Past examination papers

We have an archive of past examination papers from your course that you can look at to give you an idea of what to expect from your examination.  These can be useful revision aids.

Make sure you follow the copyright restrictions on their use (see the Copyright restrictions section on this page).

Search past examination papers

You need your IT username (the first part of your University email address, so without @leeds.ac.uk) and password to access past examination papers. You can search by school/subject, or by module code.

All papers are provided as PDF files. If you require papers in a more accessible format, please contact the teaching school directly and they will be able to provide this.

Make sure you check the current module catalogue for information about how the module is assessed, as examinations and assessments for the same module can change their length or layout from year to year.

You can search for papers by subject, module or keyword through the Exam Papers webpage.

Availability of past examination papers

Any particular examination paper will be available for as long as the relevant teaching school considers it useful. We update the archive once a year, adding the previous session's papers and removing old papers, as agreed with schools. This process is normally finished by mid-November.

If you can’t find the examination papers for your programme of study

Check with staff from the schools that teach the modules - some schools may not want their examination papers to be put into this archive.
