Do you mean 6 under timed conditions (complete 6 in an hour) or do you mean you can do 6 of them without any help but not timed?
I can do about 4/5 in timed conditions, if I spend a bit longer I can sometimes push it up to 7 (this was in specimen 1). I didn't really know the content for the third specimen paper so that was a bit less.

What subject are you applying for? Computer Science
What are your GCSE grades and A level predicted grades? International (American) student so:
ACT Composite: 36 (35 35 36 36)
SAT 2 Math Level 2: 800
SAT 2 Chemistry: 800
AP Calculus AB: 5
AP Computer Science: 5
AP Physics 1: 5
AP Chemistry: 5
AP Calculus BC: haven't taken it but predicted 5
Seven other APs which are humanities (out of which I have six 5s and one 4)
What subject-related activities or supercurriculars have you done? Robotics team (though more engineering than compsci, I suppose), Science Olympiad (more natsci and engineering as well), research project, nothing very groundbreaking but all very interesting to me
Why Trinity? I like big and competitive colleges and it seems very pretty which is always great
What other universities are you applying to? KCL, Edinburgh, Imperial, UCL
I have an interview on 9/12/2019 (Whew I almost wrote it month/day/year by instinct)

sqrt(e/m)=c Lucci0114 Athxrv and anyone else applying for maths, how did you find the difficulty of the 3rd Trinity specimen test compared to the second one? I think there's this general consensus that tests 1, 2 and 3 are in increasing order of difficulty, but I felt a lot less pressured on the third test than the second one and did more questions as well.

Yeah I think I'd agree with that 2 and 3 were more difficult than one, but I felt 3 was more doable than 2. Also, what did you get on the UKMT?

I found specimen 3 very doable on the whole; I think all but Q9 were straightforward, and even that was more intimidating than anything else. I also found Q6 on specimen 2 a bit confusing, but not too bad.

How long did it take you to do all the questions other than Q9? (Not all in 1 hour, I hope for my own sake...)

Just a reminder that explicit discussion of test question details is not allowed but general comments are fine.

I was wondering if they asked much/anything outside of maths questions like PS or extra/super curricular stuff or was it just focused on the paper?

They are not allowed to disclose that information as there is a confidentiality agreement. Revealing details would also put yourself at a disadvantage.
