# Part C, Mathematics and Computer Science

Maths and Computer Science Part C students are required to take either six optional units from schedules C1 and C2 and a Mathematics Dissertation or five optional subjects and a Computer Science Project. Schedule C1 will contain Computer Science options and Schedule C2 will contain Mathematics options.

Each of the optional subjects will be examined by a sit-down paper or by a mini-project (please note that most of the Computer Science options will be examined by mini-project).

Computer Science mini-projects will be handed out to candidates on the last Friday of the term in which the subject is being taught (expect those which are shared with MFoCS course which will be released on the last Monday in Michaelmas term) and must be submitted in week -1 of the following term. The mini-project will be designed to be completed in about three days. It will include some questions that are more open-ended than those on a standard sit-down exam. The work you submit should be entirely your own work, and include suitable references.

Please note that the Computer Science courses in Part C are 50% bigger than those in earlier years, i.e. for each course in the 3rd year undergraduates are expected to undertake about 10 hours of study per week, but 4th year courses will each require about 15 hours a week of study. Computer Science lecturers are providing this extra work in a variety of ways, e.g. some will give 16 lectures but will require you to undertake extra reading, classes and/or practicals, whereas others will be giving 24 lectures, and others still will be doing something in between. Please look at each synopsis for details on this.
