Supervisions

In Part IB Animal Biology, students are commonly assigned different specialist supervisors for different parts of the course. The appointment of supervisors is the responsibility of your Director of Studies. The course coordinator (Dr Rob Asher) can help by informing Directors of Studies of the names of those willing to supervise. When you know the name of your supervisor, get together with your college supervision partners and contact the supervisor in good time. If you do not know the name of your supervisor a few days before the start of the relevant block of lectures, contact your Director of Studies without delay.

You should expect your supervisor to set at least two essays, or comparable exercises, for each half-term section of the course, together with appropriate additional work based on the lectures and practicals. Past Tripos papers are held in the Balfour Library Office and you are well advised to become familiar with the structure of the papers and the sorts of questions that have previously been set. Copies of previous examination papers can also be found on Camtools.

Supervisions offer an extremely valuable opportunity to discuss your work in depth. Not only do they help you to obtain a good understanding of the subject matter; they also help develop your ability to present material orally and in writing.
