Part IA students accepted to read Computer Science with Mathematics will attend, besides the courses listed in this document, lectures for Papers 1 and 2 of Part IA of the Mathematical Tripos.
All other Part IA students are required to attend, besides the lectures listed in this document, the Mathematics course offered for Part IA of the Natural Sciences Tripos, together with either Paper 3 of Part IA of the Politics, Psychology and Sociology (PPS) Tripos or one other Natural Science subject selected from the following list: Chemistry, Evolution and Behaviour, Earth Sciences, Physics, and Physiology of Organisms.
Physics is recommended for those with an A-level in the subject; potential applicants may note that there is no A-level prerequisite for Evolution and Behaviour, Earth Sciences or Physiology of Organisms, although an AS-level science would be desirable. Laboratory work forms an integral part of the Natural Sciences Part IA course, and students reading the Computer Science Tripos will be required to undertake practical work on the same basis as for the Natural Sciences Tripos. There is no A-level requirement for those taking Paper 3 of the PPS Tripos.
