Selection Criteria /What kind of qualities are the interviewers looking for?
We are looking for students who we believe:
- have great academic ability and potential;
- will benefit from, and flourish in the Cambridge learning environment, and
- are best suited to the courses they have applied for.
Selections are based solely on academic criteria – your ability and your potential.
Selection Criteria /How important are extracurricular activities and leadership roles in schools?
Your participation (or not) in specific extra-curricular activities that are not relevant to the course applied for are not taken into account, and do not affect your chances. However, interviewers often ask about other interests or experiences that you mention in your application where they are of relevance to the course that you intend to study.
