Part IB Option B

Post A-level course in the second year

The options in Russian depend on the level at which you began the course in your other language.

Examination Papers

All students take five papers in Part IB.

Last years' examination papers are available from the MML Library.

Beginner in your other language

At the end of the year you must take a minimum of three papers in your other language (two language papers and one scheduled paper). Your remaining two papers may be in any language or combination of languages.

If you choose one Slavonic paper, it may be either SLB3: Translation into Russian and Russian through Audio-Visual Media, or a paper from the list of Slavonic Scheduled papers in Part IB.

If you choose two Russian papers, only one of them may be a language paper while the other (or, indeed, both of them) should be selected from the list of Slavonic Scheduled papers in Part IB.

Post A-level in your other language

At the end of the year you will take the following papers:

  • SLB3: Translation into Russian and Russian through Audio-Visual Media
  • Language Paper B3 in your other language
  • any three papers from the MML Part IB Schedule divided between your languages, or taken all in one language.

Language Work

Students taking SLB3 will be attending two classes organized by the Department: Translation from English into Russian, and Russian through Audio-visual Media.
