Cambridge LLM Application - 2020 - 2021 Applications


ann007
Hello all!

I just registered to apply for the Cambridge Masters of Law program. So far I have done the following:

-Given my TOEFL
-compiling my transcripts
-working on my letters of recommendations
- working on my statement of purpose

I do have a query though, TOEFL just changed its pattern, an idea how the scoring rubric for each section goes? I tried understanding from the site, but to no avail. I am particularly keen about the reading section, couldn't answer the ending questions well, ran out of time! and Cambridge has very clearly stated in its site that a minimum of 25/30 is required in each section.

Also, how strict is Cambridge on this? if for some reason, I am unable to secure 25/30 in the reading section, and have met the same criteria in other section? Please guide.

I also have this same question! I scored 24 on the writing section but scored more than 110 overall.

I am wondering if they would take this score since it was so close and since I did get higher than 110 on the test itself.

The best thing for you to do is to write an email and ask them.

Remember that you are applying to Cambridge and that they receive applications from many applicants who actually meet the requirements. If you do not meet the minimum requirements, you will look bad from the beginning.

In my case, I had to give IELTS too, luckily that criteria was met, and I am able to apply, but I someone did tell me that they generally ask you to give a language exam, especially if you are coming from India, and other B list country.

Hi all,

I wanted to ask something. Going through previous threads I saw that 'statement of interest' and 'reasons for applying' as two different questions of 1500 characters each apparently. In my application they have only asked 'reasons for applying' and the limit is 5000 characters. Does this mean that 'statement of interest' has been merged into this?

Also if someone can give me some idea on how to go about the Cambridge Trust essay it would be great. The site does not expressly mention what they look fr in students besides the bare minimum eligibility criteria, and I do not know what to add or in it.

- Two publications (one book review, and one co-authored publication in a Scopus journal)
- One forthcoming publication in English (hopefully in January 2020 in Transational Dispute Management)
- An specialized course on international arbitration in America (ranked 2nd)

- Editorial Board Member of a quite recently formed journal in Australia.
- IELTS Band 8.5

Good luck to all of you!

I have a question. Im trying to upload my TOEFL report, but I cannot do it because it says "File is encrypted". Does anybody know how to solve this? Also, do you know if transcripts need to be submitted in english only or also in their original language? thanks

Use an online pdf decrypter or unlocker. They need to be submitted both in the original language and in certified translation.
