Papers may be retrieved from the system via a number of search criteria including Course Code, Course Title, Year of Examination, and Name of Examiner.
Familiarising yourself with past exam papers is one of the best ways to revise for your exams. It not only helps you get to grips with what you can expect on the day in terms of the amount of questions you will be asked and the time you will have to answer them, but it also gives you a fantastic chance to see what sorts of topics come up and how they are presented and examined.
Familiarising yourself with past exam papers enables you to be better prepared for your exams. This will help to improve your performance and keep the stress levels down on the day of your exams. It’s a win-win situation and should be something that you look at before you begin your revision as well as in the immediate run-in to the exam.
By knowing what to expect, you will be able to determine how much time to allot to each question as well as give yourself some really important time at the start of the exam to determine what questions to answer as well as exactly how you're going to tackle each question and at the end of the exam to review your answers.
Most exams are uploaded on to the Past Exams Database in the weeks following the completion of a term’s exams. As a new service, some exams don’t make it there for a number of reasons. If you have any query about an exam paper that should be available, just send an email to the Digitisation and Institutional Repository team stating the Course code and year of examination. firstname.lastname@example.org
