Engineering at Cambridge and the Admissions Process

The following video is taken from 2021, but may still be helpful to potential applicants. However, some details in the video are no longer relevant or are out of date: (1) Chemical Engineering is now its own separate four year course; (2) this year's deadline for registering for the ENGAA (Engineering Admissions Assessment), and this year's deadline for applying to UCAS for the University of Cambridge are both available at this link here; (3) the additional “SAQ” form is now called the “MyCApp” form, and its relevance, detail and submission deadline can be found here.
