need to know a bunch of stuff in the interview. They will probably ask you something which you already know and then interviewers are going to see how you think and how do you interpret certain things

    What I want to say is that Cambridge is not for anyone. You think that you deserve it.....APPLY

    Work on the PS... Please PM me if you'll have any troubles. I am going to try to help you!
