    You probably won't hear for another couple of weeks. Usually 2 weeks or so before the actual interview.

    Entirely depends on the college - for some both interviews will be subject-specific. For others you might have 2 subject interviews plus a general interview, or one general and one subject specific.

    The interview invitation (or college web site) will say which type it is.
    Thanks for the info guys! I guess all I can do is study for the weird math problems on the CSAT... it looks nothing like the math we learn in the US.

    We probably don't learn it in the UK either :P

    I've read that Trinity typically ensures each applicant is interviewed by at least two tutors. However, I've been invited to an interview in India, and I've only been assigned one tutor from a different college. Does this mean that I've been pooled to the other college? Or am I still being considered by Trinity?

    I think they would tell you if they have pooled you.
    And generally people get pooled after their interview so no you probably are still being considered by Trinity.

    You don't get pooled until after the interview stages, assuming you're good enough for a spot but there isn't one available at your college. I have never heard of pooling happening before an interview, though Doonesbury might have.

    I imagine, due to you being interviewed in India, they lacked for tutors from Trinity, so they are using the other tutor for that reason. I'm fairly sure they would still be interviewing you for Trinity, and it is just a manpower issue.

    Overseas interviews are carried out by representative of the University, we don't fly interviewers from every college out. This means that the format of interviews will differ.

    Pooling happens in January, long after the December interviews.

    Although, in some cases, pooled candidates may also be reinterviewed in January. But this only applies to a small minority of the pool.

    Congrats!! I’m not sure what the answer to that question is but can I ask if you’re a home student and which college you applied too?

    Courses with Admissions Assessments will probably be among the last to receive invites. I doubt they've all been marked yet...

    Still waiting on for an interview from Trinity for law. I was predicted 42/45 with 766 at HL for IB, is there any chance at all for me getting an interview? I've read that Cambridge typically requires 776 at HL :\

    Would you know if multiple choice sections are marked by a computer?
