Getting Started:

Important Information:

1.   The NIE Board of Studies has decided that only the recent five years of examination papers will be made available to students from Academic Year 2016/17. This is because course content may be reviewed from time to time and older examination papers would no longer be relevant.

2.   Hard copies of exam papers are available upon request.  Please enquire at the Loan Counter (Level 2, Library).

3.   Possible reasons for non-availability of exam papers:

  • There may not have been exam papers for certain modules in previous years.
  • The exam papers have been embargoed by the Academic Groups or Programme Offices.


You may link your reading lists, course outlines and lecture notes to the exam papers by including the permanent links from the item records.
