    What languages are people applying for, & and what colleges?
    I applied for (post A-level) French & Spanish, at Magdalene, but Cambridge is such a long shot for me; I’ll be really happy if I even get an interview.
    What did people do for the admissions essays? Magdalene wanted one in a foreign language and one in English, and mine were 1800 and 1200 words respectively. Does anyone know if that’s in the ballpark of the right length?
    Also, has anyone heard about interviews, and how are you prepping?

    I'm applying for Spanish and Arabic! I'm surprised I even got an interview after how badly the AMES test went for me! I'm looking forward to the interviews though, I think they might be fun, but bricking it for yet another test!
