The regulations for Part IIa of the Theological and Religious Studies Tripos have been amended so as to allow a candidate for Part IIa in the year next after obtaining Honours in an Honours examination other than Part I of the Theological and Religious Studies Tripos, and who has kept seven terms, to offer an additional paper chosen from Group B, in addition to the four papers required by the regulations.

(i)a candidate who so wishes may offer as an additional paper another paper chosen from Group B;

and by renumbering the current provisions (i)–(iii), as provisions (ii)–(iv).

The Faculty Board of Divinity are satisfied that no candidate’s preparation for the examination in 2011 will be affected by this amendment.
