    Does anyone know if interview invitations come via post or via email? Or both?
    Do all of the colleges use one or the other? Or does it vary from college to college? Does anyone know how Trinity notifies their applicants for interviews?

    As far as I know it's by email
    Thanks! I've been anxiously awaiting the postman AND checking my emails consistently. Now I can save myself some energy, and just focus on spamming F5. :P

    Email* (I guess some might follow up with a letter, depending on college)

    (*Different colleges are, er, different... but I'm pretty sure all send emails for this.)

    https://www.trin.cam.ac.uk/undergrad...nt-applicants/

    "Interviews will be held in Trinity from Monday 4 to Monday 11 December 2017 so please hold these dates free. We are currently assessing applications and will let applicants know by email whether or not they have been selected to attend as soon as a decision has been reached. We aim to give applicants selected for interview two to three weeks’ notice. Please note that we do not select applicants in English or Medicine for interview in Trinity until we receive the ELAT and BMAT results. Results will be released by the exam board around Friday 24 November so applicants in these subjects will receive around one week’s notice."

    Just got an interview from Downing for HSPS! I just got a letter, so Doonesbury - you were correct (as per usual) about colleges having different procedures!

    Is there a spreadsheet or something to fill in? I think I saw that before?

    Woo!

    (Although I honestly thought all were email these days - ya gotta luv Cambridge and its oddities...)

    The spreadsheet is on the OP

    Maybe it needs a column for "how did you hear about your interview: email / letter / owl..." ImprobableCacti

    I'm on the morning of the 30th, 10:00 for my first one and 11:15 for my second! My 2nd interview is with her too, as well as Dr Jay Stock. My first is with Dr Harald Wydra and somebody else, the letter just said TBC.

    When are you there?
