King's Maths School usually interviews around 150 candidates based on their pre-interview score, which is a combination of the mathematics aptitude test score and a widening participation score.

The interview involves two components:

  • A mathematics interview, in which we will teach you some new mathematics. The purpose of this interview is to determine how effective a mathematical learner you are. Are you able to, with our help, understand a new idea? Are you able to apply this idea independently and flexibly? How well do you listen and respond to our prompts?
  • A personal interview, in which we will ask about your reason for applying to King’s Maths School and will ask questions to find out more about you. What are your interests? What are your aspirations?

Dates, location

Interviews for September 2025 entry will take place at King's Maths School in January 2025.

We will inform candidates if they have been successful in progressing to interviews in late December 2024. We will confirm your date and the precise times of your interviews at least one week in advance of the interview.
