The Cambridge Interview: Now & Then

It's that time of year when our prospective students start thinking about the daunting Cambridge Interview. So, the question is: how different is the interview process now compared to these clips from the 1985 BBC documentary?

For prospective students, it may be helpful to watch a mock interview with Queens' alumnus Jake Wright, below. More information on the interview process can be found on our website. We will also be creating a series of videos from current students with their tips and memories from their interviews, so watch this space!

We'd love to hear from alumni and students about your best (and worst) interview memories. Please send them to
