Cambridge interview reading

Are we allowed to print out the reading that we will get for the interview? I’m thinking it would be easier to annotate and such with a paper copy.

There may not be a print option for a reason, if there is I wouldn't see why you wouldn't be allowed. Do you reckon you will have time to print out your reading? I only have half an hour to read in my allocated slot.
hi! i did my interviews today and for one of them they gave me the option to print my reading but told me i had to connect my phone to the zoom to check i wasn’t cheating? i would say go for it if you really need it but overall it seems like a bit of a faff when you only have 30 (very valuable!) minutes to read and come up with ideas for the reading. hope this helps :smile:

Good luck with the results!

Seems like the best way to go is to annotate on the shared screen on Zoom?

Oh okey thank you! I think you are right, it’s probably an unnecessary waste of time. That’s so exciting that you’ve had your interview though! I have mine tomorrow, for Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic at Peterhouse!
