List of FAQs

+Are the solutions to the past exam papers available anywhere online?

Starting in 2017/18, the model solutions to the last five years of complete May/June physics exam papers will be made available. When you log in to the Physics Student Portal you should see an "Examination solutions" option, which gives you access to all the relevant pdf model solutions for your current modules. (Exceptions will be required for new courses and, possibly, for certain Level 4 modules.) This is consistent with the provision of past exam question papers, delivered via the Library tab in duo.

We hope you find the facility useful during your revision. We encourage you to use it wisely: e.g. we recommend that you attempt the questions first, before looking at the solutions. Do not be tempted to think that memorising these model solutions will enable you to pass the exam, or that if you understand these solutions then you've understood the whole course.

If you have any questions about the system then please contact the Teaching Administrator. If you have any questions about the subject matter itself then please contact the relevant lecturer (who may or may not have written the exam/solution in question).
