1 Applicants taking the pre-interview written assessments overseas must check the Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing website as the scheduled start times for international centres may vary. Please note that for some overseas interview locations, 'pre-interview' assessments may take place after your interview. In this situation, your written assessment will still be considered by your Cambridge College along with your overseas interview report.
