External Links

These websites may be especially useful resources for applying! Definitely read through the official Clare and Cambridge websites before applying. The other websites will also provide useful tips.

We strongly advise not paying for resources offered by private companies, consultants, or individuals. As Cambridge University says, they do not offer any information that is not freely available from the University or colleges, nor is their information able to be verified. It’s best to rely on advice from students, colleges, and the University.
