Hello, I'm a hopeful applicant for Cambridge 2022 cycle.

I'm from Canada, and I am unsure what the "APAA" entrance exam is. I have asked questions and browsed this blog to understand that certain colleges require the HSPSAA if I apply. Certain current applicants have also mentioned about the APAA test. However, I have absolutely no idea on what the parameters of the APAA is. When I went onto Cambridge website for the HSPS outline, there was no mention of the APAA being a preinterview or an interview assessment.

There is no APAA test as far as I can see. The HSPSAA also doesn't seem to exist. Both of these most likely refer to at-interview assessments you might be required to take depending on the college you apply to.

The pre-interview assessment for the HSPS course was the AHAA (Arts and Humanities Admissions Assessment). This was for the 2019/2020 cycle. Before that, there was the HSPSAA which is the HSPS Admissions Assessment, for before 2019/2020 cycle. For the 2020/2021 cycle (and I'm presuming the cycle after that as well) there will be no pre-interview assessments for HSPS. However, some colleges (e.g. King's) may have at interview assessment.

I hope that helps.

Hi!
I'm speaking from applying for 2021, but for HSPS I do not need to do any at-interview or pre-interview tests or exams. I do not know if that is the same as you as you are from Canada! But for applicants this year there are no tests!
Hope I was of some help!

I literally have no clue, just keeping up to date with current events as much as I can! Do you know what the timings could be for interview on the 14th/15th?

I have no clue. Do you know if the interviews will be on one of the days or both days?
