Past papers for the Natural Sciences Tripos exams (set by the Department of Materials Science) from the past 5 academic years are available on the Department Intranet and also the relevant Moodle course sites.  Department policies relating to examinations and assessed work are also available from the same sources.

Key policies are listed here.

It is the student's responsibility to submit the correct version of their work before the relevant deadline.

If submission is via Moodle, then the assignment details will indicate if you can upload revisions upto the deadline. If there is a problem with uploading the files to Moodle, then you must email the files to the Teaching Office before the deadline.

Both the University and the Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy publish statements on plagiarism.

Changes to the Form and Conduct of Examinations for each subject are published in the University Reporter. Full information on the Form and Conduct of Examinations are available directly from individual departments / faculties.

IA and IB data are retained by Colleges and the Education Section of the Academic Division of the University. 

The data retained for each Part II or Part III subject of the Tripos are the responsibility of the Department which teaches that subject.
