Guidance for Students
The Student Registry provides general guidance on Examinations and you will receive additional information from your chosen subjects and from your College. These pages give details of policies, statements and schemes approved by the Committee of Management for the Natural Sciences.
Marking and classing
The pages listed on the left (Part IA, Part IB, Parts II and III) outline the marking schemes approved by the Committee of Management for the Natural Sciences Tripos. The schemes describe the mechanics of the marking process, rather than any qualitative criteria that Examiners may apply locally. Faculties and Departments publish such criteria: the examination schemes presented here take precedence over any local information.
Late submission of written work for assessment
The Committee of Management for the Natural Sciences Tripos has agreed the following policy for penalties relating to the late submission of work for assessment. This policy applies to all Parts of the Tripos.
