Past exam papers

We have an archive of past exam papers from your course that you can look at, to give you an idea of what to expect from your exams, and can be a useful revision aid.

Make sure you follow the copyright restrictions (below) on their use.

Search past exam papers

You need your IT username and password to access past exam 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 your examinations, as exams for the same module can change their length or layout from year to year.

Availability of past exam papers

Any particular exam 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 exam papers for your programme of study

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