Natural Sciences Tripos


All students are required to register their Departmental preferences on-line through an online form.

A number of Part II subjects have restrictions on numbers, due to the amount of laboratory space available. Entry to Part II is therefore subject to certain selection criteria, which are different for each subject. Further details about the selection criteria and the allocation process are posted here and should also be available through your Director of Studies.
