Music Tripos, Part IB

(Statutes and Ordinances, p. 342)

With effect from 1 October 2001

The present format for Paper 4 in Part IB of the Music Tripos was introduced in 1999. Experience has shown that candidates have spent a disproportionate amount of time and effort on the transcription; the purpose of the amendment is to reduce the time spent by limiting the length of (i) the piece of music to be transcribed and (ii) the essay comprising an analytical study of the transcription.

Regulation 13.

By amending the details of the examination for Paper 4 so as to read:

The examination for Paper 4 shall consist of a written paper of two hours' duration, together with the submission of (i) a transcription of recorded music whose total duration shall be no longer than three minutes, chosen by the candidate and approved by the Faculty Board, and (ii) an essay of not more than 1,500 words (excluding bibliography and appendices), comprising an analytical study of the transcription.
