I'm keen on going to Cambridge Uni to do engineering. However, I don't know what the specification material/content is for the engaa exams.
Do they have specification list for 2020 exams?
How do I prepare for section 2 of this test?
Also what do I need to get in my year 12 mock exams to get an offer?

It would be really useful if you could help me out.

Thanks

I can give you some idea of how to prepare your super curricular activities in order to have a strong application for engineering at Cambridge. One of my son’s friends is holding an offer for engineering at Churchill. He was asked a lot about physics in his interview. He is outstandingly good at mathematics, and always has been, having been heavily encouraged by parents, so I think Cambridge probably favours double maths A levels for engineering, preferably people headed for A*A*, so if I were you, I would look at revising maths and practicing AS mathematics papers for all exam boards from now on. He also did a lot of Isaac Physics problems every day and ended up being invited to the Senior Physics Challenge residential. So I strongly suggest you enrol on Isaac Physics and commit to yourself to do 20 minutes on it every day. If you can, also do British Physics Olypiads. Lastly, his college offered an engineering club, and he was able to participate in the Engineering Education Scheme, if at all possible, try and do something like that as this and all the other measures I have outlined will set you apart on your personal statement. Also if you do all this you will not get bored while stuck indoors during these difficult times. Good luck and stay well.
