Engineering Tripos, Part IIB, and Electrical and Information Sciences Tripos, Part II, 2001: Notice

The Faculty Board of Engineering give notice that the examinations to be taken in the Easter Term 2001, for the Lent Term modules of the Engineering Tripos, Part IIB, and the Electrical and Information Sciences Tripos, Part II (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 280), will take the form set out in the table below.

Each candidate will be required to offer eight modules in total and submit a project report. All modules will carry equal weight whether assessed by written paper or by course-work, or by a combination of written paper and course-work. Where a module is assessed by written paper and course-work, the course-work will carry weight equal to one quarter of one module. The project will carry weight equal to eight modules.

For Modules B7, B12, and F12 only, candidates may bring into the examination room notes on the module that they have written personally by hand, and any notes authorized for use in the examination room by the module leader. This includes lecture notes issued by the module lecturers. For Module B10 only, candidates may bring into the examination room course textbooks as authorized by the module leader.

Candidates should refer to the Notice on the use of calculators in examinations (Reporter, 1999-2000, p. 1062).
