Most students enrol online using CamSIS either by themselves or through their Director of Studies. Entries must only be made following consultation with your Director of Studies about paper choices. Further information will be emailed at the start of each Michaelmas Term.

Before making entries, please ensure that you know your Raven password. To help with exam enrolment, view the online demo.

All the papers available in your Tripos will be visible to you once you reach the online enrollment page. However, if you wish to check the papers and rules governing your Tripos, take a look at the entry form templates available on the Board of Examinations website. Please note that these are for information only and do not act as entry forms.

The Exam Verification process will happen, for most, in Lent Term - this is completed on CamSIS and details will be emailed to you accordingly. Exam Confirmation Timetables will be issued in the Lent and Easter Terms.

Closing dates

In order to allow sufficient time for Directors of Studies to approve entries before the Board of Examinations' closing date for online enrollment, students must make their entries by the given deadline. Please check your emails from the Tutorial Officer on this and make sure you meet the deadlines.

If you have any queries, please contact your Director of Studies or the Tutorial Officer (Ms Sally Law).

Under certain circumstances, candidates may be allowed to take their examinations under special conditions. These applications are always made through your Tutor. The closing date for applications relating to existing, diagnosed conditions is 31 January. It is important that you allow sufficient time to discuss your requirements with your Tutor or the Tutorial Officer prior to this deadline.


Cambridge University Students Union have gathered very useful resources regarding special conditions, revision and examination skills, and the formalities of the Tripos system, on their Student Advice website.

Information sessions and workshops are held each year in the College, in many Departments, and elsewhere in the University, to help you to prepare effectively.
