Oxbridge interview preparation
The entrance interview for courses at Oxford and Cambridge Universities has a fearsome reputation. If you have done well enough to be called for interview, you will be putting yourself at a major disadvantage if you do not prepare for it as fully as you can. For many applicants, this will be your first experience of a formal interview, and the intensity of this meeting with your prospective tutors will be unlike anything you have experienced before.
I offer realistic and testing mock interviews, with detailed feedback notes and advice, to give you the best chance to prepare for your interview.
I can provide mock interviews in Mathematics and the Physical Sciences (including Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, Earth Sciences and Engineering Science at Oxford and the Cambridge Natural Sciences Tripos). I have spoken with academics and current students at both Oxford and Cambridge to ensure that my questions and interview style remain up to date, and have delivered many mock interviews to students during my years of teaching, with an admirable success rate.
I charge £60 for a single mock interview. I will review your personal statement and application to ensure I’m asking the same type of questions that you are likely to face, and during a meeting of around 75 minutes I will deliver a detailed and exacting interview and then provide detailed feedback and suggestions for improvements to your performance. At a cost of £100, I will provide two interviews, around a week apart, to allow you to reflect upon your feedback and hone your technique.
