Past papers

The course was rewritten completely in 2015–2016; prior to this, the course was essentially taught as two separate 10-credit chunks, but with a single exam. The material has been merged into (hopefully) a more unified whole. Older papers are available online; the material is very similar, and so it is likely that many questions from past papers will be suitable practice questions for this year also.

Some older papers and solutions are on MOLE.
