Historical Tripos, Part II

(Statutes and Ordinances, p. 296)

Candidates for Part II of the Historical Tripos are required to offer at least one paper falling mainly before the year 1750 if they have not already offered such a paper in Part I. The Faculty Board of History have agreed that there should be a mirror-image regulation requiring candidates to offer at least one paper falling mainly after the year 1750 and that the requirement for either of these papers may be met by a dissertation. The amendment will first take effect for the examination in Part II of the Tripos in 2003.

Regulation 16.

By amending proviso (viii) by inserting at the end of the proviso the words 'or a dissertation as prescribed in Regulation 17, provided that its subject falls mainly in the period before 1750;'.

By renumbering proviso (ix) as (x) and inserting the following new proviso (ix):

(ix) a candidate who has previously obtained honours in Part I of the Historical Tripos, but who did not offer in that Part a paper from among
either Papers 5-6, 10-11, 17-18, and 20,
or Papers 23 and 24 (if the subject specified for the paper fell mainly in the period after 1750),
shall offer in Part II
either Papers 1 and 2, provided that the special subject selected by the candidate is one which has been announced by the Faculty Board as a subject falling mainly in the period after 1750,
or one of the following papers (if available), provided that the subject specified for the paper is a subject falling mainly in the period after 1750:
Papers 4-5 and 6-11;
Papers 19-29;
or a dissertation as prescribed in Regulation 17, provided that its subject falls mainly in the period after 1750.
