Please note

Modules may have changed their name and codes over time, and that exam papers are only kept on Library Search for three years, and not all papers are available. 

Since the pandemic, the way that students have been assessed has changed as many traditional sat paper exams have been replaced with other formats including in-class and online tests. Other assessment formats have also been introduced and this will vary by Programme and Module.

In terms of copies of previous exam papers, the last ones that were received and digitised were from Semester A 2019/2020, There are currently no more recent examples available on Library Search.

For Students: If you cannot find examples of past papers on Library Search, please contact the relevant module leaders, as they may have access to previous papers/exams.

For Staff: LCS are working with the Exams and Awards Office looking to establish a new process so we can receive up to date examples of past papers. There is currently no system in place. If you wish to have final correct versions of papers added to our system, please contact your Information Manager
