Remember this advice isn't official. There is no guarantee it will reflect your experience because university applications can change between years. Check the official Cambridge and Oxford websites for more accurate information on this year's application format and the required tests.

Also, someone else's experience may not reflect your own. Most interviews are more like conversations than tests and like, any conversation, they are quite interactive.

One interview with 2 interviewers, approximately 20 minutes long.

What happened in your interview? How did you feel?
How did you prepare?

Mock interview with teachers & PhD students in my home country. Reading things that I enjoyed but that are also related to the subject, getting familiar with anglo-american news sites and checking them daily before my interview.

Looking back, what advice would you give to your past self?
