Engineering Tripos, Part IIA, 2006

The Faculty Board of Engineering give notice that the form of the examinations to be taken in the Easter Term 2006 shall be as follows. Arrangements for reading time before the examination starts, and for papers not mentioned below, are as for last year.

Each candidate will be required to offer modules, the total duration for written papers of which amounts to 15 hours. All papers of one and a half hours' duration will carry equal weight, whether assessed by written paper only or by 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 a module. Papers 3A1 and 3A3 will be of three hours' duration and will carry weight equal to two modules. Each candidate will be required to submit course-work, in addition to any course-work assessed as part of a module, which will carry weight equal to four modules.

All candidates will be provided with a complete set of standard data books in bound form for all examinations. The students will be informed during lectures if there are any special data sheets associated with an individual paper. A copy of any such data sheet will be issued to students by the lecturer, and will be made available in the examination.

In the working of all questions and in the evaluation of numerical quantities, candidates should show a sufficient number of steps to allow the Examiners to make a proper assessment of their answers.

Candidates should refer to the Faculty Board's Notice, dated September 2005, on the use of calculators in examinations.
