Past exam papers

Did you know that you can now access past exam papers from your laptop and from off-campus?

If you are using an ITB PC: click here for access.

If you are using a laptop or if you are off-campus, you will need to log in via the ITB Portal.  Click here for a step-by-step guide.

The exam papers are organised by course code.  Within each course code, click on the year you require and browse by semester.  Usually, for instance, semester 3 will be the first semester of the second year of the course...

Here are some reasons why it's a good idea to look at the exam papers now!
  • They show how much time is allowed for the exam
  • They can help you to work out how much time to allocate to each question
  • They give examples of how many questions have been set in the past, and how many questions you may be expected to answer
  • They can help to identify the style of question asked (essay,  multiple choice, compare and contrast)
  • They can help you to  practice exam techniques 
  • They can help you to identify key revision topics
