It is commonly thought that getting into Cambridge is impossible- you must first do admissions tests for many subjects, and then be selected for interview. Interviews are rigorous tests of how you think and approach problems that are unfamiliar to you and beyond the curriculum and once you have done all these steps, the admissions team from each college will sit down and review all the information they have on you: your predicted grades, your teacher reference, your personal statement, your academic achievements such as GCSE’s and other qualifications, your admission test scores and your interview performance and will finally select the few people they give oﬀers to. Indeed when put like that, it seems extremely diﬃcult, but it is not impossible.

Creativity, what a cliché term it is. Every single person wants to be creative. In school, every child is asked to be creative. You move to college, you need to find creative ways to fit into a certain social group. You go for a job interview and you are asked to creatively answer the questions so you can stand out from the crowd. Isn’t it very tiring, to always be running your brains to be more creative. Is it easy to be creative? I believe, creativity is the most difficult thing to do. Creativity is nothing but innovation. Innovating every single day, every single minute, can be tiring. But when a person enjoys it, it’s a beautiful process. Every small thing that has been innovated to every basic need that came out as a result of innovation, is creativity in its bloom. If someone did not have a crazy idea about being able to see the person you talk to, even when they are miles away, video calling would have not been invented. Creativity is bold, it requires a crazy thought. It requires the mind to be so out of track that when a new idea is presented it has to be considered bonkers by everyone who hears it.

No two people are alike. Even in the same house, two siblings are not alike. Two identical twins are not alike either. Identical twins who share the same DNA patterns are also different in their thoughts, their opinions and their philosophies.
