The Cavendish Laboratory

The Part IA Physics written examination consists of one three-hour paper. The exact content of the paper is a matter for the relevant examiners, but the expected pattern will consist of questions on general physics and the material covered in the lecture courses. The Part IA syllabus was changed at the start of the academic year 2002-2003 and again in 2009-10: past examination papers will occasionally refer to topics which are no longer taught.
