    Hi,

    I had to start a new thread to collate all info under one thread since I did not see any particular discussion around this topic for 2018 session (or they're scattered all over the place).

    Please share your experience in this thread.

    Many thanks in advance.

    I've received an invitation for a Skype interview, anyone know roughly what I might be asked? I'm hoping that most of it is a kind of discussion about the area of my research proposal :-)

    I'm waiting for my referees to reply back and plan to submit my application by next week.

    Hope your interview goes well tomorrow.

    Good Luck.

    Anyone know how long after an interview people typically get rejected? Expecting a rejection, though an offer would be a nice surprise 😂

    Please elaborate, why do you think you may be rejected?

    The best thread for general discussion about postgrad applications to Cambridge is probably this one:

    This is just an issue of batching and the admissions secretary's workload. Applications are dispatched from GAO in batches and sent out to the relevant department. The admissions 'team' (usually the Departmental Secretary who might have an assistant) distributes the applications around to the most relevant academic to review. Quite when they click 'under review' can vary wildly, depending on their specific personal and departmental processes and their capacity.
