Hi everyone,

I'm worried I did badly on the ECAA, I had to guess a lot of questions because I didn't know how to approach them or I was running out of time. Especially the maths questions. I did go over the specimen paper but other than that I didn't know how to prepare and it blindsided me.

My question is how much weight will Cambridge put on the new admission assessments? Also will they only consider the assessment results when inviting people to interview or for their final decision, or for both?

The assessments are just one part of your application. They review everything holistically. No one thing is more important than anything else.

Most (approx 80%) of applicants get interviewed. And the assessment will used as part of that decision, and again later when they decide on offers.

By the way, they are designed to be hard. Cambridge guidance is the average score will be around 50%.

Might be a good idea to join the other applicants in this thread:
