Entry to the three-year Computer Science Tripos

The only essential GCE A level for admission to Cambridge to read for the Computer Science Tripos is Mathematics. Also desirable are Further Mathematics and a physical science (Physics, Chemistry or Geology) at A level, or at AS level if not taken at A level. Some colleges may ask candidates to take the Advanced Extension Award or STEP papers in Mathematics.
