General queries

  1. When and how will I receive a decision about my application?
    Please see January: decisions for all applicants on the applicant information page.
  2. May I telephone the office to ask for the result of my application?
    No - we cannot give admissions decisions by telephone. Please read January: decisions for all applicants.

Pool interview queries

  1. How long do interviews last?
    Interviews won't be more than 30 mins and are normally less than 30 mins. Medicine interviews will not be longer than 25 minutes.
  2. Is there anything I need to attend in addition to the things listed in my invitation to interview?
    No. Your invitation to interview lists everything you need to attend and you may leave Cambridge after your last interview. There are no general information sessions or further interviews we've not told you about. As pool interviews are arranged at very short notice, it is important to report to Kng's Porters' Lodge on arrival to pick up your envelope (please introduce yourselves to the porters and say that you've come for an interview). This will allow us to give you any further information or updates on the day.
  3. What should I wear?
    We do not mind what you wear to interviews at King's. We advise you to wear clothes that you will feel comfortable in. Some people come in jeans and a jumper, some prefer a suit. We are only interested in your academic potential and want you to be able to concentrate in your interviews.
