Paper 1/PEP. |
Physics of the Earth as a planet |

These papers, from Part III of the Natural Sciences Tripos (Physics), will be taken at the start of the Easter Term and will be examined by a written paper of one-and-a-half hours’ duration. Each paper will consist of three questions of which candidates will be required to answer two; all questions carry equal weight.

Paper 2/PA. |
Particle astrophysics |

Paper 2/FOA. |

It is recommended that candidates take the equivalent of four three-unit lecture courses. At least nine units should be selected from the recommended list of courses above. Up to three units may be chosen freely from Part III of the Mathematical Tripos (and need not be relevant to astrophysics), or the allowed list of courses from Part III Physics in the Natural Sciences Tripos, or a mixture of both. The courses offered in Part III of the Mathematical Tripos vary from year to year and may be found in their lecture listing at http://www.maths.cam.ac.uk/lecturelists/PartIIIWeb.pdf. The allowed courses from Part III Physics may be found at http://www.ast.cam.ac.uk/students/undergrad/part_iii/lectures/. Students may be examined in up to a maximum of fifteen units in addition to their compulsory project. Students should consult the Part III Course Co-ordinator for guidance about choice of courses.
