How to find previous exam papers

Links to the past five years Unitec exam papers (in pdf format) for most Unitec courses can be found on LibrarySearch under the "Exams" tab. To find and access past exam papers for your course, follow these steps:

  1. Go to LibrarySearch and select the Exams tab.
  2. Enter the relevant Course Code, e.g. ACTY 5270, or Course Name, e.g. Economic Principles.
  3. Click Search button
  4. View the Brief record for the exam paper - links to exam papers for each semester will display under View Online.
  5. Click the link of the exam paper you wish to view.  It will open in pdf format.  You can now save or print this pdf as you wish.

Please note:

  • Not all exam papers have been sent to the Library. Ask your tutor or lecturer if the one you are looking for does not appear on LibrarySearch.
  • Answers to exam papers are not provided.
  • Avoid clicking the Title link on the exam paper as this will not display all available exam papers. 

What if the exam is not under Exams tab?

If you cannot find the exam paper under "Exams" tab,

  1. check whether your course was taught in previous years.
  2. ask your lecturer/tutor to check whether previous exam papers have been sent to the library.
