Part II

All students in their fourth year, known as Part II, must offer two language papers, an oral examination, three scheduled papers (which may not include a paper offered in Part IB), and a Year Abroad Project (a Dissertation or a Translation Project).

The overall structure of Part II is described in the MML Tripos Introduction.

It is possible to take all three scheduled papers from one language area, or to spread them over as many as three different language areas. If you are offering your language papers in Russian, at least one of your scheduled papers will have to be Russian, and it is advisable for at least one other of them to have a Slavonic component. The books that you read will feed into your language-work, helping your fluency in reading and writing and extending your vocabulary.

You may also choose from two scheduled papers in Ukrainian: Paper SL9, An Introduction to the Language, Literature, and Culture of Ukraine, and Paper SL10, Studies in Twentieth-Century Ukrainian Literature and Film. You may also choose a new paper in Polish: Paper SL13.

Examination Papers

The two language papers that all students must offer are:

Students also offer the Russian Oral C

Most students offer both papers in the same language, but it is possible to combine two languages. Either the Essay or the Translation paper, however, must be taken in the language in which you take your Oral examination.
