Hello,
I am looking to apply to the KCLMS and was wondering how hard and competitive it is to get in and how hard was the interview was.

Hiii
I got an offer from kings and I'm gonna go there in September.
The admissions test was a little competitive since there were loads of ppl there and hard but they don't rlly care about u getting the right answer, they're more interested in how u think and how good u are at problem solving. To prepare u can do olympiad and UKMT questions. And the interview was fine, there are 2 parts, the maths interview and the personal interview. In the maths interview a teacher teaches u a new method to do a question and then u basically apply that method to other questions and in the personal one they just ask u questions like what u wanna do at uni, what other schools u have applied to and stuff.

thanks for the reply, around about what grades should u get in ur mocks?

In my mocks I got a 9 in maths, combined sci, both eng and religion and an 8 in history in french
But I think as long as u get a 9 in maths, a 7 in sci and a 5 in everything else you'll be fine cuz they care more about the admissions test and interview anyway

In ukmt or the admissions test?? We don't know how much we got in the admissions test but in the ukmt in yr10 I got around 95 I can't remember what I got exactly😭. But as well as ukmt u can use olympiad questions as well cuz it isn't multiple choice.

That's fineee u have until December just do loads of ukmt papers and also do u go to a private school cuz they prioritise ppl who don't. And also they don't rlly care if u get the right answer they care more about your thought process and stuff. And there's another maths school called imperial and Surrey as well so u could maybe apply to those as well and even if u don't get in its not the end of the world there's so many other good schools. Good luck, you'll be fine!
