    Interview

    I was asked how I would answer a few problems. The questions were designed to probe how far I was able to go with limited knowledge and slight prompting from the interviewers.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Cambridge (Cambridge, England) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I participated in two interviews in total across one afternoon. They were academic in nature and not hugely based on experience or submitted work. One was source based, the other was based on a personal statement. There was no dress code and the style was friendly but the interviewers were keen to push you and ask unfamiliar questions.

    It was definitely worth filling out all parts of the application. It might seem arduous, but it can really pay off in the end. You'll never have any doubts about whether you could have done anything different. After submission, the process was very painless, and I got a great offer.
