Finding Past Exam Papers

Print Copies

An archive set of Examination papers from 1966-2017 is held in Storage on Level 1 ( LG741 .W3A4 ). It may be possible to use this set on request. Please ask at the Level 2 Enquiries Desk in the Student Centre.

Access Exam Papers Online

Exam papers for the last few years are available online in the Exam Paper Collection (students and staff of University of Waikato only).

Confidential Exam Papers

In 2002 a policy change did away with confidential exam papers. Now any exam paper will probably be made available to any University of Waikato student on request. For all Publishable papers, the student will be able to access the paper and print out copies via the Exam Paper Collection. If a department has reasonable grounds, concerned with efficient administration and/or the integrity of the assessment process, they may deem the paper to be Non-publishable and limit access to the paper. The student will be given an opportunity to view the paper for 10 or 15 minutes, at the discretion of the Departmental Administrator.

To inspect the paper, please make arrangements with the Departmental Administrator of the relevant academic department. It is a viewing-only arrangement - students are not permitted to make a photocopy of the paper or take any notes.
