You should consult the course handbooks issued by departments for detailed information about the form and conduct of the examinations in your chosen papers.

The maximum marks allocated to each component of the examination will be in the following proportion

Major Subject 65
Minor Subject 15
Dissertation 20
Total 100

The papers offered will normally be the same as those for the single Major Subject. For most Minor Subjects the paper is borrowed from another Tripos. Examiners may call you for viva voce on your dissertation. There is a separate class list for NST Part II BBS.
