With less than one month until the start of the next exam period, for the majority of students, we would like to help you prepare for them by reminding you about the large online collection of past exam papers which the library manages.
There are well over 3000 past exam papers available in Word or PDF format in our searchable database, covering undergraduate and taught postgraduate courses from across the University’s three Colleges. You can either search for specific courses or browse your way towards those past papers you need. You will need to enter your University username and password to access the exam papers.
The exam papers are stored on DigiTool, the University’s digital asset management system, where in addition to exam papers you can also access many other resources, such as photographs from our George Washington Wilson Collection, or even digital versions of illuminated manuscripts.
There are two ways in which you can search these exam papers, either through DigiTool itself or via a search form on the Library website.
We do not have every past exam paper available there, so if you can’t find an exam paper for a particular course you will need to check with the School that delivers that course to see if they can provide you with copies of past exams.
There is a guide to accessing the exam papers available here and a further guide to DigiTool available here.
Also, don’t forget that library staff are here to help you locate any other resources you may need while preparing for your exams. If you have any questions please just ask a member of library staff.
