Problem Solving for Maths Interviews

Weekly on Wednesdays, 8th - 29th November 2023

This free series of webinars is aimed at students who have applied to the University of Cambridge this year (2023) to study mathematics as an undergraduate degree.

These webinars will give you some strategies for solving unfamiliar problems, and some suggestions for where you can find more problems to practice your skills. We will also discuss what to expect from a mathematics interview and how you can prepare for them. There will be the opportunity to ask questions, and also the chance to hear current Cambridge mathematics undergraduates talking about their interview experience.

Dates and timings

This is a series of 4 weekly webinars, each of which will have a slightly different focus. The webinars will be held via Zoom on the following dates, chosen to be ahead of interviews:

  • Wednesday 8th November 2023 7pm – 8:30pm GMT
  • Wednesday 15th November 2023 7pm – 8:30pm GMT
  • Wednesday 22nd November 2023 7pm – 8:30pm GMT
  • Wednesday 29th November 2023 7pm – 8:30pm GMT

The webinars will be recorded, and links to the recordings will be sent after each webinar to everyone who has signed up.
