Registration for Part C Mathematics and Philosophy Courses

In Part C each candidate shall offer one of the following:

(i) Eight units in Mathematics;

(ii) Six units in Mathematics and one unit in Philosophy;

(iii) Three units in Mathematics and two units in Philosophy;

(iv) Three units in Philosophy;

from the lists for Mathematics and for Philosophy.

The schedule of units in Mathematics shall be published on the Mathematical Institute website by the beginning of the Michaelmas Full Term in the academic year of the examination concerned. No unit in Mathematics, and no subject in Philosophy (apart from the thesis), may be offered in both Part B and Part C.

A unit in Philosophy consists of one of the following:

(a) One of the subjects 101-118, 120, 124, 125, 127, and 128, as specified in the Regulations for Philosophy in all Honour Schools including Philosophy. For Part C, these subjects shall be examined by a three-hour written paper together with a Part C Philosophy Essay of at most 5000 words.

(b) A Special Subject 198, as specified in the Regulations for Philosophy in all Honour Schools including Philosophy.

(c) A Part C Philosophy Thesis.

(d) A Special Subject in Philosophy as approved by the Joint Committee for Mathematics and Philosophy by regulations published in the University Gazette and communicated to college tutors by the end of the fifth week of Trinity Term in the year before the Part C examination in which it will be examined. No candidate may offer more than one Special Subject in Philosophy in Part C. In approving a Special Subject in Philosophy for Part C, the Joint Committee for Mathematics and Philosophy may specify that candidates will not be permitted to offer certain Special Subjects in combination with certain other subjects, or will be permitted to do so only on condition that in the papers on the other subjects they will not be permitted to answer certain questions. Subject to these qualifications, any candidate may offer any approved Special Subject.

All units in the Mathematics Schedule are drawn from the list of Mathematics Department units and "Other" units available in Mathematics Part C.

In addition you may apply for special approval to be examined in Mathematics Department units not included in the Schedule; any such subject approved will then be treated as falling under the Schedule. For the procedure for seeking approval see below.

You can register for the Part C Mathematics courses you would like to take by selecting the courses from the list that appears below. Please note, that only one submission will be allowed per person so you should ensure that you have selected all of the courses you want to register for before submitting the form.  The choices that you make now are not binding but will be used to plan teaching for next year.
