Exam past papers online

Past exam papers onlineCARET (Centre for Applied Research in Educational Technologies) have released the first stage of a pilot project to make available online Cambridge University examination past papers.

Currently, only the 2010 exam papers are online based on the contents of the printed and bound volumes of papers held in College and University libraries (we have these bound volumes going back to 2002 on the first floor of the library). 2009 and 2008 papers are being prepared and will go online soon. The process is fairly complex—for those interested who have some spare time here is the full flow chart.

CARET are keen for people to try out the new service and provide feedback.

Back in February 2010, the University’s Arcadia Project began looking into digitizing Cambridge past papers. Their final report was produced a year ago: An investigation of the issues involved in creating a bank of exam questions. Whether this is any relation to that is not clear.
