Part B, Computer Science

This information for students who will enter the FHS in 2021-22, and enter Part B in 2022-23.

Computer Science students in their third year are required to offer a total of six optional subjects for examination from Schedules B1 and B2 (with no more than two from B2).

Classes for courses in Schedule B2 are administered by the Mathematical Institute. Please use their Minerva system to sign up for them.

It is expected that you will have studied at least four optional courses during your second year.

All optional courses are examined at the end of your third year. You must also take a project, which is worth one-third of the year.

Please note that although practicals play no part in the degree classification, you must pass the practical component of the course in order to pass the exam, i.e. you must achieve 40% or more overall in your practicals each year to pass.
