A LIFE-CHANGING INTERVIEW
"What shape is the sky? Is ignorance bliss? Can computers think?" These are not questions designed to test your ability to recite the correct answer; rather, they are intended to shed insight into how you reason on the spot. Yet much of pre-tertiary education is assessed through standardized tests which reward those who diligently study past papers.
Little wonder, then, that most students find Oxbridge interviews – notorious for fielding subject-specific brain-twisters of this sort – an unprecedented challenge. Moreover, few prospective applicants appreciate the purpose of these interviews. More than an expansion on your personal statement or a test of speaking skills, they represent a microcosm of one of Oxbridge's hallmark features: the tutorial system, in which professors engage with undergraduates in small group discussions. Thus, many students are both ill-prepared for the style of the interview and ill-informed about its purpose, a combination that inspires little hope of success.
Designed by an Oxbridge graduate with over ten years of experience mentoring successful applicants, our preparation course leverages a deep appreciation for the interview's process and purpose to train candidates how to approach their interviews with confidence, curiosity, and capability.
