Part II Courses

Candidates for Part II shall offer six papers in all. Candidates must offer a combination of papers that is examined by at least six hours of written examination. Candidates should be aware that not all written exams are three hours long, and must ensure that they offer a legal combination of papers in this respect. 

The re-use of material from one examination paper in another is strictly forbidden. This rule applies to all papers, dissertations, submitted essays, etc. Candidates offering Paper 4, Advanced Performance, together with a Dissertation, Analysis Portfolio or Notation Portfolio, are advised that only one of those coursework submissions may include discussion of the repertoire they are offering in Paper 4. 

The Examiners are empowered to request a candidate to attend an interview (a viva voce examination) on matters arising from the examinations; however, they take account of the interview only if it would be to the candidate’s advantage. Interviews normally take place on the final Wednesday or Thursday of Full Easter Term (in 2017, Wednesday 14/Thursday 15 June).
