Computer Science Tripos Part IA

Part IA students taking the 75% Computer Science option will attend all lectures for Papers 1, 2 and 3. In addition they attend the Mathematics course offered for Part IA of the Natural Sciences Tripos (NST).

Students taking the 50% Computer Science option will take one of the following:

Part IA students accepted to read Computer Science with Mathematics will attend the lectures for Papers 1 and 2 of the Computer Science Tripos in addition to Papers 1 and 2 of Part IA of the Mathematical Tripos.

Part IA students who take a Natural Science option selected from Chemistry, Evolution and Behaviour, Earth Sciences, Physics, and Physiology of Organisms will attend Papers 1 and 2 of the Computer Science Tripos as well as the Mathematics course offered for Part IA of the Natural Sciences Tripos (NST).

An A level in a science subject is desirable for students taking an NST option. Computer Science students taking an NST option are expected to undertake practical work on the same basis as for the Natural Science Tripos.
