The Library provides you with access to Semester 1 and Semester 2 exam papers from the last 5 years, to help with revision. If you can't find the paper you are looking for it may be because:
• The unit code has changed
• It has been restricted by your Department
Please be aware that older papers might not be relevant to current course content.
