    It is said that Oxford offers interview invitation based on the score of PAT.
    Does it work the same in Cambridge, specifically based on ENGAA?
    Or let's say...How many disciplines are taken into account when Cambridge offers interview invitations?

    Cambridge admissions assessments are used differently than the Oxford ones. They are still relatively new assessments and their efficiency is still being evaluated, so they aren't used to specifically deselect candidates for interviews and are only viewed as one part of your whole application.

    ^this.

    There's no pass mark. Doing well can help your application, but doing badly is unlikely to significantly disadvantage an otherwise strong candidate.
