You can also access papers via the library links box in MyPlace and via StrathApp. Occasionally teaching staff will upload additional exam paper files to their MyPlace class pages.

When are past papers added?

Library staff begin the process of gathering and uploading past papers after each diet of exams has ended. The past papers will usually be available online 4-8 weeks following the actual exam. The process involves contacting every department to request past papers approved for publication.

Please note each department will decide which papers to make available e.g. some may choose not to release multiple choice papers or August resit papers. Students are advised to contact their departments for further information if necessary.
