You can search for past papers on Primo [http://primo.abdn.ac.uk/] or directly via DigiTool [https://digitool.abdn.ac.uk/R?RN=744382543], our digital materials database. As access to papers is restricted to University of Aberdeen members, you will be asked for your computer username and password. There are over 3,000 past exam papers in Word or PDF format covering undergraduate and postgraduate courses from across the University.
We do not have every past exam paper available, so if you cannot find an exam paper for a particular course, check with the School that delivers that course to see if they can provide copies of past exams.
For information on how to locate past papers in Primo, see the relevant library guide: http://www.abdn.ac.uk/library/documents/guides/qgdbs007.pdf
A further guide to using DigiTool is available here: http://www.abdn.ac.uk/library/documents/guides/qgdbs006.pdf
Don’t forget that library staff are always happy to help you locate any resources you may need in preparation for your exams. Please ask a member of staff if you need help!
