King's Maths School will interview 160 candidates based on their pre-interview score, which is a combination of the mathematics aptitude test score and a widening participation score.
The interview will involve 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?
Interviews for September 2020 entry will take place on Thursday 23 January and Saturday 25 January 2020.
