Cambridge Computer Science Interview

In Year 12 at the moment and deciding between the Cambridge colleges - thinking between Queens and Gonville and Cauis. Would anyone who has had an interview at either college be able to tell me what their interview experience was like - any help would be greatly appreciated.
I can't help much for CS but this website may be useful:

The best place to start would be the website of each College.

Gonville & Caius: https://www.cai.cam.ac.uk/interviews-and-tests
Queens': https://www.queens.cam.ac.uk/applying-here/undergraduate-applications/application-timeline-and-process/interviews

Ultimately, the interviews themselves will have more similarities than differences.

At least for Queens', there's a video of a CS interview with the actual DoS from the College:

As Pembroke Rep mentioned, the interviews should be pretty similar so similar videos from other colleges (e.g., Churchill -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I03cCH-TG_w ) are a good resource.

Best of luck!
