Administered effectively, past papers are the best way to prepare students for the experience of an examination.
Past papers are a great tool to help you measure your learners' progress over time. It might be helpful to use them when you first return to teaching in school to help you measure your students' level of understanding. This will help guide your teaching to meet their learning needs. You can continue to administer paper papers throughout the school year to measure your learners' progression and development.
Past papers are also great for showing students how much they have learned and provide valuable evidence for learning. This can help to support conversations with students, parents and school leaders, particularly if they are concerned about the effects of time away from school.
You can also use them alongside the mark schemes to help students become familiar with answering exam questions and meeting the assessment objectives.
Our past papers are available from Cambridge Primary to Cambridge Advanced and as a Cambridge school, you have access to all our past examination materials.
Past papers are available for Cambridge International schools from the School Support Hub, Cambridge Primary and Cambridge Lower Secondary support sites.
Some past papers are also available on our website and are free for anyone to access:
Select your subject and find past papers and specimen papers in the left hand side bar.
We will be releasing the unseen June 2020 papers alongside the mark schemes in August. They will not be issued with grade thresholds. When you have completed your marking, you can choose to give your students their raw score with a short commentary on their script.
For all other series, you can refer to the corresponding Grade Threshold document and Principal Examiner reports.
Create customised test papers using past papers to check your learners' understanding and measure their progress in specific areas or the whole syllabus.
Discover interactive quizzes that have been designed to help identify learners’ understanding of a syllabus and help guide your teaching.
