Finding Past Exam Papers
Print copies of the past year of the University of Waikato exam papers are held in the Library's High Demand Collection on Level 2 in the Student Centre. An archive set of papers from 1966 onwards 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 via iWaikato (students and staff of University of Waikato only). Once you have logged in to iWaikato, click on "Information About" then Examinations and then Exam Paper Collection. Searching by paper code works best.
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 (either via iWaikato or in the Library). 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.
If you need more information or assistance within the Library, please ask at a Library Service Point.
