Let Y_s,n denote the number of part sizes ≧ s in a random and uniform partition of the positive integer n that are counted without multiplicity. For s = (6n)^1/2/ + o(n^1/4), 0 ≦  < ∞, as n → ∞, we establish the weak convergence of Y_s,n to a Gaussian distribution in the form of a central limit theorem. The mean and the standard deviation are also asymptotically determined.
