    Hello all,

    I'm applying to Cambridge to study computer science. Can anyone give any suggestions on how I can prepare for the interview or the CSAT exam?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, I am also applying to study Computer Science

    For the CSAT, the department (https://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/admissions/...missions-test/) suggests starting with UKMT. You could also try some MAT papers, and even though STEP questions have a different style, it can be helpful to try a bit of STEP I. And of course there are the CSAT sample tests.

    Thanks. I've been doing MAT and a bit of STEP. Unfortunately, there are only 2 CSAT papers available due to the recent implementation of the exam, so I'll save those for later.

    Good luck!

    Thank you, good luck to you too!

    I've been basically doing the same (+ some questions from my country's maths olympiad), and I am also planning to save the sample tests for later.

    You won't hear until a couple of weeks before the interview date.
