It is important to note that each college conducts their interviews very differently so my experience may be very different to someone else at a different college.

需要注意的是,每所大学都有其奇特的面试方式,所以我的面试阅历可能和那些面试其余大学或者学院的人不同。

I was called for a Law interview at Christ’s College, Cambridge on 6th December 2016. I remember feeling very nervous on the train up and especially upon arrival at the porter’s lodge at the college. While being mesmerised by the resplendent architecture of my college, I was taken into a room where other interview candidates were situated. I had two interviews, each with two interviewers, with two sorts of questions in the interview. Firstly, there are problem-styled questionswhere you are given a piece of law beforehand and then in the interview, you are given fact-scenarios in which you apply that piece of law. I think the important thing to note about those sorts of questions is that no prior knowledge about the law is needed, as I certainly had no knowledge about military law in my interview. Secondly, there are essay-style questionswhere you are given a subject and asked to formulate an opinion on it and justify why - here is where knowledge of current affairs would prove useful.

在2016年12月6日,我参加了剑桥大学Christ学院的法律面试。我还清晰地记得在火上的那种紧张,尤其当我达到学院的波特大堂时。正在欣赏学院金碧光辉的大堂时,我被带进了一个房间,与其他面试者一起期待。我加入了两局面试,每场都有两位面试官,面试中处置了两种类型的问题。第一种是问题解决型,我提前拿到了一条法律,之后在面试中,面试官给我了一些实际场景,在这些场景中,我得运用这条法律来分析这些场景。我认为需要大家注意的是这类问题实在并不需要关于法律的先验知识,我先前对于军事法学基本没有任何懂得。第二,有一些论文形式的问题,考官会给你一些主题,然后要求你形成关于这些主题的观点并有理有据地论证。在这类问题中,对时势的了解是非常有用的。

To succeed in answering these types of questions: Firstly, do not rush answers and take time cordially to carefully think about the message you are trying to deliver to the interviewers. Secondly, try and justify with reasons everything you say. Thirdly, for many of the questions they ask you, there is no “right” answer, therefore as long as you effectively reason your opinions, you would be on the right track. They are really looking at a student’s comprehension skills and their ability to take in information, analyse it, and think critically. Linking with this point, you need to be willing to stand up for your beliefs but alsodon't try and defend the indefensible!The fundamental skill they are looking for, is “precision of thinking”. Especially for Law, interviewers want to see if students can pick up on the subtleties and ambiguitiesof language that shows they recognise matters can be interpretedin different ways. It’s about having a sensitivity to languagewith almost a mathematical bent. They want to see if you are flexible enough in thought and can be taught to think.

想要胜利答复这两类问题,我以为首先,你不要着急回答,要仔细思考你想转达给面试官的核心信息。第二,你所传达的每一个观点,都要有论据和道理的支撑。第三,你要知道,他们问你的许多问题,实际上是没有正确答案的,因此只要你能有效地为你的观点供给论据,你的思考就已经在正确的轨道上了。他们其真实看学生的懂得能力、接收信息的能力、剖析才能和审辩式思维。与这个观点相关的,你需要为你的信念奋斗,但是同时不要抗衡争那些无可争辩的观点。他们重视的中心能力是“思考的准确”。尤其对于法律来说,面试官要看看学生是否洞察语言当面的微妙和含混之处,因为这展示了学生有否意识到事件是有不同的阐释方式的。学生对语言的敏感,须要像数学那样精细。他们希望看到你的思考是否灵巧的,你是否是个可塑之材。

Looking back at the day, it was in many ways an enjoyable and positive experience. I therefore would wholeheartedly say that the interview process is not as intimidating as it seems and certainly should not put anyone off from applyingto Cambridge.

再次回忆起那一天的经历,从很多层面来讲,它对我来说都是有趣和有意义的。我想我愿意承认它不是看起来的那么恐惧,那些想申请剑桥大学的学生绝不应该就此止步。
